Bayon is the waiter/owner and does a professional job. Very difficult to get reservations. He didn't answer the hotel's frequent calls he said because the small interior was fully booked (altho there was an empty table inside while we were there. We got one of 4 outside tables (that were all filled within 15 min of opening time). However the... More

I love the seafood here. The dish I like the most is the sea bass cappacio and raw lake trout. The dish was delicious. The service is excellent as well. When we were there, the restaurant only opens 4 days a week (Wednesday to Saturday). We managed to eat there 2 times on this trip.

We ate here for the first time while on holiday last week and am surprised we have never come across this gem as we visit Spezia regularly. We will definitely be back! We booked that morning and just as well as it was fully booked. In future I would book before leaving home as I have heard it's not easy... More

This is an excellent place for dinner. My parents were in La Spezia earlier in the year, and had tried to get a walk-in table twice, but had to be turned away. So we made sure that we called before and reserved a table. When we arrived at 730pm, it was empty, but the manager/waiter (there was only one man... More

This is a top spot for a nice diner. Not too formal but the quality is outstanding. The sea food salade is soooo fresh, you taste that the catch of from that day. The waitor does an excellent job. He knows when to approach the table and when to keep his distance. All in all, great value for money!

The whole picture was just right: great food, great atmosphere, great service, great price. This restaurant just has what it takes. We went for a primi and secondi, both with seafood, and it all was really fresh. Homemade pasta with shrimps, gnocchi with lobster, all perfectly seasoned. Would definitely return whenever I get the chance. Unfortunately the restaurant was fully... More

An excellent restaurant, I've been a loyal customer in the last two decades and the quality of food and service never disappointed. Seafood properly prepared and served with fresh ingredients and creativity. Prices do take in account the "less than optimal" Italian economy and are absolutely a bargain in the actual food scene in La Spezia. Do not miss this... More
