We shared an antipasti between two which was good but then the first course pasta dishes were very average. The service was very slow and the waitress wasn't very friendly. Would not return.

A few days ago while travelling through Italy we have been in this excellent restaurant! They mainly serve fish and as there was no menu card, we ordered what the Chef proposed, and this was quite a surprise! As starters we received 7 different fish dishes, all excellent and of high quality. Same for the main dish. Just to say... More

My friend and I came here for our first night in La Spezia. We had incredible antipasti consisting of 7 different dishes which were all cooked beautifully and using incredibly fresh ingredients. Our primi, secondi and dessert followed in the exact same way. The wine that they recommended was delicious and the service was perfect, they came to our table... More

The meal we had at this restaurant was fabulous. The 7 course appetizer set is not to be missed. The prawn dish was excellent. The other dishes were also very good. We had 2 different types of pasta and they were both good. The chef was friendly and service was good. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you are... More

This restaurant is an absolute gem. The owner is passionate about the food and service he provides, and he made sure we had a fantastic all-round experience. The restaurant specialises in fresh fish, and we both opted for the delicious sea food risotto. The appetisers, wine and limoncello were equally good, and the atmosphere and service made it a very...

This small restaurant in la Spezia has no menu, specializes in seafood and was a little piece of heaven. I had pasta with squid and olives, it didn't simply melt in the mouth it melted my body! My husband had an enormous plate of mussels in a white wine and lemon broth. The desserts were a surprise as the waiter... More

We were welcomed by the very friendly owner who moved a table outside for us. As we already had splurged on anti-pasta we had just two plates (shared with two). The eight appetizers, which where actually nine very tasty bites and the seafood spaghetti. Both tasted great. And then we shared a dessert. Total bill including drinks was 42 Euro.
