We were a group of 9 people. Made reservation for dinner. Poor , slow service . Food was served at different times to different people. Several orders were forgotten. Food was not tasty or special, apart from the ravioli. The place seemed to be severely understaffed. Cannot recommend it at all. Wouldn't come here again.

We can highly recommend the antipasto misto, tonno fumé, taglierini tot gamberi and sogliola mugnaia. The food was outstanding although my husband's sole dish lacked colour. Apart from one very pleasant tall waiter, the rest of the staff were obviously overwhelmed and unprepared for what was a very busy night. One in particular was actually running back and forth between... More

please stay away from this place! Awfully cooked food. All smells the same: oily smoke fragrance.... they can't even cook potatoes. So we refused to pay the full price and had quite a discussion there. Tasteless without fantasy and passion. The restaurant is usually empty anyway. Now we know why!

One of the lesser great restaurants - the food was expensive yet still average and the restaurant was completely understaffed with us having to remind the waiter to bring us our water and wine. Overall not great.

The best meal of my week in Rapallo, well cooked and tasty, with great friendly service. Would highly recommend, just sorry I didn't try it earlier in my stay so that I could have returned.

Restaurant is close to the marina and doesn't have views. However, pleasant enough location and away from the crowds in the town itself. Service was average. Highlight was the food and the wine list. Highly recommend the gnocchi. The price was really reasonable as well.

We recently enjoyed a lovely meal at this restaurant whilst staying in Rapallo. Food was very good, along with great wine and perfect service. It's a little away from the centre of Rapallo, directly below the Excelsior Palace Hotel, but well worth a visit - especially if you want to escape the crowds.

Nice space, food OK, cool/indifferent service, but we are in northern Italy and we are English! Fully expected the maritime theme of portholes and rope, however really puzzled by the gas mask lurking in the liquor trolley and the huge photographs of World War Two soldiers and weapons of war!

Thank Thrupence
