“Ok restaurant but not spectaculair”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013

Menu is general. Although previous reviews rave about the pesto there is in fact only one pesto item on the menu. The menu is in Italian, German end English although the owner does not seem to speak a word of English so some difficulty with the wine list which is in Italian only.
Location is close to the beach. Some tables outside, interior comfortable. The dishes served where good.
Please note you can only pay with cash.

“Splendid!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013 via mobile

Amazing place and very good cuisine! Clean, sweet and with atmosphere! All dishes are prepared after your order, i.e. no pre-cooking! It means that everything is fresh! Fish was amazing!!! Good selection of wines. Personnel was helpful and very attentive and assisted with selection of dishes :) Prices were fair. Overall we quite enjoyed the evening. Thank you!

“Best pesto ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2012

Do not miss this nice restaurant. Husband and wife run it- she waits the tables and he does the cooking. The pesto here is "to die for" . A must in the Liguria area. Very cordial and their prices are fair. Eat well and enjoy.
