“The best restaurant in Sestri”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

Unbelievably good and creative italian seafood restaurant. The highlights were the muscles with curry sauce and the basil gnocchi (not on the menu) with seafood (all fresh and cooked to perfection)...something from another world! Be prepared to wait as here they take slow food to another level...but your patience will be rewarded!

“One of our best dinners in Sestri”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013

We came here based on the review from Trip Advisor and were very satisfied with the meal. The service was very friendly. Most importantly, the food was delicious. You can really tell when a restaurant uses fresh ingredients. My husband's tuna was perfectly seared. The kids had pasta al ragu which was not on the menu, but they had it on hand..probably for the picky kids. My pansotti with walnut sauce was wonderful. We will definitely return.

“Great find!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

Booked table for 6 over the phone for 8pm only to arrive 5minutes too early and been told to return after half an hour because they will have a group of 40 people to feed. We left it for an hour just in case and, when returned, the group was still there but we were greeted by the owner like family members and he swiftly moved some diners around to create us a table. The menu in english was written on a paper table mat which was interesting. But the food was great! Worth all the waiting and hassle

“A Pretty Good Start”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2012

This was the first of a week's restaurant dining in Sestri Levante, and was a very good start. A seafood spaghetti, followed by sea bass, then a chocolate mousse. The house red wine was excellent.
