“Like a scene from the 'Godfather.'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2014

Just visited this traditional Italian Restaurant - just like a scene from that famous movie. Decorated in 1950s Brooklyn, but busy and buzzy. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful and assisted with the menu. I luckily spotted rabbit on the menu which of course I ordered. It was as good as expected and our other main fish was seafood spaghetti. This was also excellent. We quickly drank a local red wine and were too full for dessert, but the staff brought some lovely pastries anyway. Hope to return when next in Alassio.

“Noisy”

The food although typical was not good. The night we were there a soccer game was on tv and what appeared to be a mens club were so loud the meal was not enjoyable.

Lovely old fashioned Italian restaurant with a friendly ambiance. We tried the mixed fish Antipasto, tasty and interesting to the taste buds. The main fish dishes and the pesto were excellent. Enjoyable meal.

“Good cuisine, but unpolite staff”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

Very good cuisine, from Ligurian tradition: "pasta al pesto", fish, metà, very fresh salades. Yet the staff is rather unpolite, hurried: it doesn't seem able to make you feel at home.
