Not only 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 A Viassa during my visit. In fact, I have been here for lunch 5 times in the past 3 years. And each time the food and the... More

A gem. Refined regional dishes prepared with skill and care. Great wines at reasonable prices. Staff are professional and warm. You cannot go wrong here.

We went there twice. First time, after running away from Zafferano. We had good fish, a very yummy semifredo (probably one of the best in my life) and good local wine. The second time we went for a proper dinner with starters and main courses and should say that this time the food was not as good as the first... More

I have eaten here many times, both in small groups of 4/6 friends and with big groups of colleagues (around 20/25). The place has always been up to expectations. The food is prepared with first-quality local ingredients (olive oil, fish, vegetables...) and the menu varies according to the seasons. The service is perfect; the waiters are helpful but not overwhelming.... More

We had a lovely lunch here. The ambience is modern and warm at the same time. The service was attentive but not overwhelming. We asked the owner if we could do a wine tasting of the local Rosesse wines and he opened bottles to accommodate us. The food was excellent, a bit nouvelle but in a good and honest way.... More

Warm enough to eat outside . Dinner was delightful. Good food and service. Should serve a different kind of bread..especially since their oil was stupendous! All in all, it was a good choice. I would definitely return.

How could you be disappointed with this restaurant?!! It is nothing short of excellent and fully deserves its number 1 spot, the restaurant did not have a spare table the night we visited and despite the fact that there were only two people serving, the service was excellent, we did not wait for anything and the food was exquisite, the...

This had the highest rating on tripadvisor for no reason at all. The service was good, but the food was just above average. The restaurant was bright and perhaps tried a modern interior, but it just lacked the nice atmosphere that a candle light can give. Had they dimmed the light and lit some candles, it would have looked nice.... More

Situated in a side street in Dolceacqua from the outside looks modern but not particularly attractive but persevere forget the out of character (to the rest of the vilage) minimalist decor and simply enjoy some great food and service

We experienced some wonderful food, most of which was sourced locally. The staff were extremely helpful and attentive without being intrusive. We will definitely return here.
