Il Chiasso serves amazing food, reinterpreting classic local dishes in a sophisticated way with attention to detail and fantastic quality produce. The setting among the 'chiassi' of Capoliveri is amazing and this is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

That is the challenge of every good place, to keep up to expectations. Especially in summertime with all the tourists and no need to worry if you're place is full. The food was good (squid & risotto), wine OK, service OK, but nothing special. I'd like to feel that you're very welcome and that they will do everything possible to... More

We have been to this restaurant at tuesday 21st of august. We made a reservation to sit outside at the lovely piazetta. Antipasti were not that special and the price for the quality was too high. The secondi piatti was excellent. Very tasty, we enjoyed. But the service was so bad, which I have not expected for the price. No... More

This is a great restaurant, serving local specialties so intense in taste they will leave a very long-lasting impression. The look and feel of the place are quite informal, the location is just off the tourist path, the dishes do not look overly refined. This is probably why some people may be shocked to see the higher-than-average prices. But for... More

The restaurant is located in a small street outside the piazza, so you will need to look for it a little bit. Reservation in high season is strongly recommended. They offer a selection of Italian cuisine with a very local touch, for example the sea urchin or octopus dishes. The wine list is excellent and prices are still reasonable. Do... More
