We ate here because the other restaurant close to the marina was closed. The food was delicious and freshly cooked. The waiter was attentive and helpful. The scenery was limited but all in all a lovely place to eat.

The place is nice and relaxing, the owner/chef Paolo is an institution of the area and can serve you one of the best meal you ever had, just ask him to prepare what he think is the best choice of the day , relax and enjoy.....thanks Paolo.

While many, perhaps all, of the locals in the restaurant seemed to be enjoying themselves, the place just didn't do it for me. I felt the food was underseasoned and there was really nothing unique about its offerings.

Food, lovely service, great location in Le Grazie. Try the Pesce alla Ligure, otherwise also known as Pesce all'Isolana. Their mushrooms are amazing!

If you want to stop before Portovenere, skip the parking-hunt and enjoy dinner in a calm restaurant, this is the right place. We went a few times over the years with friends, the majority of our dinners have been good. Personnel is friendly, ask them for recommendation on the fish of the day!
