Had a fantastic meal here. Reasonably priced. Family of 4 all trying a different pasta dish. All extremely tasty. The restaurant was too busy for an outside sea view but happily sat inside. Very warm, no air conditioning but it didn't spoil our experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful. English menu available. Wish we'd have eaten there again.

The staff were very helpful, not pushy, wanted to engage in English. Menu was good, translated into English, pasta was wonderful, seafood was sublime, including the squid and octopus!! The drinks were generous (especially the G&T) and we were looked after really well. On one evening, we couldn't get in as it was so busy, speaks volumes.

We stayed in Rapallo for two nights and had dinner here both of those nights. The menu had a large variety from pastas to pizzas to seafood. The meals here were very reasonably priced and tasted delicious. We ate the ravioli, gnocchi and seafood pasta, all of which were very nice. This restaurant also had splendid panoramic views of Rapallo... More

We stayed in Rapallo for three nights and two out of three nights we ate here. Great service, great food and atmosphere. The tripadvisor map is a bit in correct, u will find this place further up the road near BBQ. Highly recommended.

We wanted meat lasagne and this place we thought did it. When we sat down and actually read the menu, it did not. We got it wrong. They do a local vegetarian type, so we started off a little disappointed. I had calamari, my wife ravioli bolognese which turned out to be a good substitute for the lasagne. The sides,... More

Tuna tagliata was superb. Beef was tasty. Reasonable prices. Strawberries were also fresh and sweet. Many locals were there and that is good sign for tourists.

Nowhere in Rapallo disappointed for food and this was no different. Seafood spaghetti possibly the best we had (though it's great everywhere) Excellent choice of wine and better still some great recommends from the waiter

Good location on the main bay frontage. Good selection and prices. Very good size portions and extremely friendly staff. You fee that this is a family run business. The staff remembered you and always made you feel welcome. Many people we met ALL came back here.

Ate at this ristorante, we ordered a mushroom pizza and the spaghetti bolognese, the spaghetti was no more than mediocre, but I was truly shocked when my mushroom pizza arrived with tinned mushrooms on it, I cannot believe that in the birthplace of pizza they use tinned mushrooms, the pizza was extremely disappointing, I can get a vastly superior pizza...

This is a great Restaurant Pizzeria on the sea front in Rapallo. Barbara and her mother Antonieita are wonderful hosts and really know how to make their customers happy. There are always plenty of locals eating here which is always a great sign. We ate there 4 times last week and loved it every time. Prices are very good. Fantastic pizzas from €4, beautiful pasta dishs, and some great seafood. I would highly recommend Azzurra in Rapallo.
