excellent food, service and location

I was afraid that this would be a tourist trap because of its perfect location right at the port. I am glad to say that I was wrong. The seafood based menu had way more than the typical "linguine with clams" (although they were there too), with reasonable prices and one of the most knowledgeable... read more

Great atmosphere, fabulous food, friendly service a must try spot. We had delicious antipasti and pasta, some of the best we had this summer. Classic trenette were top but the house seafood pasta was amazing. Very highly recommended. Best to book. Location is superb by the harbour side but parking is tricky.

Our b&b manager recommended this place. They had a beautiful place set up for us including a water fish for our dog! Service was professional and there when we needed them. Local Ligurian wine went great with the seafood dishes. Prices were reasonable and the entire experience was quite pleasant. Great view and people watching. A great choice for the... More

This restaurant is perfectly located in the beautiful fishing port... After the apèritif, we tooked both first the spaghetti with baby squids (superb) and a selection of fish (catches of the day) afterwards (delicious) followed by the creme Catalan.. As wine a very good local Ligurian red wine... Total price = € 126 A visit more than worth...

We were not sure whether to try Vento Ariel because some people appeared not to have enjoyed the experience. We were very pleased we did. The fish was fresh, the house octopus pate unique and the sevice was friendly and efficient.

I am a bit perturbed that, at the time of writing, this delightful restaurant has slipped down to No 14 in the Camogli ratings. I hope by the time you read this, it will be firmly established in the top 5 again! The truth is, Vento Ariel is head and shoulders above most of the competition in Camogli. Yes, it's... More

was with a large team after a meeting and we went hunting for a place to eat. The original suggestion was closed when we got there so backtracked to hotel and found this place. We were 13 and the resto held maybe 20. So we rearranged the place to get seated, owner very welcoming. He made suggestions for starter and... More

We were here with my wife's parents and our daughter: when we first came in the place was empty, but soon people started to come in after us... so, we were lucky, since the restaurant is cozy and small, and we would have not found a table. The staff was very friendly from the beginning: the owner Davide suggested some... More

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.
