We enjoyed this old restaurant in Bordighera Alta The pizza is good but I particularly liked the risotto ai Frutti di mare. Several friends suggest it and it was worthwhile to try it The seafood was good and the rise well cooked. Portions also very generous I have to notice the service, nice a fast, quite an exception in Liguria

A very simple restaurant in the medevial part of Bordighera. The terrace is convenient but inside, it is very simple. You can eat traditionnal italian food( pasta, pizza). I enjoy "rizzotto frutti di mare" with a glass of white wine "de la casa" but so meat and fish. As often in Italy, dessert are poor and industrial.

We went there for a quick and easy dinner expecting nothing special.... And indeed this was, even worse than expected!! We had a hot antipasto di mare and it was taste-less, very disappointing. As main course we had a pasta ai frutti di mare which was decent. The wine list is very poor: you can chose from a list of... More

my husband and I spend a lot of time in Bordighera and we always make at least one visit to Pizzeria Saracena. The seafood risotto is legendary - think of the best seafood paella you have ever had, it is similar to this. They do a version with sphagetti which is equally good. Pizzas are fine, but it is the...

The very reasonable prices are certainly part of the attraction of this easily found and often busy ristorante. Not the most sophisticated meal you will get - but not the most expensive either. Pizzas are fine. The recommended seafood risotto is robust and tasty. The local dolcheaqua (spelling?) wine is good.

We are frequent visitors to Bordighera, and if we are popping into the old town for dinner we go here. The risotto is, in the words of a fellow diner, "mythical" - and it does live up to the hype. The pizzas have one of the best bases around. And the house red is super-fruity and enjoyable on a hot... More
