The best Italian sea-food ever!

This restaurant has the most wonderful view overlooking the Bay of Silence with stunning skies and sparkling seas....The food was absolutely fabulous but the service so slow that we were served both of our main course ten minutes apart which was really disappointing!

Good service but surprisingly below average food. The view to the area is stunning. So should the kitchen be, too. There is more to this location.

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

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 the top floor is a terrace and bar. Immediately below, on... 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
