A Viassa is one of the best restaurants in Liguria and for sure the best one in Dolceacqua. I have been eating there numerous times and owner Stefano and his fantastic chefs have never let me or our guests down. Food is locally sources and excellent quality. Service is friendly and professional. Always delightful to visit this restaurant.

Wanted to visit Dolceacqua so read tripadvisor reviews to find a good restaurant to have a meal while we were there. A Viassa is worth the journey all by itself, everything is sourced locally and is a delight! Food is served with pride and knowledge about the ingredients and the wine served with the food.was memorable. Thanks to earlier reviewers... More

Not only is A Viassa the best restaurants in Dolceacqua, but one of the best restaurants in the Riviera di Ponente. I visit the French Riviera annually and make at least one trek from Menton to the perched village of Dolceacqua. Of course the tunnel-like streets of the old town are spectacular and the bridge made famous by Claude Monet... More

After a two hour drive from our home in France we were ready for lunch. A Viassa had been recommended by a retired professional chef; she was spot on. Small quick fried cubes made from chick pea batter were served with our aperitif. It was amazing. Very simple, but we could actually taste the chick peas as if the flour... More

We had a delicious meal in lovely surroundings at A Viassa. This small restaurant has a touch of elegance, with white linen tablecloths, but it's not at all stuffy. The service is friendly and attentive. The menu offers some dishes, like my pasta with a sun-dried tomato and squid sauce, that are a departure from more typical Italian fare. We... More

Having dinner in this small resto is an old habit, but still surprising how they keep innovating on the track of local cuisine: forget about heavy and thick creamy styles of the french traditon : just take a seat and make your choice : you shouldn't miss it

Three of us had a wonderful lunch. It was the only restaurant busy in town and the recommendations were correct. The staff were attentive but professional and the owners are clever with their simple interior. Our food was delicious. Recommend to others. Thanks Tripadvisor for steering us to A Viassa
