Description: Il locale, meritatamente rinomato, si dispone su due aree: uno spazioso salone interno, con vivaio di aragoste, vetrate ed eleganti arredi, l'altra direttamente sul mare, ombreggiata ed immersa nel giardino, in prossimita delle piscine. I titolari Claudio e Pervinca sanno fondere simpatia e professionalita, accolgono e seguono in modo accattivante e discreto i clienti. Nulla e lasciato al caso o preparato in serie: dal pane fatto in casa alle appetitose entrees, ai primi piatti di pasta casereccia, quasi "disegnati" in delicati piatti dalle forme originali ed armoniose. Ma, insieme a crostacei e frutti di mare, il pesce (sempre rigorosamente fresco, di pregio, assortito e nostrano, tranne ovviamente le ostriche!) e protagonista delle varie prelibatezze che vengono ogni volta preparate espressamente con cura e creativita da un'affiatata ed organizzata equipe. Il servizio ai tavoli e condotto da personale esperto e garbato che sa orientare anche la clientela piu esigente nella scelta (per altro ampia e davvero apprezzabile) dei vini e dei dessert.La struttura offre inoltre la possibilita di degustare Sushi preparato con il pesce nostrano .

Dear Aschemkes,
We are deeply saddened by the fact that your experience at our Restaurant was not a satisfying one. Our main goal is – and has always been – to make our Guests happy by giving them the best quality products, for example super-fresh fish only and the best wine labels from our country and abroad, at a coherently reasonable price. At the same time, we strive in continuous research for new recipes and ingredients, making a visit to “A Spurcacciun~a” a new one even for our most affectionate Guests. We look forward to hear from you and try to understand what went wrong with your dinner at our’s…Our staff is looking forward to have you as our Guest in the very near future.

“get the menu in English”
Reviewed 9 July 2012

liked : The food was great and the different kind of wines and champagne they have its amazing. The best of the best for wine lovers.
disliked: get the menu in English its king of annoying to ask all the time the waiter to translate it for you, I would expect that by paying more than 150 euros other languages should be available.

Dear gipsodrivesabentley,
thank you very much for such an enthusiastic feedback. Your flattering words are the best motivation for a restaurant for which tradition and quality have always been focal points. We look forward to have you again as our Guest, maybe next time you could try one of our special Tasting Menu or the one-of-a-kind “Hands Only” menu: try it and see…or, should we say, ”feel”.

“Nice...nothing out of this world.”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

Locals love it. It is considered to be one of the best restaurants in Savona.
I have been 3 times and have never been very impressed with the food there...Typical Ligurian dishes, fish, meat...They have different ambiance rooms.
I always had dinner upstairs and it reminds me of restaurants in Bergen county, NJ, in the 80s.
Downstairs however, they made an effort and have created different moods through design.
They also serve sushi but have not yet tried that side of the restaurant!
