Fantastic location by the seaside but the service was neither happy nor helpful. Unfortunately the food was a big disappointment. Except for a delicious grilled squid it was overcooked, bland and in general prepared without the high standard and care we expect from the Italian cuisine.

We have just come from the Ristorante Babette which I situated right at the albenga beach with a wonderful view over the sea. The service was really perfect!

We loved the old Babette, on a central street in Albenga. It was elegant and had almost a French sensibility with regard to decoration, presentation and intimate service.

A lovely setting on the seafront,we chose the tasting menu of 4 courses with coffee and little pastries. Could not fault anything.....portions were generous without being overwhelming. The chef introduced himself at beginning of meal:he was charming as were all The staff.I would certainly recommend this restaurant for an excellent evening.

We decided to stop for lunch on our way from Genoa to Monaco and picked up the Michelin red guide for Italy to look for somewhere suitable. We identified Albenga as a possibility and like the look of the listing for Babette, so we booked a table and found it just outside the old medieval heart of the town. It... More

Not more than three dozen people can be seated at the nine tables in this charming store front restaurant in the center of Albenga. The lemon yellow dining room is beautifully decorated with many nice touches; lovely colorful curtains depicting drapery tassels in cheery orange, blue, yellow and green; a few bouquets of flowers; crisp white linens, formal silver and...
