“extraordinary town but do not eat there”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

They say places away from hustle of big cities are picturesque and full of history and deserve to be appreciated by tourists, but sometimes these places are exactly what they seem ..... small eateries in the country, not very clean and not too warm with tourists. We had a very unpleasant experience – in the “vegetarian” pizza on the menu we found ham although I told the lady that we want "Senza carne" and assured me she understood. the bill charged 500 ml beer while I only serve 330 ml and I paid the same eat-in tax as the place I ate in Florence although it was not mentioned anywhere .... :) Either way, you can not make a complaint to these people as they say that they do not understand anything. Bad, bad, bad, holliday buster.

“more than pleasant if you seat outdoor in the old square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

I like to come and have dinner here especially in the summer because you can set outdoor in the old square of Ameglia medieval town. it is a real Italian old stone made town on the top of the hill and if you have children they are free to run around because cars are not allowed. food is good and wine or beer are ok. overall what counts is the atmosphere. really good.

“Nice hideaway”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2010

This small family osteria is placed at the very nice and small square of the mountain village Ameglia. Typical italian food is served including local specialities. The service is very friendly. You will not be disappointed
