I finally chose for the "cappon magro", that was absolutely fantastic. It is a sort of social-cultural food that tells the story... read more

The food at the Bellavista was very tasty and the service was personal and attentive. Reserve if you go in the evening (only open Thursday to Sunday) , show up early for linch to be sure and get a seat.

We experienced several restaurants in La Spezia and the Trattoria Bellavista was certainly "up there" Very personal atmosphere, great service and absolutely wonderful food. We went for lunch and were the only non-locals. Always a good sign! Highly recommended.

My partner and I were looking for a place to eat and came across this lovely little restaurant. We were immediately made comfortable, the waiters explained each item on the menu in English, of which we were extremely grateful. The food was simple but wonderful. I highly recommend it.

Again off the main route and the restaurant was empty ... Starters of fish and calamari. The fish being the better of the two ... The pasta calamari... More

This place was a surprise, from the name you'd think it would be your standard fare but the owners have made a real effort to make it stand out. The food was amazing the service was great I'm hoping the chief will email me his recipe the Rabbit ragu I loved it, and the Panna Cotta wow.

This is a family running restaurant, with no real menu book but only a piece of paper printed menu with few choices that changes everyday. However you wont't regret it! We took a octopus salad to share with 4 people as entry that was just so....Delicious! Yummy! Moreover, the cook even prepared 4 individual small plates for us which was... More
