Mixed feelings - great outdoor seating, comfortable with wonderful ambience. Our waiter strongly discouraged us from getting red wine since we were in Liguria, known he says for it's locally produced white wine. He brought a bottle of French Chardonnay. I said 'local?' And he returned with a bottle of 'local wine' only it happened to be from Sicily. Then... More

We stopped in La Spezia on our way from Florence to Genoa and found this place by accident while looking for somewhere for lunch. What a find. Food was delicious and the owner was friendly and attentive without being overbearing. His wine recommendation was also excellent. Would definitely go back if I'm ever in La Spezia again.

It reminded me of sitting in a private wine cellar with the owner/ Matre 'd being so attentive to his guests. There is no wine list, just bottles all over the room and you tell him what you like and he brings at least 6 bottles and tells you about all of them. We chose an amazing Merlot to go... More

This was a wonderful dining experience - we had dinner here twice in a row! The first night we ate mainly seafood mixed dishes. They cooked it all beautifully. The second evening we also tried the fillet of beef and tuna steak. The atmosphere was great. Attentive, genuine waiter who recommended lovely local wine. It's not cheap but we would... More

We just stopped by this restaurant without knowing the great reviews here on tripadvisor, and YES this shure is a great restaurant. 2 adults and 3 children aged 8-11 had an amazing meal. The kids wanted pasta, and they even provided gluten free pasta for our daughter that needs to eat gluten free. We had lobster and pasta and the... More

We went here for dinner. Everything we ordered was delicious: seafood salad, scallops on pumpkin purée, vegetable and seafood tempura, tuna bucatini, seafood risotto, seafood carbonara, local wine and dessert wine. The service let it down though as they forgot one of the mains and so one person started eating when everyone else had finished. The waiter smelt bad. I... More

Great service and food. Owner/waiter was funny and gave great local wine picks. Located close to shopping and a couple minute walk to the water.

We came across this restaurant by accident, we arrived late into La Spezia (most restaurants were closed). The owner/waiter made us feel very welcome even though he was obviously finishing up his last table for the night. Excellent service, fresh seafood and perfectly cooked steak (we like ours medium-medium/rare). So impressed with everything we came back the next night and... More

We had the most wonderful tagliolini with lobster at this place and several other delicious dishes ! The owner is a wine connaisseur and serves the most delicate wines to everyone's budget with the appropriate explanation. Very friendly and good location (on a square which is in a pedestrian area). Complimenti !
