“By chance....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

We found this gem by chance, while arriving after a hard trail competition lasted more than 4 hours in snow and rain. But the fatigue was not the reason why the food was delicious :) The quality was excellent and the menu definitely original despite still including all the traditional ligurian ingredients. A real gem I will visit again.

“A wonderful restaurant in a romantic setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

The medieval village of Toirano is a short drive off the Genova Ventimiglia motorway and is already really worth a detour in itself. If you are looking for a really special restaurant for a romantic setting this restaurant is really recommended. The setting is in an old olive oil mill, the walls are original red bricks lovingly restored by the previous owner who happened to be an architect. The mise en place is modern, with aluminium and glass tables providing a striking contrast to the surroundings. The food is od very high standard, which is unfortunately not the norm in Liguria. I had an excellent smoked beef carpaccio followed by a confit duck shank which literally melted in my mouth.The wine list is quite good with a prevalence for well known producers. The restaurant has recently changed hands and the new owners seem really keen and enthusiastic to make it even better. Best of luck and we hope to be back soon.
