Biassa is a charming and friendly town high above La Spezia. We had a nice time at this restaurant, but as for the food - I guess tastes vary. The pluses first: nice service, nice room, great anchovies with lemon as an antipasto, good porchetta with potatoes. The minuses: the pasta dishes, both house specials, were just drowned in thick...

The inside of this restaurant is great, a large hall where feels like everyone is eating together. The grill is in the corner of the restaurant and you can watch as the cooks cook the panigacci and secondi (carne, porchetta). Recommend if you are staying in La Spezia or Biassa. You must try panigacci and any specials of the day.

Wonderful place in mountains on the way to La Specia. Ideal for the travellers rest. Real piece of true Italy. I like it.

"There's no bad food in Italy," we were told dozens of times before departure, and it's true. However, in the 4 weeks we visited this country where foodies are in heaven every day, this was one of our very best meals, and that's saying a lot. I am very particular when it comes to food, and have been to excellent... More

I ate at this restaraunt tonight by recommendation of my accomodation and plan to go back tomorrow night. It's reasonably priced, good size portion and is such a cute little restaraunt! Would highly recommend for anyone visiting the cinque terre

If you are near the village of Biassa you MUST visit La Locanda del Gallese. Not only does it have local specialties, the sevice is fantastic and the food is wonderful. We visited twice during our five night stay in Biassa. The huge steak my daughter had was cooked on a grill over hot coals and was tender and cooked... More

This is the authentic trattoria you want to experience before you leave Italy. Only but rustic atmosphere, local customers and the genuine italian food you don't get served in the touristic restaurants in the area. We got there by recommendation of an Italian friend and had dinner there 2 days in a row. The owner couple are wonderful and friendly,... More
