I have eaten at this restaurant a few times since last year and would recommend it to anyone. The owner, Claudio, is a friendly chap who is eager to please his customers. The food is fantastic, especially the antipasto, paccheri with seabass, and the seabream. The location is wonderful with beautiful views. Good wine and coffee too. I love the inside dining area which is unusually decorated with lots of lamps and lovely candelabras dripping with wax and two thrones! A new rooftop seating area will be opened before the summer too! A great place to relax and enjoy a good meal!

We visited this restaurant a couple of weeks ago on Friday evening October 7th.
The temperature was still fine so that we decided to take a sit on the beautiful furnished terrace.
Then we had to wait quit a long time until somebody came along to serve us. It lasted more than 20 minutes before someone finally asked us what we would like to drink.
We got a menu only written in Italian. They did not have a menu written in any other language, which is quit strange for a significant restaurant in an international known town like Lerici.
None of the serving people spoke even a little bit of English or German, therefore they were not able to translate some of the dishes stated on their menu.
When we finally found some nice fish dishes they told us that it was too late to order this (it was only 20.30 pm !). The only dishes they still could serve us was Tagliata di Tonno (sliced tuna) and some insalata mista (mixed salad). Normally we are fond on tuna, but this tuna was prepared too soft, too dry, colorless and quit tasteless! Maybe thawed too fast? The salad was fine and so were the wines.
We were really disappointed and hope that this experience was incidental and that we can expect a better meal and a better service when we may decide to come along another time in future!

Horrible restaurant!!
We were there for a dinner. The services were unengaged and on the verge of rude. It was not a dinner together, instead came the food came in installments, and after a very long time. The restaurant is a typical tourist trap. The food was boring and sloppily prepared and completely tasteless. Avoid this wretched place, there are plenty of good restaurants in Lerici, especially if you like fish.

We settled on this restaurant after walking around the square trying to find somewhere sightly away from the main tourist spot but offering a view of the harbour. The setting was right but that's about it.

Service was shocking but that's not a surprise given it's a tourist restaurant. However, the food was terrible - the worst we had on our trip through Italy. Avoid the Balsamic steak unless you like beef drenched in Balsamic vinegar.

It may have been a bad night but I didn't get that impression.
