Were there on highest recommendation, so gave it our toughest comparison, the Arturo in Diano Marina, our favorite in Liguria - did not stand a chance. It was good, but nothing to rave about. Paid 133 € for 3. Antipasti and secondo and local Vermentino. Plenty of nice bread, though.

Small restaurant just a block off the beautiful city center of Chiavari. Not many tables, not a vast menu, but very interesting proposals. I have been in full autumn and they proposed several seasonal dishes, very well prepared, based on tradition but not common, chef must be quite creative. Tried a slowly cooked egg with black truffles that was new... More

Absolutely one of the best meals we've had on the Ligurian coast. We hope this foodheaven is not hidden from recognition for long. It deserves a place in the Michelin guide. And it is reasonable!

I was taken here by an Italian business colleague who lives in the town. It is his favourite restaurant and I can understand why. It is small and unpretentious, tucked away in the old town, but the food was simply wonderful. Squid cooked as I had never had it before, tender and tasty, and fresh shellfish with fresh pasta and...

We ate at Bocoon Divino last night and the food was amazing. Their seafood is prepared with the utmost care. The dishes are well presented and the menu is very unique. I would definitely eat their again.

If you don't like fish and seafood stay away, because in this small place you can find a selection of seasonal fishes cooked in the best possible way. The food is nicely prepared and very tasty. The owner, Mr. Oriano, is kind, attentive and can recommend the perfect wine to pair with your dish. Don't forget to leave room for... More
