Very Nice restaurang, and probably the best in Dolceaqua. Very good food, nice ambience, good service. Not many guests because there is not a lot of tables, so we have to wait.... Better to make a reservation. Little too expensive!

Saw the reviews on Trip Advisor and forsook our usual haunts at Dolceaqua to try out ristorante Viassa. We ordered our starters and had to wait for approximately 45 minutes before they were served. The starters were good. The main course took another 45 minutes. We could see other tables in a similar predicament as ourselves. In case you have... More

We were recommended by the sommelier at the bottle shop, food was fresh, local produce, modern and traditional recipes. Owner very accommodating to two Australians who don't speak or read Italian. Make sure you get the local Dolceacqua red wine

The menu is not very different from most restaurants in the area, but the execution of the dishes and the style of the restaurant is a serious cut above the average. The tagliatelle con vongole was about perfect. A very short walk from the castle and the bridge and worth seeking out.

Well it looked good from the outside and has done excellent reviews, but...... Staff were 'OK' but lacked detail service with care and the young waitress almost threw out main course cutlery down!!! My anchovies overpowered the flavour of the spinach to the point where I cut half of the anchovy off to lessen the impact. My salted cod was... More

This restaurant was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. The food was amazing, the service out of this world. The staff went so out of their way to help us understand the menu. I had one of the best lamb dishes of my life. It would be worth the trip back to Dolceacqua to just eat dinner... More

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
