Great place, good value, top notch service

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... read 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

I walked from my hotel that is right next to the train station. I followed my phone gps and arrived in less than 15 minutes.... 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

After three weeks in Italy we know for sure: if you are loking for fresh Italian (sea) food this is the place to be. Top quality products and great looking dishes. By far the best fresh pasta we had!

The 4 of us went to the restaurant and ordered as usual antipasto, primo piatti ,secondi and dessert. When taking our orders the host said we should just order antipasto en primo piatti and after see if we're still hungry, we weren't , we thought it was very honest of him to suggest that. By the way the service was... More

We found this small, cozy restaurant in a narrow street in La Spezia. The waither was so friendly and suggested us a fish set menu. Although I don't like set menu dishes, I haven't regretted of my choice. Each course was delicious and when it was time for the dessert, we were already full but also stuffed it into our... More

We decided on the surprise menu- "maked in the moment" which for 30 Euro included service, wine, water, 3 courses and DESSERT! The food was OUTSTANDING.....all seafood and very gourmet. We enjoyed every dish and... More
