“PERFETTO!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

We are the geeky American tourists who have little knowledge of fine Italian wine or food, but this is unmistakenly the BEST authentic meal we have had on our Italy vacation. Gabriel helped us choose a local wine that was the perfect complement to our meal. The food was fantastic!! We plan to eat here again before we leave to go home and can't wait!! Great service, great food!

“The one that keeps on giving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

We go to Liguria every year to visit my wife's relatives, and we never miss visiting La Bossa at least once. Once again it did not fail us. We had lovely food and wine, and the kids loved it too, a real plus for us. We will be back. Grazie Caterina e Gabriele.

“Our Favourite in Camogli”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

We enjoyed our first meal at La Bossa so much we came back two nights later. Great food, great wine and great service on both occasions. The mixed anchovie starter was excellent as was the pesto papperdelle. Both would be good choices for experiencing Ligurian cuisine at its finest. The first night we each had the rack of lamb, which was really good as well.

Short and sweet review. Try this restaurant. It's not located along the waterfront like so many ot the others in Camogli, but don't let that stop you. Walk along the waterfront after you've eaten at La Bossa.

“A true local gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013 via mobile

Small restaurant in the heart of Camogli with an extensive wine list, a friendly and knowledgeable staff, sommelier and amazing local pasta and seafood. Minutes from the Camogli Port. English spoken.

“Small but brilliant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 10, 2013 via mobile

We ate here twice in a week while staying in Camoglia. The first time was on a very wet Sunday and we spent a leisurely 2 hours eating a four course lunch and a very nice bottle of Franciacorta fizz. The menu is quite short but the choice is pretty good. Second time was just a couple of courses in the evening and was equally good. There's a great take on spaghetti aglio e olio with some stuff called bottarga which is tuna eggs, spicy and fishy. Good value too.
