Lovely location at the end of the promenade, great decor, attentive waiters and good food. Returned the following evening for dinner but unfortunately was fully booked and I can appreciate why, our loss, we should have booked a table.

Although there had been no English review of the restaurant for some time, we had stopped there for a cocktail before dinner on several previous occasions and thought it looked a good spot for a celebration and had great views over the sea towards Portofino. Hown right we were. Our dinner last night was sensational - delicious and imaginitive food... More

This was an experience! I had read reviews on this restaurant and wanted to try it while in Liguria. We had found the restaurant very quickly. We were the only diners there for quite a while but we wanted to dine early. We are a chef's nightmare, vegetarians. It didn't phase this place! The food is divine. When it arrived... More

Celebrating being in Italy with special Italian friends, and fortunately it was British Mother's Day, our friends reserved a table for Sunday lunch. The food, and service was outstanding, the decor very traditional in keeping with the nautical theme of Lord Horatio Nelson and his ships. Highly recommend reserving a table if visiting nearby Portofino or Santa Margherita Ligure You... More

It is a kind of a luxury place-best plates and services, but the food is fusion, like a little portion on the big plate, if you like this style-it is for you.

This fine restaurant has been around since 1969, just months after my first visit to the region courtesy of the U.S. Navy. While we have been returning to Liguria for 28 years, and for the past 20 several times a year, this was our first visit to the Lord Nelson. It won't be our last! There is a lot that... More

Quality of the food, service and wine selection is top. You have to be ready to pay for it, though. For 2 little appetizer and 1 primo piatto we paied 150 EUR in two people. I still find it quite expensive for the atmosphere itself, even if I say it again: quality of the food is really worth it. Waiters... More

When it comes to great, high class food in the city of Chiavari there is only one choice for me: Lord Nelson. Since the very beginning when the owner started the business the quality of the food and wine has always been the focus. Today, with an immense cantina (ask the owner to show it to you, it's worthy..) and... More
