What a pleasure

We first tried it in August on our way back to France. Now that the Summer holiday are over we decided to stop by on our way to Venice. We were offered some very nice Prosseco wine upon arrival. We ordered again the "polpo" served with pesto and olives as an antipasti. Incredibly yummy ! I tried... read more

The bread was a mixture of old and fresh. The 20E. fish was such a small portion and almost tasteless. The Service was not worth mentioning it. All in all it is hard to understand why someone recommends this place at all.

We had a family dinner at the restaurant. We had mixed grilled fish and mixed deep-fried fish. Both tasted terrible. We have eaten in dozens of restaurants in Liguria and Cote D'Azur. Don't go there! Kids liked their pasta though. Waste of your money.

But far from... really... More

5 years ago, we went to Osteria Vico del Rame, and we where very pleased. Our expectations were high as we went to the restaurant this time, but we got a bit disappointed. The level was not as high as last time or as we remembered it. The food was okay, not fantastic, the serving fine but the prices were... More

I ate there just once and I won't be back because having dinner there was worse than eating at my grandmother's house! The food was not well cooked and not very good, so too expensive for a service like that!!

We had a very nice dinner just few days ago. The restaurant is located in the center of Diano Marina town, on the main street. The place was small but very nice and warm, and the people working there were very pleasant and professional. The food was good. We had a very good and large plate of linguine with seafood.... More

We ate here looking forward to the seafood, but to be honest it wasn't that great. We had fish for both courses and some of it was a little over cooked, although very well presented. We spent over 100 Euros including wine and I think at that price it did fall a little short of what you would expect, however... More

Great food, great ingrediënts. Real Italian atmosphere. Nice outside terrace. Friendly staff. The wines are good and not expensive but the food is overpriced for an Osteria. It is obviously a place where locals eat so one can be sure that the quality is OK.
