Try the gnocchi

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!)

this restaurant is in the marina area - and specialises in seafood - the spaghetti and the Milanese are also worth trying

We arrived around 7:30PM and there was only one other table of 4 there. Location would be better if your view was of the water and marina instead of boats awaiting repairs, which blocked the view of the water and marina. Service was attentive, but once more people arrived, it got slow. Only Luca and one waitress for entire restaurant.... More

This looks like a super expensive place because of where it is located but it was not. The food was delicious and the service was super good. The pistachio ice cream unbelievable. Great fish as well.

The location inside the yacht marina, the restaurant decor, and table service were very good. The weak point was the food. I had some seafood gnocchi---the frozen seafood had been reheated--and some tasteless mixed appetizers. With a better cook it could become a good restaurant.
