please stay away from this place! Awfully cooked food. All smells the same: oily smoke fragrance.... they can't even cook potatoes. So we refused to pay the full price and had quite a discussion there. Tasteless without fantasy and passion. The restaurant is usually empty anyway. Now we know why!

One of the lesser great restaurants - the food was expensive yet still average and the restaurant was completely understaffed with us having to remind the waiter to bring us our water and wine. Overall not great.

The best meal of my week in Rapallo, well cooked and tasty, with great friendly service. Would highly recommend, just sorry I didn't try it earlier in my stay so that I could have returned.

We did not know anything about this restaurant but had seen it earlier in the day so we decided to try it later that evening and we were not disappointed, some had fish some had pasta it was all excellent, the fish was much better than any of the fish we had in the restaurants on the sea front, it...

Restaurant is close to the marina and doesn't have views. However, pleasant enough location and away from the crowds in the town itself. Service was average. Highlight was the food and the wine list. Highly recommend the gnocchi. The price was really reasonable as well.

We recently enjoyed a lovely meal at this restaurant whilst staying in Rapallo. Food was very good, along with great wine and perfect service. It's a little away from the centre of Rapallo, directly below the Excelsior Palace Hotel, but well worth a visit - especially if you want to escape the crowds.

Nice space, food OK, cool/indifferent service, but we are in northern Italy and we are English! Fully expected the maritime theme of portholes and rope, however really puzzled by the gas mask lurking in the liquor trolley and the huge photographs of World War Two soldiers and weapons of war!

Nice restaurant offering quality food. A modern twist on traditional food. OK service, nothing to praise or complain about. There is a Second World War theme going on at the restaurant as there are lots of pictures of soldiers and aircraft on the walls. OK location, nothing to see of the harbour, just a service road. Didn't rock my boat,... More

100% recommend this restaurant!! Wonderful service and even better food. Seafood is very fresh. As the owner says, "Excellent cooking is hard work, and we are willing to work." (Try the Gnocci!)
