“Avoid this place at all costs”
Reviewed May 26, 2012

Terrible service, mediocre food. We waited one hour for our antipasto and the wine arrived already opened. We gave up waiting for the rest, paid for what little we had and left. Go to the Tre Torri or Da Paolo in the main square. La Chiglia has terrible service, mediocre food. We waited one hour for our antipasto and the wine arrived already opened.

“A delicious discovery”
Reviewed May 25, 2012

Great service (not so common in Liguria) and great food. The "tagliolini ai gamberi con rucola e tartufo bianco" are a must. The "misto mare" starter a plus. Overall excellent fish. Oustanding quality and hearty portions. Warm and relaxed atmosphere. A delicious non turistic place in a very turistic area.

They have the best risoto al frutti di mare ... with an excelent value for money... but the service could be much warmer....

“Good service, good food!”
Reviewed May 12, 2011

The pasta with white truffle sauce is excellent, the best pasta dish I had in Italy!
We had to catch the bus back to La Spezia after dinner. Too bad we couldn't enjoy the food slowly. We told the waiting staff the bus schedule and they were very helpful and served the food very quickly.
