The food is an excellent example of home-made style Ligurian cuisine, with ample servings and not expensive at all. We had antipasto, which consisted of separate dishes of cold meats including prosciutto, quiche, sundried tomatoes in olive oil, a type of crusty fried dumpling-like bread, home made ravioli as an entree, plus a basket of bread - after which we...

We were staying close by, but the place can also be reached by bus number 13 from the center of La Spezia. The location is very nice, and it gives you a great view of the city. We ordered the homemade ravioli and the strawberry tartlet, and were not disappointed neither by the quality nor the price, and the great... More

We organised a cooking class through Cinque Terre Riveria while staying in Vernazza. This experience was one of the highlights of our three week trip to Italy. Simona and Endrio were wonderful hosts, nothing was too much trouble, including transporting us between the train station and their wonderful restaurant. Simona patiently taught us the skills of making pasta and pesto... More

What a great place! It was recommended by the wonderful B & B, just around the corner. Whilst it is a fair way from La Spezia, it is well worth the trip. The food was wonderful - pastas homemade and delicious (can recommend tortellini, tagliolini with pesto, tagliolini with mussels, pansoti with nut sauce, artichoke ravioli with butter and sage),...

Really enjoyed the multiple meals I ate here. I was staying nearby so I frequently walked down the hill for a dinner. The pasta is homemade, and it is of very high quality. I love the butter sage sauce. Their basic salad "insalata mista" was the best I had in Italy because it was accompanied with some very high quality... More

Our cooking class with Simone will forever be in our hearts and minds. I found this treasure on trip advisor and I would like to share it with everyone! Simone picked us up in port from our ship. We made several pastas and pesto. After our cooking class we sat down in her family's darling restaurant to the best meal... More

First time in La Spezia, lived close by in a B&B and were recommended this place. Went there for dinner and had a great homemade Ravioli with spinach and ricotta. Fantastic meal for a very low price.

My mother, her boyfriend, and myself had a fantastic meal at this adorable restaurant last night. It's off the beaten path, but once you get there it's completely worth it (if you pick up a #13 bus it will drop you off right in front). The antipasto appetizer was unique and beautiful. The pasta is handmade and the house wine... More

I'm the mom who was fortunate enough to accompany my daughter and granddaughter to this wonderful cooking class. This was such a highlight of our trip! My granddaughter came up with the idea and did the research, so that makes it even more special. The three of us had a private lesson in Italian cooking by the talented and warm-hearted... More

This is the first review that I have ever written on a website. I felt compelled to share the details about the wonderful cooking class that we took with Simona. My mother, daughter and I were picked up by Simona at the train station in La Spezia, and driven to her family's charming restaurant in the hills of La Spezia.... More
