As a welcome when we got in, the staff gave us a glass of Prosecco and some nibbles. The seafood starters myself and my partner had were great, especially the seafood salad and the octopus- the size of the dishes was impressive. For the main course, we had rombo alla ligure: it was excellent. We were full after that so never progressed to dessert. The staff were very warm during our stay, and at the end of the meal the chef came out to ensure that the food was appreciated. Highly recommended.

We wanted our last night in Chiavari to be special, so looked for restaurants on trip advisor. We discounted one bad review due to the tone and nature of the feedback, and were very glad of that decision. We rang and booked ahead for 6 (this is a good idea if you want to be assured a table, even if close to the time you want to eat). We chose to sit in the courtyard, which although is close to the road is well screened and provides a perfect setting for intimate or group dining.
Be prepared for a warm welcome, and a menu with enough options for everyone, without being overwhelming. Service was prompt, and attentive without being intrusive. I'd recommend the seafood, though the steaks were also tender and delicious.
Our evening was made particularly enjoyable by Lorenzo, who took care to answer our questions fully, and provided plenty of information on the options, and in English too - since we are from New Zealand, with very poor italian! A real pleasure to have someone who "enjoys his work" looking after our requirements.

Compared to many other restaurants and meals we had while travelling through France, Italy and Spain, we felt this was all reasonably priced, and we all left very happy (and full :).

We were craving seafood and since this was the number one rated, we thought we should give it a go.
We were not disappointed. We reserved so had a lovely table outside. The atmosphere was very nice, the service was good, but most importantly, the food was fantastic. We shared the pesto pasta to start and it is the best we have had on this trip (and we have have had a lot!!!!), for mains, husband had the fish special which was good and I had the tuna steak which was also good.
We thoroughy enjoyed our evening and would highly recommend.

Third time after several months. Food was still excellent. Customer service was still great and friendly. We had a great evening with, for the first time, our two - admittedly a bit noisy - eldest kids who were also very satisfied by what they ate. Excellent prosecco. The day after we bought another dinner as a gift for some relatives who were also impressed when they went. Warmly recommended.

Horrible service, bad food, charge Euro 3,- per napkin - we came highly recommended, spent 70 Euro out of which 15 Euro were for the napkins. The waitress took half an hour to attend to us, the food was salty and not tasty, and the entire experience was extremely disappointing. Do not go here!

Buongiorno,

dispiace leggere queste parole da clienti che non hanno prenotato, ma essendo in periodo di alta stagione erano stati avvertiti che il tempo di attesa poteva essere leggermente più lungo. Ciononostante questi clienti si sono lamentati del prezzo del coperto che include calice di prosecco, piccolo aperitivo di benvenuto, pane fatto in casa. Inoltre i tavoli dei commensali vicino ci hanno chiesto più volte se i loro bambini potessero fare meno caos in giardino.
Il tutto per 70€ in 5 persone, nemmeno in un fast-food si riuscirebbe a spendere così poco. Di 'disappointing' a nostro avviso c'è stata solamente la nostra esperienza con loro.
