Excellent cuisine

Our meal was excellent. You can choose either 2 or 3 courses. Seared tuna to start. Veal tonnato, prepared differently than normal but extremely good. Pasta with shrimp. Wine by the glass was local and very very good. Staff were knowledgable and friendly. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Didn't like anything except the bicycles and the pianist. It is a shame that the overall impression was to separate one from one's money as efficiently as possible.

Dear Mr. SmithYLondon, We received your comments about our “Ristorante il rosmarino” and we are happy to know that you liked our bycicles and the pianist. The Italian Western Riviera and Albenga is a blessed land, offering also other things: the best spiny artichokes, beefsteak (in Italian “cuore di bue”) tomatoes, purple asparagus and “trumpet-shaped” zucchinis. Tasty fishes and excellent... More

This is Italy, not France! Everything was pure and simple yet sophisticated and so full of balanced flavours. Venison tartare, Guinea fowl, tomato and strawberry desert, pineapple carpaccio. Large dog friendly restaurant!

I had dinner in this restaurant twice, first with a group and the second one with my family. Both were remarkable experiences of having real Ligurian cuisine. My son had a plate of spaghetti with ragù, finished everything and declared it as one of the best he had. There's a great attention to details, the amount of food is just... More

The menu (small but various) changes every day, depending on every day catch of fish and products which the Chef likes and bought on the morning market. These ingredients turn into delicious creatives dishes, so Italian but with strong Ligurian influence. Also, on your request, the Chef can prepare practically everything you want (and moreover, you can order a dish,... More
