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.

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
