“One of the best restaurants in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012 via mobile

We often have dinner here when we are in La Spezia, and we do not remember a single time we were disappointed.

Pros:
- good quality ingredients (especially seafood which is always "catch of the day")
- unusual but always well chosen combinations
- nice, friendly and familiar environment
- pleasant location just off the main shopping streets, with outside tables which are great in the summer

“Great fresh homemade food, good value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2011

Be sure to get the seafood appetizer sampler! The meat was tender and juicy as well. Two young owners, very hard working. Creative and interesting decor inside. The food was fresh and homemade -- no chemical or processed aftertaste, so.you don't feel stuffed or heavy afterwards. A casual place, but what isn't, in Spezia?
