Great Meal

We had the chef's menu...sampling five entrees. Dessert was a plate of 9 desserts per couple. This was one of our favorite dining experiences we have had in years. Chef and husband were phenomenal. The local wine, Cheo, paired well. Facility and ambience was perfect. Food served table side with... read more

I am writing this in the restaurant section of TA because we did actually get to eat a meal at this restaurant. My family and I signed up for a private cooking lesson with Chef Sylvia and what a treat it was. Her sous chef, Francisco started us out in the market shopping for the fish we were about to... More

True that one should not order "Escargots" in an Italian restaurant in a town of the Riviera, but then why have them in the menu if they come out from the kitchen over cooked and without a proper gratin? Even the main dishes we tried some were good some just average. Service is slow but this is not bad if... More

You can tell when food is prepared when you order it... and this is the place. When you walk in, you'll notice a lovely decor, using the original brick and arches... with a sort-of open kitchen... the dining area is smallish and very contemporary. Our hotel recommended... and good thing. I don't know why, but La Spezia seemed a little... More

But it was heaven! One of the best meal I have ever eaten! Everything was prepared with attension, great presented and SO TASTY! It was... More

The food here is excellent and the wine list is likewise. Prices are reasonable and you can have a five star meal of for a realistic price. The staff is excellent and their English is excellent. You will have no difficulty navigating the menu and understanding exactly what you will be getting. The only knock I had on this place... More

It's off the main shopping street. Don't let the dirty street and old menu behind the glass scare you away (it almost did me). Great wine choices and nice outside eating. The spaghetti vonglie was really good, probably one of the best I've had. The local red wine from liquria was fantastic. The owner speaks English and is a great... More

This is a brilliant restaurant we found quite by accident. Great luck. The food was beautifully presented, the quality very high, an extensive wine list and great staff. It was neat that the Lady Chef (think she was wife/part owner) came out to enquire about our satisfaction. Husband taking the orders had a great manner and very helpful in helping... More

I found this restaurant through Tripadvisor and went there with my girlfriend. The restaurant is really fabulous: very cozy, with a lovelly garden / outside place for people to eat. The food is very good (a little expensive) and the wine card is extensive. It was the best place I went for dinner in La Spezia.

We found this place via tripadvisor.com website. We ate octobus salad and spaghetti in here and drank cinque terre red wine. Both of mine and my wife's food, presentation of the plate and cleanless are great. Also the waitress was very polite and kind. The cook got Michelin stars for many years. After tasting the food, we understood why the... More
