Really enjoyed the dishes we ate at this restaurant, two reasonably priced pastas given the location and potential other options. Good customer service too, friendly staff.

We went with friends, adults and children . The seafood was excellent and I would recommend the mixed starter platter to share ( we had 2 between 7 - kids not so keen so plenty to go round). Good service and sitting on the quay you is a sight to behold!

service was friendly, prices were lower than the other restaurants in the area ( we compared from the listed menus). Food was fine enough, nothing special. But if price is what you want, then go here

They had the freshest fish we had in Italy on this trip. The owner and his wife were darling. We loved our experience there.

Lovely place in the harbour/ piazza with top service without being intrusive and seafood to die for. Let´s be honest. You eat very well in Italy and you are seldom disappointed. This time in Liguria I often found something little missing at many of the places but this was not the case att Marinaio. Cozze and frutti di mare were... More

I travel regularly and the Branzino in the lemon white wine sauce was amazing. I started with a pasta dish that was perfectly cooked. Their wine list was excellent and the Jermann Chardonnay was exquisite.

My wife lived in Italy for 11 years and subsequently speaks the language excessively well and has dined at hundreds of restaurants in the country. She commented that this was the first time she had ever encountered the different layer of service that is provided to locals compared to tourists. We sat restaurant front and loved the harbour views but... More

We arrived in the pouring rain and found this little restaurant where we had an excellent lunch inside in the dry. Went back a couple of evenings later when it was sunny and sat outside, again food was great as was wine. Service friendly and helpful.
