Good food and good price for the family

Here you eat the authentiq food of the region in a setting not formal and very friendly. No reservations, so yes there can be a time of waiting for a table, but never too long for the experience and the low price. Good for the family.

Be sure to come on time. Later at night queues are forming outside. This little place is known for the farinata: Round bakes of chickpeas. We had two of these as a starter, some bruschetta and then fried anchovy and a pizza. Everything tasted delicious, especially the farinata. We were served efficiently and with kindness. Many Italians around us. I... More

We were recommended this place by our hotelier and we arrived early to ensure we got a table. We were not disappointed. This restaurant is vibrant and food is served quickly - it's definitely a fun place to eat but not a quiet fine-dining affair:-) We tried the farinata and it was very tasty, with a number of other smaller...

We had two meals at Da Puppo in May 2014. Food was good and the value of it was great. Also the service was friendly.

We were spending the day with our Italian friends and their two boys, and had an excursion planned to see the medieval town of Albenga along with the exceptional caves or grottos a few miles away. They told us about farinata, the very simple but hard to cook perfectly dish of the area, and said that this restaurant was the... More

In summer there are long queues outside. This establishment is a local favourite and is considered value. I have been going for years. On a recent visit however I noticed that the quality of the food had crashed. Oily, smothred in bread crumbs, tasteless, not nicely presented. There is only one reason to go to Puppo and that is for... More

Be early because the line of guests around 8 pm is can not be discribed. Try the Fratinata. Fantastic.

You know you are probably in for a good meal when the locals are lined up (more milling around) fifteen minutes before opening time. At 1230, more or less, the door was opened, and a dozen and a half people, with anticipatory smiles on their faces, squeezed gently through the narrow door. The restaurant was soon filled. More people came,... More

If you have never had farinata, then this is the place for this wonderfully simple dish. Beware, this place is super popular with locals and Italians who read Trip Advisor and it is also small with tables crammed into what space they have. So either go early, or go late. Their typical plates of the area are the best and... More
