We went 3 times in the week we spent in Spinola Bay. I had the daily fresh fish each time and it was always delicious. Try the Frito Misto as a starter to share €12 and absolutely delicious. My husband had the fillet of beef and enjoyed every mouthful. It does get busy though so service can feel a little quick as they can probably fill your table as soon as you move. On the 3rd floor the tables for 2 are somewhat squashed down the middle of the room and are really too close to each other, you can hear most of the conversation from the diners at the next tables so does not feel private (we preferred the 1st floor). A nice friendly team serve the meals and drinks.

Sadly our experience in Peppinos wasn't amazing. My starter (mussels) was quite nice with large succulent mussels whilst my partners starter of prawns and avocado was quite average. Nothing really to differentiate it with any other prawns and avocado anywhere else.

My main, giant prawns, was also nice. My partners main of salmon ravioli, was uninspiring. The salmon flavour came mainly from the sauce with the ravioli filling being almost flavourless.

We seemed to be served by one of the main men, but service seemed rushed which was also a pity. The restaurant was quite busy with many large reservations coming in which may have contributed.

Finally, the bill was quite expensive compared to some of the other places we dined at previously in the week, and we had 3 courses at the other places..

Altogether an average meal with no differentiator. A pity as the restaurant has clearly been there for years, long before the more trendy restaurants across from it. I hope that the management up their game and compete with their neighbours at the same level.

Fabulous fresh fish and good choice of meats. Fantastic little outdoor terrace overlooking the bay. Service extremely friendly rather than well polished but that was what I liked more. Very good meal for a reasonable price. This is not a big restaurant so you need to book - and it is closed on Mondays.

Me and my colleague were looking for a place for dinner where we could eat some fresh fish and we were recommended this place by our hotel. When we arrived we were given a table on the third floor overlooking the bay. The waitress was really nice and helpful. The menu consisted of delicious sounding Italian food. We chose some tune carpaccio and the fresh fish of the day, both specials of the day and both were amazing. The pasta of the day also looked beyond delicious. Highly enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere of the place, so try it out if you are in the area.

Very nice Italian restaurant, with a fair variety in the menu. The place is not extremely big, but it's very popular at dinner time, so make sure you book a table in advance if you don't want bad surprises!
