Description: Il locale, meritatamente rinomato, si dispone su due aree: uno spazioso salone interno, con vivaio di aragoste, vetrate ed eleganti arredi, l'altra direttamente sul mare, ombreggiata ed immersa nel giardino, in prossimita delle piscine. I titolari Claudio e Pervinca sanno fondere simpatia e professionalita, accolgono e seguono in modo accattivante e discreto i clienti. Nulla e lasciato al caso o preparato in serie: dal pane fatto in casa alle appetitose entrees, ai primi piatti di pasta casereccia, quasi "disegnati" in delicati piatti dalle forme originali ed armoniose. Ma, insieme a crostacei e frutti di mare, il pesce (sempre rigorosamente fresco, di pregio, assortito e nostrano, tranne ovviamente le ostriche!) e protagonista delle varie prelibatezze che vengono ogni volta preparate espressamente con cura e creativita da un'affiatata ed organizzata equipe. Il servizio ai tavoli e condotto da personale esperto e garbato che sa orientare anche la clientela piu esigente nella scelta (per altro ampia e davvero apprezzabile) dei vini e dei dessert.La struttura offre inoltre la possibilita di degustare Sushi preparato con il pesce nostrano .

Good atmosphere and good food, but totally overpriced and unfriendly staff. There seems to be a menu for a more reasonable price (34 euro), but it is not mentionned anywhere.

Magnificent and elegant with excellent food and wines but out of any reasonable choice for price. We are not at Noma in Copenhagen but they apply almost the same price. Service and maitre assistance not in compliance with suggested atmosphere!!!!

The restaurant, part of the Mare Hotel in Savona is definitely worth a visit. The menu is wonderful and ready menus are very, very interesting. Winelist contains little gems at an affordable price. The service is first class and having a toddler with us did not bother the staff, to the contrary they were even nicer!

This wonderful restaurants is teamed up with the Hotel de Mare. The hotel is a very classical "beach" resort, no more but with a private parking ( 7€). The restaurant is a must believe me. The proposed food is excellent and dish is very well prepared , not only sophisticated but with real taste. Every plate looks like a picture... More

Excellent seafood restaurant with a variety of freshly prepared dishes. The raw seafood platter is a delight! (as everything else). We had the tasting menu with included also red snapper pasta as well as fresh lobster and enjoyed every bite! Expect to pay a bit more than usual but well worth it. Guests from the hotel can enjoy a more... More

Locals love it. It is considered to be one of the best restaurants in Savona. I have been 3 times and have never been very impressed with the food there...Typical Ligurian dishes, fish, meat...They have different ambiance rooms. I always had dinner upstairs and it reminds me of restaurants in Bergen county, NJ, in the 80s. Downstairs however, they made... More
