Upscale but not intimidating, view to die for

The long-established Hotel Vis-a-Vis stands on a hill above Sestri Levante, with a panoramic view (360 degrees) of some of the finest scenery on the Riviera del Levante, that part of the very beautiful coast between Genoa and Tuscany. The hotel and its restaurant are a closely-guarded secret. On... read more

we decided to go for the restaurant spontaneously the night we arrived at hotel vis a vis. When entering the restaurant we didn't feel it was a friendly welcome, maybe because we didn't reserve. We were shown the local menu but not actually the tasting or other menus that people have been raving about. All in all we didn't feel... More

After hopping around the Italian Riviera for a week, visiting the lovely towns of Vernazzo, Portofino, Rapallo, Zoagli and Santa Marguerita Liguria, we stumbled upon this restaurant when a woman we met on the street gave us the wrong directions to another restaurant. It is in a beautiful hotel called Vis a Vis. To enter, you walk up a long,... More

We stayed at the hotel on e night and decided to have both lunch and dinner here. Lunch was Spagetthi Frutti di Mare for 20 Euro in came a rather small portion but tasted well. I had the Bresaola which was normal. Dinner was in the same Beautiful restaurant with Fish and Beef for me. All tasted fine.

We stayed at the Vis a Vis for 2 nights and ate at the Olimpo restaurant on both nights. we chose fish on both evenings and we were not too disappointed. The dessert was buffet style with plenty of choice. The wine list was of a good size with many local wines at a fair price. The service was very... More

My wife and I had two great meals at this restaurant. The service couldn't have been better (very attentive and friendly, without being overbearing) and the view really is incredible if you reserve a window table as we did. The food was also very good, the highlight probably being the catch of the day which was cooked on the bone,... More

Staff were very attentive and knowledgeable. A set menu was available for forty euros which was good value, and there is an a la carte menu. For our meal whole fresh seabass and sea bream were offered. One customer had hers cooked in salt but you might need to request this as it did not seem to be on the... More

Located on top of the Vis a Vis Hotel, this is one of the restaurant you and your friends will remember. Food, view, service and atmosphere are excellent. Price are high but not over the top. In any case it is worthed, especially if you take a lovely lady with you. Orata alla ligure is a must.
