“Overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2012

The dishes were way too salty, prices too high for what was presented (mediocre), we struggled to get the attention of waitrons most of the night.

Compared to other places in the city an the villages around this place does not meet their high price with the standard of the food. Food was ok but not more.

“Nice restaurant on a piazzetta in Bordighera Alta”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

La Cicala serves ligurian food with en emphasis on seafood. Outdoor setting very nice in a small square.

Food good but not outstanding, stuffed greens with a bottarga stuffing, fried anchovies and a nice swordfish.
Excellent wine selection of wines from some of the best areas in Italy. A good selection of Friuli wines which always goes well with the ligurian kitchen.

Service rapid, effecient and nice. Will certainly go back.
