“A good find in Central Diano Marina”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

The majority of the restuarants in the centre of town cater for the family market, which is fine. Here too families are well catered for but there is the added attraction of good quality local dishes to tempt the 'older' couples who want something more than the pizza or pasta selections. The outdoor seating is quite interesting as well - if the tables to the front of the building are full there are others to the rear of the restaurant where a small alleyway has been nicely converted.

We had one of the fish specials of the day, beautifully cooked. The owner speaks good English as well, and made us feel quite at home. Having decided on the pricier options on the menu, the overall bill came in at €100 for two.

“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Ate there three times when staying in Diano Marina. Would rank it Nr 1 of Diano. Many thanks to all reviewers here ))) We followed your advices again, and again that was the right choice! The owner was there all evenings, controlling, advising and maybe even cooking ) We tried mainly fish and seafood, rombo (seemed to be solefish?), all very well made and fresh. A couple next to us took seafood pasta and we heard them saying it was the best they`d ever tried. Nice and friendly waiters, and small but exquisite dessert choice! That was the first and only place I tried a special dessert made from pear (not my favourite fruit) with hot chocolate topping and a bit of cognac? It was mouthwatering! Don`t miss it if you are there! They make three-four cake and dessert varieties for the evening and very soon are out of them.
But don`t forget to book, they are really full all evenings!

Very hospitable and friendly. This family run restaurant is in the town centre under traditional ligurian arches.

“Excellent dinner choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2011 via mobile

We had dinner at the Osteria based on recommendations on TA and were very impressed. We had the cheese plate and mixed house starter, both of which were huge and delicious. For the main course we ordered fish of the day for 2, which was rombo, a kind of flat fish so amazingly fresh, tender and juicy... Some Ligurian pigato wine to go with. Homemade desserts all looked great, so i couldn't resist and had a vanilla pudding with blueberry preserve and amaretto. My husband tried two different sweet wines, especially recommended is the sicilian one, which is absolutely 5-star!
Altho we spoke italian with the waiter, I heard staff speak other languages. The bill was over €100, but worth every cent.

“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2010

We were intrigued by the fish dishes, had an excellent fish soup as entree plus great tuna as main course. Service was great, food excellent. Did not have dessert.\
Only negative point, the radio music, coming from a radio behind our backs.
