“Good food at a good price in a good atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2012

Four of us spent a late April week in La Spezia as a base for walking in the Cinque Terre. Our centrally-located hotel suggested several local restaurants, but we so liked Al Quadrato that we ate there on four evenings. The menu is attractive with a good choice of antipasti, primi piatti [lots of pasta dishes], secondi piatti [both meat and fish] and a range of dolci as well as a large selection of pizzas. The house wine (both red and white) was pretty good. Service from owner Stefano De Lisi and his staff was friendly and efficient. The restaurant was always comfortably busy - a good sign we felt - and the dining area was bright and clean. We came away feeling we'd had a 'good dining experience' - good food at a good price in a good atmosphere.

“Very good food in a cosy atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2011

I was herefor Chirstmas and I was ositeily sirprised by this small restaurant. It's the firs time that i'm happy with a pre-set menu. Everything was tasty, dishes were big we were four and could not manage to finish everything. Most of the food was fish, really good. I usually find restaurant food too salty, this was not :)
A Xmas menu for 45 euros per person with 4 entrees, 2 pasta, lamb, fish, potatoes, vegetables and cakes. I was hppy with everything so i would advise this place. Tah 2 waiters/owners are young and nice. This place also cooks pizza, haven't tried it though.
