Our first night in Sestri Levante was great thanks to a delicious meal at Ca' di Ferae. The lovely restaurant had a great atmosphere with an acoustic guitar player right outside the restaurant. The service was top notch and the food delicious!

A small place so worth booking particularly in holiday periods. The menu would be a bit limiting if you came here too many times but what they had was all excellent and some a little quirky
68 euros bought us a good bottle of white friulli wine, 2 starters, 2 primi, 1 main, 1 dessert and water and coffee. Excellent value
We ate for starters a cheese plate with parmessan and gorgonzola served with honey a delicious orange marmalade and some pear slices for the gorgonzola we also had an aubergine pie with parmessan and mozzarella inside, for primi a delicious home made pasta with porcini and a paccheri (pasta) dish with tuna lime and mint which made for a very fresh tasting pasta, for main I had the vodka flambeed shrimps. Dessert was not in our plans but when we understood one was a warm ice cream with the orange marmalade we could not resist.
Everything was beautifully presented, go and enjoy.
Note to the restaurant, I come to Sestri regularly so please keep changing your menu so I can try other things. thanks

Sestri Levante is a comfortable gateway to the Cinque Terre. There is nothing better than to return from a day walking to dine at Ca di Ferae, a modest but terrific restaurant in Via Nazionale.
Frederica is the "Maitre di"/ front of house waitress extraordinaire, who describes (in English) the menu in an accurate, friendly and colourful manner. Her descriptions are only outdone by the food itself.
The pizza is light, but filing, with subtle flavours only achievable with fresh produce. The pasta is al dente and again flavoured with fesh local ingredients. The meat was as flavoursome as Australian beef, and again cooked competently and with care.
The wine selection was small, but had an intersting range of local and regional Italian wines of varying price range. Frederica was knowledgable about the wine, but equally readily resorted to a reference book to answer one of our queries. It seemed that nothing was too much trouble. Her passion for flavour, texture and nutritional value of food is clearly evident.
Ca di Ferae is well worth a visit (or two, as we did), for it's culinary integrity and fresh local produce, in a tourist destination which uncommonly produces excellence.
