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

The food had hardly any taste, was overpriced. We had to ask for a glass of wine when the main course was served, by the time we got it there was no food left. The restaurant itself was nicely decorated

Waiter very attentive, food delicious and a very relaxing atmosphere. From the outside scaffolding but you need to walk inside.

Elegant but still relaxed ambiance, friendly and efficient staff (the owner waits on the guests while his wife cooks) and divine food! I had the fish with ricota di buffala and caramelized onions... Delicate and tasteful! Great wine by the glass also. Very fair prices given the quality provided. Strongly recommend!

Go if you want to taste food that talks about the essence of Italian flavours. We look forward to going back.

A fine restaurant with interesting dishes, some which I haven't heard of before, open when other places are closed.

We did not expect such excellent level of Italian cuisine in La Spezia. We just arrive La Spezia from Rome, and this is the best meal we had since we arrive Italy. The appetisers were all delicious, each of us tried a different pasta, my brother ordered the pasta with onion and truffle (excellent) my nephew ordered the pasta with... More

It was one of the best meals we had in Italy, worthy of Michelin 3 star. It was unpretentiously nice meal. The service was excellent. I had one of the best steak tartars ever. The egg yolk was perfectly cooked on the outside, yet still runny on the inside. The beef was most tender and the complements were exceptionally, especially... More

Fantastic little restaurant, not far from Hotel Firenze e Continental. Great food, the chef (she) and (i think) the owner (photographed on their web page) are really friendly and chatted with me about my choices. He asked me all about my preferences before recommending a lovely local wine.
