This restaurant offers nice view on La Spezia gulf and very good seafood served in a friendly atmosphere in a basic environment If you are based in La Spezia this place is difficult to reach , practically impossible without a car ;in my view the effort of going there is not worth while, especially because there are many other nice...

Our first dinner in La Spezia was at this little restaurant. Dishes are very original, tasty and well prepared. We had only seafood, which was of course fresh and the tuna was exceptional, cooked to perfection and extremely tasty. The house white wine combined perfectly. All at a reasonable price (€56 for two people with a shared starter and individual... More

Delicious food with an incredible view! Located in the mountains around the city so you need to take a car to reach it. Friendly staff.

The food is excellent. I had pasta with seafood, and the kids had ravioli and they loved it. The waiters were very kind and the service fast. However, we had to cut our stay short and order the bare minimum because our table was inside, not in the nice terrace they have, and the heat in August was unbearable. We... More

Absolutely loved this place yesterday night. The friendly waiter who speaks very good English recommended us some great dishes (even though I'm sure everything on the menu tastes great). It was quite a drive from where we're staying but totally worth it! Make sure to book in advance it was quite full.

Take a drive outside of La Spezia to the best food ever. Everything about this restaurant was fantastic, food , atmosphere, staff and price. Add the view and you get an amazing experience.

We took the effort to drive to this far location just because we wanted to grab a bite for our family member's bday. We had no reservation and we were just improvisin in the late of night... until we hit on a rock with the "boss" as the waiter reffered to. He was arrogant and extreme basically telling us they...
