La Sciamadda dei Vinaccieri Ballerini


Ratings and reviews

Certificate of Excellence2015 - 2018 Winner

Location and contact

La Sciamadda dei Vinaccieri è il risultato di un mix curioso tra cucina ligure, tunisina e sarda: la cucina "Tabarchina". Si tratta di una storia piena di magia, curiosità, sacrifici, scommesse, sudore, emigrazione... Nel 1542 sull’isola di Taba​rca, si insediò una comunità di liguri, esperti pescatori di corallo. Parte di questa colonia due secoli dopo si trasferì in Sardegna, fondando Carloforte. La cucina tabarchina è il risultato di commistioni saporite e originali di tre diverse realtà con influenze liguri (pestu, fugasse, panissa, fainè), tunisine come nel "Cascà" (un cous cous vegetale e di pesce) ed il re incontrastato: il tonno, di cui si mangia quasi tutto (stomaco, esofago, cuore)

Our first night out in Sestri Levante after some time spent in the Dolomites. We were really looking forward to eating all the fish and sea food and were not at all disappointed. The food was excellent. We shared a starter of octopus and potato...More

You’d be safer booking or just have a bit of a wait. Delicious and inventive dishes, very reasonably priced with genuine friendly service. Wished we’d found it earlier in our stay.

This place is very popular with queues early in the evening.The food was the best we had in Liguari.The Pesto was to die for with a delicious Tiramasu.I had the house wine which was more than acceptable.The food is quality and reasonably priced.We will return

Hello, Thanks for your review... It's sound strange that you write about us kitchen as not very original. We serve ancient ligurian specialities and also specialities from an old colony of Genoa: Carloforte in Sardinia... no restaurant does it all over Liguria! We waited you...More

Went here with my wife while being on vacation. The location is very nice and the stuff more than friendly. The choice of food is just right. We had mussels as starter (which have been probably the best I ever had) and tuna as well...More

The food ist excellent, a bit pricey but the quality is good. I guess for a place like that the prices are normal. The service is very good, the young man who served us was very polite and helpful. I would totally recommend it.

We chose this restaurant as it seemed buzzy and popular with locals and tourists alike. We ordered the chickpea pancakes as they seemed to be a speciality and trofie al pesto (also a local speciality). Unfortunately these simple dishes were highly overpriced, the portions were...More
