Good food, good service

I visit La Spezia often (for work) and I can say that me and my collegues have found this restaurant to be one of the "very good" ones in this nice town. Great variety of "bruschette", the meat as well as the veggies are well prepared and served. About the meat, they have kind of a special menu... read more

The place is small and cosy. The staff was welcoming and helpful in a very good English. They had a kids menu and it was served within minutes. The rest of the food was simple and well done. Just what you need when on a trip. We are glad we came across this place!

very cozy atmosphere, tables that are not too close to each other, very fine food, great desserts, reasonable price ... and very important: I forgot my camera on the back of the chair and the waitress was stored it and I have got back the next day. Thank you TdA!

We went there on the evening. When we got our table we had to wait 15 min to order the drinks. We ordered different dishes and after we finished our meals they came and appologized for not giving us any bread. The meat was delicious but for the rest i would not recommend this restaurant.

We had a great evening there with realky good food. The cheese platter was fantastic, meat perfectly grilled, vine excellent... Try one of the bruschettas, they are one of the specialities in this restaurant. Service was friendly , helpful and quick but they had some problems with the bill and forgot some of our stuff. So better check your bill.... More

We took pretty basic dishes, orechiette con pesto di basilico e stracchiatella, buratina con pomodori, finocchio gratinata and the taste was excellent, but the portions were very small for an italian restaurant. With 0.5l of wine and a bottle of water (34euros) the price was all right. Kind service.

Simple and authentic Ligurian cuisine at its best!!! Charming place, very friendly English and French speaking waiter, excellent meat, great choice of wine, quite cheap, in the middle of the pedestrian zone and packed with locals - I warmly recommend it! We had a delicious dinner!
