“Good dinner with enough choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

Great little dining spot in La Foce with some unusual dishes including bruschetta with gorgonzola and honey. We ordered beef tagliata which was a little overcooked and not the most tender, although the grilled sausages were excellent. Friendly service, warm ambience, bar in the adjoining room. If we could give some advice to the owners we would say to start the evening dinner service a little earlier, especially in winter, as often overseas travellers like to dine early.

“Neighborhood restaurant with good home cooked food and nice wait staff.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

Arrived in La Spezia and was able to walk to this neighborhood restaurant. The place was filled with locals and food was very good and good value. You felt like you we're getting a home cooked meal. The service was pretty good considering it was Saturday night, busy and only 2 waitresses who were friendly. Ambiance leaves a bit to be desired but would return again.
