Excellent food

No menu, but the chef himself comes out to explain the foods. You pick a few options and then a variety of dishes come to you one by one. Excellent experience. Exceeded expectations because so many little dishes of a variety of foods came out; it was exciting every time another one showed up.

We had 3 nights in La Spezia and enjoyed dinner at this restaurant every night. If you enjoy seafood this is the place to go. The 7 tapper entree is the best you will experience, different every night! The owner chef interacts with the customers, prices are good and vino is No 1. Sea Bass is hIghly recommended.

I promised my wife I would eat whatever she ordered. Without a menu, we sat and waited for the waiter to bring out each dish. The first seafood dish included squid, octopus , mussels, and anchovies. The following dishes were outstanding and the owner very friendly.

We visited the restaurant based on the reviews on here. We walked in when it opened in the evening and asked if we could get a table later, and the owner told us it was fine. So we got there around 8 to eat and the place was half full. We were showed to our table and by the time... More

What can I say? I normally don't go back to the same restaurant twice when I am travelling. I eat wherever I end up. However, this is the first time I have made an excuse to go back to the same restaurant. We went twice. Entrees were the same and it was great both times. Entree consists of small seafood... More

My friend and I went to this restaurant twice while on a long weekend in La Spezia. Reservations are a must if dining on Fri/Sat/Sun. It is a small place, with outdoor seating. The owner and his staff were very attentive. There is no written menu. The owner will tell you the choices for appetizers, first dish, main dish and... More

We arrive very late and even though the owner was super nice. No menu just his suggestions and everything was surprisingly good. Dish after dish with a super fair price in the end. I totally recommend this place.

We were suggested about this place by our hotel staff. We went there, but the place was too busy and couldn't find a table. So we made a reservation for the next day, since we thought the place was packed for a reason. We were not disappointed. The owner gave us two or three choices without any menu. From then... More
