A wine list to die for

Small restaurant located in city center, with a vast wine list, covering all major regions of Italy. The kitchen isn't bad either, and the meat was exceptional well cooked. It helps with a little Italian, but english works in worst case.

We were very disappointed. The Fish soup didn't have a single piece of fish in it. Pasta was ok. The Steak (medium ordered) was burnt black outside and completly raw inside. Mashed potatos were allright. According to our travel guide should the Restaurant owned by a friendly, happy couple (Man in the Restaurant, wife in the kitchen). We think both... More

I read a lot of positive reviews of this place and decided to give it a chance. I took the spaghetti with anchovies, portion was really small and not delicious. I was hungry after my dinner. My friend took a fish, it was ok,but again too small. Prices are too high for food. Wine was nice though.

Very nice and authentic. No English menu, that is how authentic it is. Super service. If you want local, this could be an excellent choise

Great food and ambiance and a welcoming host. I can't honestly say exactly what I had because I joined an Italian lady who was a frequent visitor and I invited her to order for me. A first course of a fried anchovie type fish with zucchini blossoms and a second pasta course. It was excellent. They recommended a wine to... More

I really liked this restaurant. Lovely food and a great wine list. A welcoming host. I was taken there by a resident of Chiavari. I wanted to go back again to taste all the other wonders on the menu. One day I shall!

Very simple: if you're ever in Chiavari, you cannot miss this! We walked in expecting your average Ligurian trattoria and came out satiated and smiling. The sformato and baccala mantecato were worthy of white tablecloth restaurants, the pasta con salsicce and broiled fish were up there with the best. Not to mention the amazing homemade desserts. What a meal! Have... More

Twice we ate in this restaurant. The first time with a group of friends in the evening, and the second time my husband and me at noon. The food is prepared with care. A wide selection of wines. The restaurant is small but it has a very unique decoration, actually is a mixed but well set. The staff/owners are friendly... More

What with excellent selection of wines, which the friendly staff can give expert advise on, and imaginative and tasty food which isn't even that expensive, this gem of a place has to be the best place in chiavari to eat and drink
