My boyrfriend and I ate here over a week ago and are still talking to family and friends about how amazing it was! Ths setting was simply stunning, so quiet, intimate and very romantic. I contacted the restaurant before our stay on Instagram and the...response was warm and friendly which definitely transferred through to our experience at the resturant itself. A welcome drink was a lovely touch and the staff were delightful throughout, so attentative and willing to help in terms of recommendations for wine and food choices. The wine list is extensive and caters for all tastes and budgets. The food served was simply exquisite and so fresh! I loved the use of homegrown produce and the combination of flavours in each dish complimented each other perfectly. Thank you for being such fantastic hosts, we had a spectacular evening which we will not forget.More

A refined country restaurant, spacious, well appointed, great service and exquisite food. A great Wine List, in the best Italian tradition. Let the freshness of the season products guide your choices. Best restaurant of the month, by a few lengths. Wish I could go there...three more times just this week.More

Wonderful provenance of local ingredients skillfully cooked, not over elaborate which allowed the quality of the main ingredient to take centre stage and shine which is not an easy thing to do requiring great precision when there are multiple dishes served at a table. A...gorgeous rustic ambience with attentive discrete friendly service, tables nicely spaced for private conversation and a stunning wine list. Highly recommended if visiting Sestri Levante or thereabouts.More

This restaurant is not among the strip of restaurants near the bays so you get a more authentic and less touristy feel. The service was outstanding. Very accommodating. The atmosphere is quiet and the decor is interesting (see the photos on this site). The menu...has traditional dishes and some twists. Really enjoyed the pastas and some of the raw options available.More

I have to start saying that despite I come to Sestri since several years and I must have been suggested to come here hundred of times by different people, today was my first time here. I had a very good experience posetively influenced, I think,...also by the fact that it was mid season. One of the reason why I have always been reluctant to come here was the location, which is outside of center of Sestri. That being said, the location is actually very nice. The interior reminds a bit a typical restaurant you would fine in Tuscany. Outside the property is in the middle of a nice park. The food is good. I have to say..I feel that there is something missing, like..the food is quite sophisticated but maybe missing the last mile. That being said, very good and right now, food wise, it is right below if not the same level of my favorite restaurant in Sestri. Rezzano. Well done Cantine Cattaneo.More

We had a fantastic meal here very fresh seafood cooked to a very high standard, great pasta and a superb chocolate fondant. The vermentino was also great, definitely worth a visit and will return when next in Sestri Levante.

Grab a table outside by the beach, order a cocktail and sit back and relax and watch the world go by. We were entertained by the antics of dogs, a wedding up the end of the beach, little boats coming in and out and the...changing light. Great cocktails and delicious and plentiful bar food. Low key and ideal.More

A very charming restaurant with tasty, elaborated, fresh and quality food! Prices are a bit high but reasonable for the quality of the food. I love their concept of open kitchen! Nevertheless, the service is very long as they are under-staffed. One lady who is...juat there to greet customers and one waiter with two kind young waiters. Only 3 waiters is not enough to serve customers. We had to wait 20 minutes to get cards to order desserts and another 20-30 minutes for dessertsMore
