“Tasty Set Menu”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

Like many other reviewers we went for the fish set menu. The food was excellent, especially the tuna steak encrusted with pistachio. Service was very theatrical and you did feel valued even though it was obvious that other diners were getting exactly the same treatment. But at least they were making an effort to ensure the meal was an enjoyable experience, far better than having a surly waiter reluctantly serving up dishes.

We thought the food was the best we had in Rapallo and the 35 euros cost of the set menu was reasonable for the quality of food. We only visited this restaurant once near the end of our stay but would have gone again if we’d had more time.

“Good food in the perfect location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Great service. The staff was the most attentive and helpful. Near the promenade next to the charming narrow lanes.

“Little Sicily in Rapallo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

A true Sicilian restaurant with Rocco in the kitchen and his brothers running around serving the tables. This was early September and the restaurant quickly filled up. Their menu is quite extensive starting from just pizzas' to a regular home-made Sicilian menu - or menus as there is a meat menu as well as a sea menu. I went with the meat menu with large servings. It is family like cooking and different from what we are used to. I am not sure I would go back but I do not regret the discovery / experience. I would even recommend the food to anyone wishing to try the specialties. Service was quite friendly and the waiter took his time to explain the dishes.

“Great Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

My wife and I had a great meal at K2 Rocco. The restaurant is located a bit off the main street across from the sea. We sat close to the patio,but inside the restaurant. This turned out to be a good choice because we were not bothered by the peddlers selling scarfs and flowers to those on the patio. We choose the tasting menu which included salad, pasta, choice of entree, and dessert along with a glass of wine and a bottle of water. This was a great buy since the quality and quantity of the food was outstanding. Giovanni who is one of the owners took really good care of us. Since this is owned by Sicilians my wife who is also Sicilian really enjoyed talking to Giovanni about the food. She had the best cannoli ever and she makes her own at home.

I rated the service a bit lower because we also went for lunch before we left Rapallo. Our waiter did not seem to be interested in taking care of us. We had to wait 20 minutes just to get the bill, even after I asked him since we did have a train to catch.

“Disappointed at K2”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

Had lunch at K2 while in Rapallo. Knew that it was rated #1 in Trip Advisor. We were very disappointed in the food. Service was good, and staff friendly, but the food was poor. The shrimp were almost raw, and the risotto soggy. Maybe it was because it was late during lunchtime, but we were very disappointed
