Description: A Gourmet experience in a charming setting: il rosmarino Restaurant is located inside Relais & Chateaux La Meridiana.Experience daily homemade pasta - troffie and ravioli - fresh baked bread, homemade grissini and focaccia. Every dish is prepared with care and skill as traditional Ligurian food is our passion.Here herbs play a major role: basil, marjoram, thyme, sage, chives and rosemary add a touch of flavour to many preparations.A good reason to taste Ligurian menu is the excellence of its fresh products, because artichokes, zucchini and the violet asparagus from Albenga are a must, in combination with a superb extra virgin oil.Winelovers will find their paradise at "il rosmarino" cave... where Edmondo Segre collects the best Italian wines of many different vintages. He can lead you to a sensory examination to highlight differences between similar wines and he can also organize vertical and horizontal wine tastings.His wonderful cellar offers a rich collection of more than 7000 bottles, from rare vintages by famous producers to the emerging new generations of wine makers.Outdoor dining in Summertime: alfresco tables in a breezy patio by blooming gardens are waiting for you during July and August.Open only at dinner-time, reservation suggested.

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.

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!

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
