Description: VIVIANA SPADA per Ponente Oggi. Diano Marina, con Luca ePaolo è sempre "Sapore di sale" Luca Ferrari e Paolo Tranchida sono i due ‘temerari’ soci che, in questi tempi di chiari di luna, lo scorso 6 ottobre hanno avuto l’ardire di aprire a Diano Marina un nuovo ristorante che da subito ha suscitato interesse e apprezzamento non solo da parte dei residenti ma anche di molti turisti italiani e stranieri che ne hanno già gustato le pizze e le specialità culinarie lasciando nei siti specializzati commenti entusiastici. ‘Sapore di sale’, questo il nome del locale, si trova in via Garibaldi al ventidue, strada meglio nota come Aurelia, in invidiabile posizione fronte mare; dal suo interno, infatti, si può godere del panorama di passeggiata e orizzonte.Ciò che colpisce, oltre all’aspetto del locale, è, infatti, anche la cura del cliente e del servizio offerto: cordialità e sorrisi in ingresso e uscita; bibite in bottiglietta di vetro; la premura di scrivere sulla tovaglietta di carta il numero della pizza ordinata a buona memoria dell’avventore; menu e carta dei vini presentati in chiari caratteri ed eleganti e originalissimi ‘contenitori’ stile pergamena; una grande lavagna dove, quotidianamente, lo chef compila la lista dei manicaretti fuori menu (o del giorno), con l’indicazione dei relativi prezzi (così chi ordina non avrà sorprese al momento del conto…)… e molto altro ancora.Il giovane chef Fabio Maiano (ha solo ventinove anni) proviene dalla scuola di cucina ‘stellata’ del Vescovado di Noli e non delude certo la clientela di ‘Sapore di sale’. Chi assaggia, ritorna La domanda sorge spontanea: ma dopo, il futuro che prevede? Sapore di mare e Sapore di te? Paolo effettivamente risponde divertito: “In effetti, le opzioni sono tre. A breve ci allargheremo qui nel dehor sulla passeggiata proponendo anche un menu di brasserie… e poi speriamo di crescere ancora. A oggi non abbiamo fatto nessun tipo di pubblicità e solamente con il ‘passaparola’ lavoriamo tanto e bene… faremo del nostro meglio per mantenere alto il nostro profilo”.Cibi e vini (oltre cinquanta alla carta, almeno un paio per ogni regione) esclusivamente italiani e di qualità, ma la più simpatica e divertente peculiarità è la lista delle pizze; oltre alle ‘classiche’, le ‘speciali’ sono contraddistinte, oltre che da un numero identificativo per il pizzaiolo, di nomi rispondenti alle tante borgate del golfo dianese. Troviamo quindi: Borganzo, Moltedo, Trinità, San Pietro, Santa Lucia, Gorleri, e via dicendo. Gli ingredienti e gli accostamenti a volte decisamente originali con l’utilizzo di crema di zucca abbinata a gorgonzola, radicchio e pancetta piuttosto che rucola, salame marchigiano con pomodori di Pachino o ancora con la freschissima burrata proveniente direttamente da Andria. Che dire? Ai buongustai non resta che.. provare per credere. Bon appetit!

We had a superb meal at sapore di sale. The zuppa di cozze was fantastic, in fact one of the best Ive ever had tried. The other dishes was almost equally good. Also a nice environment and friendly staff.

Every time we go back to Diano Marina we enjoy having dinner here. It was recommended to us from a local as we were looking for a good pizzeria, and it was definitely a good tip. It is a stylish place, with good food and good service. I am Italian and I found the pizza there very good (it is... More

The Sapore di Sale is a nice restaurant in the beachside town of Diana Marina, where we also had some not so nice food experiences (a pizzeria using artificial cheese in the middle of Italy, brrrr...). We had a good dinner at reasonable prices, found the atmosphere pleasant and the staff helpful. Not the most memorable evening of all times,... More

This place has a great atmosphere and the food is pretty good. It's really nice to have a new, modern restaurant in town (we own a home here and come often). It is great for a date or aperitivi, as opposed to so many family-friendly restaurants in town. We did have to catch a waiter on a couple occasions (waiting... More

We went for a dinner to try this unusual restaurant in front of the beach of Diano Marina. The white interior with lots of marine and cooking details is surprisingly nice and different to all the other locations in Diano. The team is young and seemed to be quite enthusiastic in the beginning of this evening. The antipasti, cozze (10... More

We sat down and were really looking forward to our meal. The other tables were empty and began filling up we received menus and thats all, others that arrived after us had their order taken and received drinks. We felt ignored and as we got up to leave two waiters that were nearby didn't even pass a glance at us.... More

This is clearly the fashionable place to eat.It is run by a bunchof very enthusiastic young people who have opened a section with tables over by the seafront. this looks lovely but they are currently having to carry all the food across the main Via Aurelia-which isn't going to do much for the food quality or their personal safety.

For some reason this restaurant is listed twice on TA, so i've reviewed against the listin with the highest number of reviews. I understand the restaurant opened last October (2011), and you can see this as the decor is very modern and clean. Since i was very busy chatting didn't really browse the menu casually, but i was aware that... More
