This restaurant has many positive votes, so we decided to give it a try. The menu comes in 5 courses. First is a kind of pasta with cheese, second is pasta with tomatoes, third is a kind of flat bread with pesto, fourth is the same flat bread accompanied with 2 sorts of cheese and a plate of salumi and mortadella, fifth is the same flat bread with nutella. The taste is ok, but all courses are quite heavy and very rapido served. If you're looking to get your stomach filled for a cheap price, this is the place. If you're looking for more variation in the menu, try something else.

A set menu of 3 pasta courses followed, by various cheese and meats. Pasta was very nice, although after 3 courses we were already getting filled up! Good friendly service, who were very relaxed. Considering the fixed price of 19 euros including wine per person, it was a very reasonable meal, although a bit large and the courses did not have a huge variation. Simple and cheap

The decor is charming, the service very friendly, the menu concept interesting, but we just find the food bland. The rave reviews received by this restaurant seem a bit too enthusiastic to be credible. But then, maybe, it's just us...

Yes, it's just you... but for our fault...

We don't explain all about our kitchen and it was a real pity, because it's the real food from ancient Liguria!

Try again!

Daniele is a wonderful host. He welcomed us in, even though he was closing for mid-afternoon. He shared his love of Italy. We just had to go back for dinner. Delicious, simple, traditional. The interior brought us in, but Daniele brought us back.

This restaurant offers a set menu of five different pasta dishes inclusive of wine which makes it really affordable and a great experience. The pasta was of a different style to what we have had before in Italian restaurants but we really enjoyed it and it was excellent value for money. It is only a small restaurant but it has a great buzz and feel about it and we had a very enjoyable evening and can highly recommend. The two owners one of which was Daniel (sorry I can't remember the other one's name) but they were both so hospitable when they found out we had come all the way from South Africa they were kind enough to offer us complimentary liquours which was very kind of them. We will definitely be back to Sestri Levante as it is an absolutely stunning destination for a holiday and we will also be back to this restaurant - hopefully next year guys! Also thanks to Jessica our waitress for looking after us so well. Definitely put this restaurant on your list when staying in Sestri Levante. Many thanks for a wonderful meal and memorable evening.
