At last a great restaurant in Ventimiglia that really caters to the gourmet! The owner and chef are passionate about food (talk to them about it): the quality of the ingredients (they really go for fresh, local products – ask what's in that day, for example) and the skill with which they are put together make all the difference. They've stocked some really interesting wines that won't break the bank, and will help you match them nicely to your food. Altogether, a great and memorable experience.

After travelling the Ligurian Alps for a week, we arrived at the coast to enjoy the beach. Strolling down the old marina area one evening, we were lucky to find this lovely osteria. We received a warm welcome from Oliviero and got a nice table on the terras.
The food was outstanding and the accompanying wine was fine. We have enjoyed our stay at this restaurant very much, also thanks to Oliviero's hospitality.
All in all this osteria is recommended for its fine wine, lovely dishes, and its hospitality, all at a fair price.

Absolutely perfect in every way. We were travelling back from San remo to nice and just by chance decided to stop in ventimiglia. We wandered over the bridge and spotted this restaurant. Every thing about it smells of quality from the decor through to the food and brilliant service. We had the set lunch of the day, octopus salad, followed by beef and roasted vegetable, topped off with one of the best tiramisus I have tasted. We also each consumed two coffees, half a bottle of Provence rose wine, two types of grappa, two types of limoncella, homemade cookiefound for an absolute bargain of 31 euros each. fantastic and funny Italian host who speaks French, English, Dutch, German and probably will have a go at any thing else you can through at him. Husband and wife team who are really professional and care about the service and quality and presentation of food. It really is a must . We couldn't believe it and will be making sure we make a special trip to this special place.

Everything is superb in this restaurant, from the welcome to the decor to the food to the wines. Its owners, husband and wife, have mastered a secret balance between sophistication and simplicity, warmth and professionalism. My friends and I were privileged to be the only customers on a rainy windy evening and we were treated like royalty. Went back the next day for lunch and the restaurant was packed, yet the service was just as perfect, efficient and friendly. And the prices are extremely reasonable for what you get. Simply put, this is a must if you stop in Ventimiglia.

We live in Monaco and drive to Ventimiglia all the time to eat here. Its husband and wife run with wife being the chef. Standard Italian dishes plus anything special we want cooked, nice wine selection too. Incredibly reasonable prices, especially compared with Monaco. Has occasional musical nights which are great fun and the owner is a walking guide book of where to get things locally. Good mixture of clients locals / visitors which is always a good sign.
