This place is boring. We were bored, our neighbours were bored, probably because the waiters were bored - they know the food is low quality and overpriced. Go somewhere else, or throw your money away.

Octopus, pasta, and fish were all very artfully presented and incredibly tasting. The dessert “Oops, I dropped me Magnum” was a must. The staff were friendly and went out of their way to enhance out experience.

We came here for lunch and dinner- although we didn’t have a reservation- we found a table both times. The food is amazing! You can find some cuisine typical to the region- with the chef’s twist as well as traditional Italian cuisine. Very highly recommended!

As every year in Sestri Levante, we cannot miss a visit to this restaurant. Nice atmosphere, full of light, nice staff and full of choices. Not only the normal menu, but a long list of out of the menu dishes. We always enjoy being here....More
