Description: 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.

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

Excellent family-run establishment providing fine Italian cuisine with a touch of creativity. First class raw materials and excellent service. They even have a coffee menu! Beautiful outdoor dining area open when the weather permits. Excellent price-quality. I will return during my stay in La Spezia for sure.

We stopped by this little restaurant while on a Italy road trip and we couldn't have been happier. We ordered several main dishes and while chatting to the waiter (possibly owner), we told him that we were going to share all the dishes between the two of us. He surprised us by having all four dishes brought to us on... More

I stumbled upon it by chance, or I should say out of sheer luck. Excellent food, great service, one of the best meals I had in a restaurant.

This place was fabulous! I disagree with a previous review that this was a tourist place. In fact, I believe we were the only tourists there on a recent evening! We went by the night before and the owner did not have space for us - but recommended another place (excellent). So, we may a reservation for the next evening.... More
