Gorgeous food

Elegant restaurant with outside sitting area. The menu is not large but everything is freshly cooked and very tasty. Choice of about 4 starters, 4 pastas and 4 mains - you can mix and match. I had the fafalla con gamberette to start followed by calamari con zucchini. Both were excellent. The... read more

We went twice for dinner and we agreed that it was one of the 3 top restaurants we visited in our last trip to Italy. The owner is very nice and accommodating. Food is surprising and original. Some of the dishes are very local, like rabbit. Others are so local that unless you ask most likely you won't know what... More

My husband and I luckily chose this restaurant whilst visiting Dolceacqua. The food and service were excellent and very good value. The local red wine at €4 per glass was superb.

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
