Delicious food and affordable prices

We visited this gem with our three young children early in the month of December. We were able to order many small plates and share without also having a large bill. The atmosphere was enjoyable and there was even a small ice rink set up in the square for our children to enjoy before dinner... read more

Ate lunch here twice while in Chiavari. Located in the historical center with indoor and outdoor seating. Mostly locals, the food is very reasonable price. The menu changes somewhat daily. Look at the daily special everyone is ordering and get that. The rabbit was excellent.

Vittorio trattoria is a small gem in the Historic Town of Chiavari. Located in the city center in an area with many stores of all sorts, was very busy every evening with couples, families and friends meeting after work. The very affordable prices allowed you to try more than one appetizer or indulge in primi or secondo piati. Our server... More

Nice restaurant with delicious food. Plates are small and tastefull, which makes you choose several. Also very good for kids, they love it! Came back after several years, and still as good as I remembered!

Great little traditional restaurant with inexpensive food. We are veggies and the waitress took the time to help us figure out what we could have. In the end we just pointed blindly at the options and really enjoyed what we had. Two pasta first plates, second plates were two different pies. One spinach and one a sort of quiche. And... More

This restaurant was recommended to us by locals. You can find very cheap food from Italy, in particular the local specialty called 'La Farinata' which is a kind of pancake made of chickpea and is worth trying. Don't expect very good food (more expensive restaurants with fine food can be found closer to the coast) but you will get something... More

No haute cuisine, but very popular place with traditional dishes at very reasonable prices, in a nice location. And a traditional boss, commanding his staff, and sometimes his customers.... Bear with it - Food is good and staff work hard....
