“Best restaurant in the area”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013 via mobile

Amazing!! Everything was perfect. We unfortunately don't understand Italian, but Michele explained the whole menu to us and helped us to choose a wine. The wine was perfect, one of the best reds I've ever had. And the food was simple and absolutely delicious. We had a wonderful night and highly recommend a meal here if you are in Rapallo or driving through. It was by far our best meal in Italy.

“Wonderful place, hidden gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

This place is a hidden gem! We found it by pure accident 4 years ago and still coming there every time we're in Rapallo!
It's a family run reastaurant, the owner- Michele is very friendly and nice person, who's doing his best to accomodate his guests.
The food is wonderful and all freshly home made.
Zuppa di cozze (saute of mussels) is the best of all in the world! My husband really loves this meal and tries it everywhere; and every year when we return to Michelitto he's making sure of this opinion..)
Not to be missed - pansotti al salsa di noci (kind of ravioli with walnut sauce),also tagliata di manzo (grilled beef) is made to perfection.
Deserts are also great!
The atmosphere is simple, warm and quite. You'll be surrounded by beautiful mountains and locals who visit this place.

Mille grazie a Michele per un locale cosi buono dove siamo sempre felice a ritornare!

The most I loved was the location, you think you are in the middle of the mountains. Good food, we ate mushrooms (porcini), friendly atmosphere. As soon as I can I certanly will go back
