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.

Ristorante dei Castelli delivers top quality food in a unique location overlooking the see direction Portofino. Although the menu is confusing - it seems the chef wants to impress guests with innovative dishes, just ask for the Italian classic dishes, like spaghetti alle vongole, trofie al pesto, or pesce al sale (fish in salt crust). They cook them all and... More

on our tour. The restaurant sits atop a promontory overlooking the bays of Sestri Levante. The dining room as huge picture windows overlooking the town. It was a very pretty setting. But even better was the wonderful meal and great service. The meal consisted of: Very good white & red wines. Pasta course that tasted like a light pesto sauce,... More

On a lunchtime whim, we took the lift through the cliff to the Castle and, even though there were two weddings in progress, the staff were pleased to show us to the outside eating area where we enjoyed a simple but excellent spaghetti & vongole dish overlooking the marina. I would imagine that the restaurant is fantastic for a full... More

These three things are not always easy to come by, but our experience certainly combined each one. We took a bit of a stab in the dark and were not disappointed. From the rather unusual entrance through a red carpeted rock tunnel and then the elevator, to the stunning views from the restaurant terrace. Service was very attentive from the... More

BIG (really :) and tasty portions, especially a selection of local fish as antipasti, which could easily be enough if you are not starving. Try marinated cold fish cubes - unforgettable. Delicious beef made with wine, and other meals. Combine it with stunning views and very courteous and efficient service, and you get the "definitely recommended" place.

We stayed at the hotel and thought it would be convenient to eat at the restuarant. We would have had a much better meal if we had went into the city. We should have known considering how easy it was to make the reservation and the fact that the restuant only had a couple other dinners. The worst was the... More
