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

We had an amazing dinner at this restaurant. Every course was delicious and the waiter was really nice and polite. If we'll ever have the chance to go there again, we will!

This was our preferred restaurant (stayed at the CDH Hotel) We liked eating at the small terrace and appreciated the effort of the friendly staff to prepare the excellent food and drinks for a reasonable price. It is a busy place, so make sure you make a reservation.

If you are asian, just forget about coming to this restaurant that you could never get any seats. Me and my friends simply got rejected for no reasons (the restaurant was empty when we were there), and they claimed the whole summer is full when we wanted to reserve a dinner slot.

The owner of our B&B recommended this restaurant to us and we were very happy with the food and excellent service! It is an intimate little gem down a small street off the main shopping drag. We were treated to free bubbly and appetisers upon arrival and thoroughly enjoyed three courses and a bottle of wine, all within walking distance... More

We booked the place since noon, and when we were here at 7:30PM, we figured out we were the first group here~(Of course later full table occupied). The staff was very friendly, introducing us the food and wine. The white wine came from center Italy , Toscana, with the fish soup and duck leg, I felt very satisfied. Also ,... More
