Restaurant is currently closed

We had this place in mind at a La Spezia visit only to learn that it is currently closed as the old chef has passed away recently. We hope it will reopen, it was obviously a great place.

This was such a great restaurant that we ate there twice! Dalia and her family were amazing!! They are not only wonderful cooks but the hospitality could not be beat. Dalia made you feel like you were long lost friends they hadn't seen in years. Quaint small restaurant with a very warm feel to it. Definitely get the ravioli or... More

If I am not mistaken this restaurant is located across from the hotel. Simple looking place but the food is excellent.

When travelling, my husband and I always like to find an "authentic restaurant" in each place. This one certainly fitted the bill. Plastic tablecloths, painted walls and an entertaining 'maître de" who spoke to us only in Italian. We went there a couple of nights in a row because the food was so fresh and tasty and it was across... More

The restaurant has good localisation as close to the railway station; they make own pasta and you can see it from the table; the waintress showed me raviolli I was going to eat just before they started boiling it, she also showed me the mushrooms that were inside. The wine was of very good price. What dissapointed us though was... More

This was a good experience. Daria , the host, was friendly and showed us the homemade food before cooking. The food was tasty. The interior needs a brush up, but give it a chance :-)

Abstract from the decor, and you're in for a wonderfull experience. Home made Italian food at its best. Ravioli with ricotta and spinache combined with wonderfull porcini mushrooms, veal escalope with porcini, it all tasted wonderfull. Would definitely recommend this place. Nice to know: it's not possible to pay with card, only cash excepted.

Best food in Italy and we've been around. Don't be fooled by the simple looking interior, just walk in and let the lovely lady take care of you, bring you choices and recommendations. During our week in la spezia and lerici we ate here 5 of 7 nights. Try it! And don't forget to try the sauté of mussles

We were staying close to this very good restaurants, and it was a very good choice to take dinner here every night. Daria was the perfect waitress and she gave us great meal. Like, we promised her, I say ”WE Say hi to you, Daria! ” From Romania, Daria and Giovanna and their parents! Will came back for sure!

We were staying just opposite and were quite tired after an excellent day visiting cinque terre. so decided to take our chances with a restaurant that looked fairly average from the outside. Wow. We just went with the dishes of the day but the seafood spaghetti was quite simply the best we've ever had. Veal mains were outstanding too. We... More
