“Pleasant if not outstanding”
Reviewed 3 October 2012

We wandered around looking for somewhere to eat on a windy weeknight at the end of peak season and selected Cru 14 because a) it was open b) it was pretty well patronised.

We sat outside, which was fairly well protected by the curtained walls, but was a bit smelly due to a long table of smokers next to us (the smoke had no where to go, I guess).

The waitress was excellent, with pretty good English, which helped us a lot. She was welcoming, friendly and attentive. We had just had 2 months of nothing but Italian foods, so I had a burger and my girlfriend ordered a pasta. The burger was decent, but not really in Australian/American style. The pasta was unfortunately almost too salty to eat. We had a nice house white which was very pleasant. We thought it was reasonably priced, but the meal could have been better.

“Exquisite food, exquisite atmosphere!”
Reviewed 28 July 2012

What a fantastic evening! Restaurant is just on the corner of the harbour in savona and doesn't look much from the outside but don't be put off, inside is wonderful what a nice place to spend and evening, staff were the most welcoming we've experienced all holiday, owner and his wife went to extrodinary efforts to explain the menu, when the food came we were not disappointed, best mussels I have ever tasted, steak I had for a main was perfectly cooked and flavoured, owner recommended us the right oil to accompany the food. When we had finished, fairly late, the wife of the owner showed us around her wine collection a beautiful perplex arch with a few hundred bottles! Couldn't see another restaurant in savona topping it, worth the visit!
