“Superb”
Reviewed August 9, 2014

A cloud burst happened just as we entered a beach front front restaurant. Management then shifted the diners seated outside inside and apologised to us they could not seat us. The rain was bucketting down as we ran down the deck to find the stairs leading up to the the street above. We were very wet and just so lucky when we entered the Bacicio they had a spare table. We were impressed with bacicios great service, food and beverages. Fortunately it took a couple of hours for the rain to pass, so we enjoyed the good wine, beer and food in a leisurely manner. A great place and I am sure we had a more enjoyable time than the patrons on the fancy waterfront joint below.

“What a great food!!!”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

We stopped at the bar in lunch time just because they had a stand near the street with snacks of dumpling stuffed with seafood and fried calamari rings and sardines.which was very nice.

At evening time, we looked for a restaurant and we decided to check with Tripadvisore "near me" and it was right beside us - the same one from lunch time. So we have decided to give it a chance and - what a great surprise!!
The decoration is very unique rusty plates and tables like barrels . recommend dishes:
For first dish we took mixed plate of mixed fish kind of "possalo" " Azura" and "Skea" special dish amazing test!!!
for the main course had two kinds of spagetti Bacicio - and Corsara. both were very very good!!
we took white wine of the house and we loved every bite.
the all cost was 35euro and it was fantastic!!

“Another fantastic meal at Bacicio”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

It's been a year since I've visited Portovenere, and once again, Bacicio did not disappoint me. No, instead, they outdid themselves. First, the spaghetti with mussels- light, perfectly cooked, scrumptious. If you aren't a mussel lover, this dish will convert you. Second course, octopus. Again, an unexpected delicacy. I've eaten at several locations in Portovenere over the years, many of them more than once. None of the others compare to Bacicio.
One more accolade for Bacicio- everyone treats you like you are their friend, one of the family. Friendly, welcoming, warm, perfect service.
Make this a must do on your Portovenere list. In fact, come to Portovenere just for a meal at Bacicio.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed May 12, 2014 via mobile

Tucked away in Via Capellini away from the waterfront is this little pasta and pizza gem. I suspect it is great for lunches but we tried dinner and were not disappointed. A large menu with an oddly appealing pirate theme and lots of anchovies used in serious ways. The star of our meal was squid ink tagliatelle with anchovies, olives and tomatoes. This was very big on flavor and perfectly cooked. Main courses mostly around €10. Great value.
