Good, not great

So, what are you paying for? Views? Yes, spectacular. Service? Sure, very good and attentive without being overbearing. Food? Plenty of it, but it's not the star. Yet there was no reason for it not to be. We found about every second course to be noteworthy. Two of the four in our party... read more

First off, this restaurant has a fantastic view. However the service was overbearing and the food average for the price and the trip advisor rating. The mullet starter was wrapped in full pastry accompanied by crispy asparagus and a small amount of jus which was not enough to avoid the overall dryness of the dish. The best starter which was...

We stayed at the Hotel Dei Castelli and dined in the restaurant for breakfast and evening dinner. The staff were brilliant, service was first class, all silver service, the setting overlooking the bay is amazing, so romantic and the food was amazing. We had a complimentary glass of Prosecco on arrival, very good wine during the meal and our meal... More

Dined in the evening with 30 of our best friends visiting the area. Fantastic food & service. Impeccable wine selections. Saved this one for our farewell evening dinner! Beautiful view of the emerald green bay.

Where to start. You are met by friendly staff who show you to a beautifully set table looking out over the bay. While you look through the menu you are give a drink and nibbles. The food, when it came, was delicious. It was beautifully presented and tasty. A sweet white wine was given with the desert and coffee was... More

As a family the waiters were helpful, cool and extremely friendly. They were totally flexible regarding preparation of meals for dinner for the boys. We spent three nights at the hotel. We ate the first and the third evening in this restaurant since the food was just great, delicious -- and "something not found easily elsewhere". We recommend to take... More

The view was fantastic, the food the same. The staff attentive and pleasant. It deserves it's TA rating (#1 when we went there). Try the terrace for lunch. The elevator from/to the marina makes easy to reach from Sestri Levante downtown.

We were 2 couples vacationing in Sestri Levante and had a most memorable meal at this restaurant. The restaurant is charming in an old castle and the grounds are breathtaking. Our meal was exquisite and actually fairly reasonable considering what we were expecting. I would definitely go back and highly recommend this dining experience.
