This place has a truly amazing location and the view is just stunning aswell as the food (and wine)! Go for one of the the tasting menus and let them propose a wine, you will not be disappointed!

One of the best nights me and my wife had had was spent here this June. Great food, service and wine and an unforgettable walk home following the fireflies back to our B&B afterwards. There was also a really warm atmosphere in the restaurant with mainly only Italians and locals there. Awesome place!

Being a regular visitor to Liguria, I was told this is a classic place in the Ligurian hills worth a visit. About a 20 minute drive from the Lavagna/Chiavari coastline, roads get narrower while you pass a number of small villages. This place is far from everything.

Dining hall shows a lot of character and tradition, and it was full booked during this Pasquetta lunch. You eat local food here, but than the real stuff. After a mix starter with loads of goodies, fresh pasta with rabbit and pine nuts and olives. As a main, lamb was served which was ok but not great. A little dry and warm but not hot.


The really great thing about the Brinca is their wine list, simply spectacular and probably the best in the region. Liguria is not know for its strong Red wines, but the Maitre brought out this experimental local Red wine from nearby Sestri Levante. Wow! A “bomba”; Amerone style which you would never expect could be from Liguria.

Service is really nice and professional. So expect food to be honest and above average, and overall a fantastic dining experience.

i have visited La Brinca many times because the food is typical ligurian so is very unusual for me. They are creative with herbs and local produce.
The wine list is the best I have seen and the service is friendly.

Great food and wine, phenomenal value, and great service.

Try the local specialty menu at €40 is brilliant.

Well worth a visit!
