“The very best....exactly what a Trattoria should be”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

Yes, this is by far the best in Rapallo, but it goes far beyond that.

Ignore the decoration...the food here is simple, fresh, and superb. All the family are a delight, and the pride they take in their work is clear to see. Follow their advice on the local wines...note that it is full of locals...and appreciate what is saddly becoming the lost art of the true trattoria.

“Very good food, but be sure to make reservations!”
Reviewed August 8, 2011

We ate here our first night in Rapallo. We did not have reservations, which was a mistake. This place was packed! Thankfully, we went early in the evening and were seated within 30 minutes. The service was a bit slow, but the staff were all very friendly and we didnt feel rushed. The menu was limited, but the food was very good. We would probably eat here again, but we'll make reservations next time!
