Had dinner at this restaurant twice during our stay and the food and wine is fantastic. Definately a place for foodies. The prices are not expensive and the place is not too busy. For starters we recommend the fish carpaccio, beef tartare or the asparagus.

We arrived in Le Spezia and this was the nearest restaurant with great reviews on Tripadvisor. We went, it was quite easy to get a table which surprised me. It immediately gives the impression of being a quality restaurant. We had a limited budget and so just had a pasta dish and a desert. The pasta was fantastic (chilli with... More

When we first passed this restaurant, we thought it wasn't open because of the scaffolding cladding the building and the unlikely looking entrance. The next night we decided to give it a go and were given a table in the lovely courtyard. The service was impeccable and my main dish of lamb was exquisite. We paid a little bit more... More

Definitely worth a visit if you are in La Spezia! We have a three course dinner (ex wine) for 75 Euro for two people. High quality food in a relaxed atmosphere. Good value for money.

This place was recommended to us by the receptionist of our hotel, he told us this is the best place in town and he was sooo right. The food is just amazing, we both had aperitizer, main course and dessert as well. The place has a backyard garden which is quiet and cozy, staff is polite and helpful with the... More

My husband and I stumbled across this restaurant on Trip Advisor after wanting a restaurant close to our accommodation (we were very tired from travelling). What a find!!! We didn't have a reservation, however that didn't matter - the maitre'd was very, very nice & accommodating to us. The restaurant itself was very trendy but cosy, and had a good... More

The place was advised by our B&B host and we liked the whole experience, except of service. The food was great and beautifully served, we were seated in a very atmospheric patio and enjoyed warm Italian evening. The only downside was service, which was chaotic and SO SLOW. We had to wait for the menu, for our water, then for... More

Another example of a fine dining experience which we hadn’t expected to find in La Spezia. You had to get past some scaffolding to get in, (at the moment you would not know the restaurant is there) but the restaurant oozes atmosphere as soon as you get inside. A very classy restaurant well run with very attentive staff. We had... More
