We were planning to eat at this restaurant since we were happy with the food last time we were in Camogli. We had reserved a table some days before and the staff did not indicate that there were a lot of bookings for that night. When we arrived to the restaurant, it was almost empty both inside and outside. Despised... More

If you wanna eat like an Italian go to Vento Ariel. Locals love this restaurant. Trust Davide about the food, he'll serve you the freshest seafood and offer you the best wine. We dined here twice in 3 days the food was delicious and the service was amazing.

Encouraged by reviews on tripadvisor I was hoping for a treat but instead I was really disappointed. I started with acciuge in agrodolce which was tasteless and the size of the anchovies was such that the bones were quite intrusive. My main of gemberi ala diavola was just bland. The ambience is pleasant and clearly others have had a much... More

Seems very much a locals' spot based on the convivial joking between the waitstaff and the many Italians dining around us. The trofie con pesto and vegetale alla griglia were not to be missed; they also had many fresh sea food options that were simply but nicely prepared. Good, jovial service and fun people watching of the port as you... More

This place was recommended to us... And it was disappointing. The seafood pasta was delicious, and the wind was good too, but it was expensive, there were heaps of bones in my fish for main course served with a very basic salad, and I wouldn't write home about the service. I guess we were paying for the harbour views.

My husband and I ate here on the second night of our two-night stay in Camogli. I had literally the best pasta dish of my life, spaghetti with baby squid. My main course was fresh fish "Ligurian style" with pine nuts and potato, and it was a little bland and disappointing. We also had the house white wine, a little... More

Camogli is a wonderful small seafront village, not even all that well known among seasoned travellers. It's a shame, but on the other hand, it's a good thing because too many visitors might really spoil things. You have to make a bit of a trek from the (limited) parking areas down to the seafront. But don't stop there: keep going... More

If you succeed at finding a parking space uphill and then walk down all the way to the lungomare you will get to one of the most wonderful spots of the whole Riviera Ligure. First you will hit a small bookshop called 'l'ultima spiaggia' (the last shore) where you must take a peek and buy a souvenir book. Then you... More

The food was excellent - Seafood fresh and simple - we ate 2 nights out of 3 and loved it. Great position on the Quay in the Port. Lovely friendly staff - great atmosphere and the very best Panna Cotta ever.
