“Superb little place, very well priced”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

While not a 5 star restaurant, its definatly a great little place to stop for a meal in the evening. By all means not one to be missed, especaially if you have the luxery of trying a few places in the area.

The value for money is what makes this place stand out, the food is great and you'll be happy to know its local and fresh.

While offering something for everyone, It seems to be more on the seafood side, although we didnt eat any fish, 65% of the menu was sea food.

Good wine. All very very reasonably priced and left us very happy and our tastbuds too.

Nothing wrong at all.

“Amazing Food, Great Service from two people who care and are proud of their product-our second visit was as good.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011

We recently had a 5 day visit to the Cinque Terre area and stayed in La Spezia. During this period we had dinner at Il Ristorantino Di Bayon. Di Bayon provided us with a restaurant experience that we are still talking about. We also recommended it to fellow Australians we met at our La Spezia Hotel and their experience was exactly the same as ours. This is a two person establishment and runs so very smoothly with food that will delight your palate, service that is so very friendly and efficient. We had 3 courses with complimentary appetisers, two glasses of great quality house wine and our Bill came to 56 Euros. It would have cost at least double for a similar standard meal in Australia and that would not have included any wine. Our experience was such that we went back two nights late and it was just as good. Congratulations Il Bayon - your food is "to die for".

“Avoid this restaurant if you are not Italian”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2010

After 35 minutes of being ignored by the one and only waiter we left the restaurant. We got his attention before we left and more than once he said he was coming. In the meantime we got our menus form our neighbouring table and the waiter was changing plates on other tables, bringing them new cutlery, taking orders from tables around us and doing nothing in the kitchen besides talking to the kitchen staff. We had perfect seating to observe him in the kitchen.
Maybe the food is great, maybe it isn't: we never got a chance to even order it!! Stay away if you are not Italian, is our advise. Maybe young management means inexperienced in this case.
We drove for almost 40 kilometres to visit this restaurant, what a waist of time, energy en gas.
