This was one of my favourite discoveries while staying in Rapallo and once we came across it we had aperitivi here each night before dinner.
The location and view are amazing. On the Lungomare it looks directly out to the castello on the beach. There are a few tables outside on the front and many more inside. However, if you can, show up after 7pm and they put out a handful of tables on the flat rocks down below the Lungomare. We were lucky to time our visit well one night and got one of these tables. It really was beautiful sitting out as the sun set and the sea gently lapped against the rocks. If you do sit here you will get visitors in the form of ducks swimming up looking for a stray snack but it all adds to the experience.
The drinks menu was very extensive and I think you would struggle to find something they didn't have on offer/couldn't make up. Prices were very reasonable as well when you consider what you get with the drinks....When ours were brought out we also got a small bowl of crisps, one of nuts and one of olives. Lovely we thought and sat back to admire the view. Shortly afterwards the waitress appeared again this time with a platter of stuzzichini (snacks) which come as standard with any drinks order. Each night the content varied - small pieces of pizza, mini sandwiches, mini bruschette with various toppings, pasta salad, a few chips, sliced raw vegetables....the list goes on. If you order another drink you get the same thing. One night after two drinks and two rounds of the freebies we didn't even need dinner!
The service was very good and I happily left a tip well over the odds due to the great value, setting and friendly staff.
I would urge anybody who goes to Rapallo to stop by here, admire the view, have a drink, sit back and enjoy....I know I did.
