“Tourist rip-off”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 24, 2014 via mobile

In the past, we made very good experience looking at trip advisor for recommendations for hotels and restaurants. So when we did a stop over in Recco, we looked for highly rated restaurants. Da O' Vittorio was among and close to where we parked. The waiter was friendly and told us that their Foccacio was famous (he did not offer to bring the menu) and we thought this might be a starter. The Foccacio that was served after a while looked nice and tasted reasonable. When I asked for the bill, the Foccacio showed with a hefty price of 10 € per person, the small bottle of beer with 6€. Recco is not Pisa or Florence, and the quality of the food we have been served does not justify the price we paid. So this place was a let-down. I hope there are not too many of this kind highly rated in TripAdvisor as this would call the value and quality of the reviews in question.

“Fantastic Recco focaccia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

We (2 adults, 2 kids) had lunch here, the main feature was, naturally, the focaccia, which is the pride of the city. Its worth mentioning that the kids enjoyed the meal just as much as the adults (they had lasagna and pasta) and that service was polite and relatively fast (place was half full).

The focaccia is, without doubt, one of the best ones in the city, if you're lucky they would present it to you on a giant wood platter before the slice it and serve it. Only note that this is not the thick focaccia type but a very thin and delicate dough with amazing melted cheese inside, well worth a try.

“Nice restaurant with excellent focaccia”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 11, 2013

We had two main dishes (fish),1 foccaccia, 1 bottle of Dolceacqua wine, and 2 deserts for 87 euros. I think this is normal for such a nice restaurant. We did not make any reservation but we were able to find a table on the terrace, where the ambient was cozy. But don't except any view, because the restaurant is across the main road. Our waiter was sweet and very friendly. The food was delicious, especially foccaccia, which I would never forget such a flavour.

“Focaccia just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2013

Focaccia e pizzata were below expectations. We had instead excellent trenette al pesto and ravioli. The key issue was the fact that we ordered the focaccia (we were there for the famous focaccia di Recco) as appetizer and we've got it after the pasta and that spoiled the experience quite a bit. There was only one waitress which is possibly the reason why our order got messed up.
We dined at the "Osteria" which is the "cheapest" version of the restaurant in the basement but with a very nice and authentic atmosphere. Prices at the Osteria are very cheap: so overall good value for your money. The location is excellent: only 3km from the autostrada exoit.
