As mentioned in our parallel review for the Hotel Relais San Rocco, our experience at Kontiki was amazing: gorgeous views (ask for a table in the front right corner, you can see Portofino in the background!); the tasting menu was reasonably priced, fresh, and tasty. The owner and staff were exceptional--it was a lively exchange between broken Italian & broken... More

After a lovely 10min drive up one of italy's most twisted SS roads the hotel/restaurant sign is hard to miss. On arrival (April '11) the outside wasn't all that inviting but don't let that put you off. Once you find the entrance, inside is very welcoming especially the owner/host. The food was good on the night we were there but... More

Small dining room perched atop the hillside 2000 feet over sea level with a view of the two bays and towns: Sestri Levante to the right and Riva Trigoso to the left. The dusk view alone is worth the price! The food is strictly Ligurian fare, cleanly done from down to earth ingredients and traditional recipes. Wines are unknown local... More

Took a taxi up to the Kontiki and although the views were wonderful not worth the trip. Welcome very professional and well served throughout. However although the starters were good but a main course of tuna in sesame seeds was inedible, the fish was not cooked and was quite unpleasant. in fairness they offered a replacement immediately and also a...

When we arrived at the Kontiki we were led to the patio area where we had some wine and hors d'oeuvres. It was a great spot for socializing and admiring the wonderful view of Sestri Levante. Upon entering the restaurant we noticed the beautiful Italian modern furniture that was a perfect compliment to the spectacular view. The attention to detail... More
