“Rocco is the best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2012

Rocco makes you feel like family. We came back a 2nd night because he made us feel so welcome. His food is good and he is passionate about his place. He even gave us 2 bottles of wine to take with us to Lake Como since he knew we were traveling by car. The 2 couples from Seattle miss you already Rocco. Thanks for such a great experience with our trip to Italy. You and your restaurant were the highlight!

“Is this really the best restaurant in Rapallo?”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

This restaurant is now standing at the first place in the Tripadvisor ranking in Rapallo. A cynic could guess how could be the worse one! Joking aside, it is admirable that the property tries to elevate the level of the place above the average of standard sea-front restaurants, but the way is undoubtedly still very long. The place is very busy for pre-dinner cocktails, the restaurant service begins not before 8 pm on the same tables. This causes a pesky mix of patrons, the noisy youth hanging back on their mojitos and those seeking for a more peaceful dinner time. The menu offers quite a wide choice, mainly oriented to the Sicilian cooking. Following these proposals, I had spaghetti with pilchard sauce, that clearly showed to be prepared well in advance and more recently poured on the drained pasta. Then I had a tuna scallop crumbed with crunched pistachios, a classic preparation that I already tasted much better before. Let me say, a honest restaurant, in the bill too, but quite surprisingly considered to be the best restaurant in town.

“Best we have found in Rapallo”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012 via mobile

Great food, great entertainment. Would go back again and again! It required a wait of about one hour, but we sat at a wine bar next door and loved every minute of people watching and very nice happy hour. When we finally were seated, the service was fast. I had the steak which was fantastic. My wife had the chicken which was even better. Well done to the staff of K2.

“Family Owned and It Shows”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

We stayed in Rapallo for four nights and found this restaurant the final evening. Wish we had tried it sooner because we would have been back. It was a Friday night and there was a great blend of enthusiastic patrons and energetic wait staff. I was traveling with my family of seven and they quickly arranged a large table in the back area so we got a full view of the restaurant and all the action. It was great fun for everyone. Even with the large crowd our service was timely and the food came out prepared just like we had asked. Given the size of our groups we had the chance to try almost everything on the menu and each of the meals was excellent. It is run by a group of brothers and their families so you get the experience you would expect when going to someone's house. Good job guys.

“a rapallo "must do"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

k2 is a bit like ricks cafe in the film casablanca. "when in rapallo, everyone comes to k2." i went on a friday night where i found the crowd to be an eclectic bunch. tourists & locals (always a good sign), populated the place which was jumping well before the sun went down.
service was way above excellent, bordering on fantastic. staff had a tough time finding tables for varying sized parties, but did it with charm & professionalism.
i ordered the taster menu. i have to say it was a mixed bag. the first two courses were very good (especially the stuffed aubergine). but the main, beef steak sicilian style.....steak, with a cheese crust & balsamic sauce. it reminded me of a pub at home on a friday night, everything fighting.
but, next time i,m in rapallo (hopefully soon), my first port of call will be k2. dont let the hideous things sicilians do to their beef put you off, k2 should be high on anyones lists of waterholes in rapallo, see you there.
