5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014 NEW

Anyone who visits this restaurant and fails to be taken in by the panaromic views and tasty, rustic Italian food and buckets of crisp white wine for just 20 euros per person should be on prozac. We walked from levanto up the mountain (best after 6 in the July heat) and took a window seat overlooking the countryside. Here we... More

We ran into a couple that highly recommended this place to us while travelling in Cinque Terre, and after reading all the reviews online we decided we had to go here before leaving. Worst decision we made. Coming in from Riomaggorie, we had to pay for the train out to Levanto, a round trip 40 Euro taxi ride and 40... More

Fresh pasta fatta ni casa, local wine and delicous desserts along with caring service. Just 10 minutes by car from the center of levanto

Living in Italy, it isn't difficult to find places where you eat well. But, often oil, cheese and salt are used to enhance the richness of dishes. You will feel heavy and full for hours and sometimes through the next day. Finding typical Ligurian isn't easy either. Zita's delivers a perfect experience. The simple, quality ingredients used at Zita's allow... More

We stayed in Dosso next village up the valley at the L'Antico Borgo (great place, highly recommended, avoid the crowds in Levanto). This is the only restaurant in the area. It is popular with locals and tourists. It is very basic but clean and the food is fresh and thoughtfully prepared. We met a German gentlemen who has been coming... More

Food straight out of Nonna's kitchen! Not the #1 most gourmet meal I had in Italy, but by far my favourite. Traditional, delicious fare. Delightful view over the Levanto valley- make sure you're up there for sunset. The 4 of us ate 3 courses with wine, all for 75 euro, and we were stuffed. You chose from a very short... More

We had a wonderful dinner, the service, food drinks were excellent. No pretentious put-ons here, just first class authentic Italian food and hospitality at great value. It certainly appeared to be the reaturant of choice for the locals.

Concur with previous review. Hard walk up there so expensive taxi needed. We walked back down to Levanto. Road is bit dark but very quiet. Nice to digest food and to experience lovely mountain air and lights of villages. Food great and inexpensive so well worth trouble. Would not go on off-chance though, the restaurant was full the evening I... More

We found the well hidden restaurant in a little village in the mountains by asking an old lady sitting on a bench near the church. Even though we don't speak any Italian she succeded to explain to us where it was. Otherwise we had never found it. We had a wonderful tortellini and a very dilicious rabbit followed by the... More

First of all, the taxi to and from the restaurant cost almost as much as the meal (due to the fact that the restaurant is a couple of miles up in the hills above Levanto, there are only a small handful of taxis, and the meal is so inexpensive) The pasta was delicious and the portions ridiculous. That was good... More
