I was a little bit reluctant to believe the previous reviews about this particular restaurant. However, it is sad to say that service really sucks. Quality of food is amazing. My congrats to the chef in every single dish presented. However, i can say it is not everything about the food. Top quality service must be a must, not to... More

Average, nothing special. When we asked for parmesan cheese for pasta dish, we were only told: "not recommended" and it was never brought to the table. 😀

Best Restaurant in Italy almost. Lobster is great. salmon tartar is fabulous. Wine Is perfect and everything's nothing close to expensive. Be careful not to miss the reserve, since it is hard to get a seat. be there on seven. Since the table is only flip once.

This little restaurant is difficult to get a table in but well worth it, after 1 week in la spezia we eventually got a table by arriving when the restaurant opens. Only 1 waiter and 1 chef but the food is outstanding. Salmon starter then Lobster and duck with coffee and a bottle of wine at only 60€!!! was 100%... More

We did not expect what we found. A back street restaurant hidden from the public thoroughfare. This was undoubtedly one of the best meals I have had in an Italian restaurant taking quality, service, ambiance and most definitely the price. We could not believe how inexpensive this restaurant was for such a high standard of delicious food. I would strongly... More

One of the best meals we have had in La Spezia (so far) after 5 days of trawling. Plenty of great sea food on the menu - my husband had a very meaty half lobster with a veggie and fruit salad base. There is a very respectable and aggressively priced wine list e.g. Hoffstater Muller Thurgau for 20 euros. Primo... More

Excellent menu (a little bit short for greedy person like me). You will found well presented, good quality and good prices dishes for everyone with an emphasis on seafood (speciality of La Spezia). I didn't like the white house wine but it were my choice. The wine menu is also well balanced. Toilets could be better for a classy restaurant... More

This place is usually booked but had a cancellation that allowed us to eat (book ahead!) I had a delicious beef carpaccio, half lobster with raw fruit and vegetables and a Charlotte sponge with cream for dessert. All were delicious and the waiter matched the meal with a great local white wine and spoke good English. We'll be going back... More

its a cosy and small little restaurant which can maximum fit 30 pax. The Manager is the waiter and the main person on the serving floor , detailed and meticulous. we loved the fish and seafood dishes and the restaurant had a very great cosy and vibrant feel to it
