We celebrated our first anniversary at Il Gambero, it is cauzy and elegant at the same time, in a quiet and romantic location on the sea front. Everything we ate was delicious, ( if you go don't miss the desserts! ). Staff is absolutely lovely, thanks to all of them we had an amazing time, we highly reccomend this restaurant :)

We had a brilliant lunch today with our kids outside today in this restaurant overlooking the quiet bay of Le Grazie just around the corner before arriving at Porto Venere. Where in high season you can forget to park for lunch in Porto Venere, in Le Grazie this shouldn't be a problem. We sat outside and we're served by a super friendly young waiter ( he might have been the son of the owner if I'm not mistaken from reading the other reviews). We had super super fresh seafood prepared in a very simple but utterly delicious way as only Italian cooks can do. With a minimum on ingredients but everything perfectly balanced and home made. The truffled pasta with shrimps was to die for and the tagliatelle with lobster simply the best I've ever tasted. Even the desserts were prepared with lovingly attention. If you want to eat perfect seafood at reasonable prices in a fantastic atmosphere served by a super friendly staff, search no more and book yourself a table at Il Gambero: I'll be back!

We ate Il Gamber last night. We ordered a pasta and lobster dish for the first course. Our waiter said it was his favorite. The pasta and sauce were decent, but there was barely any meat. It was all shells. The lady behind me seemed to have a lovely meal. The wine was great, and there was good service. I won't dine there again. I don't like to give bad reviews.

We live nearby, but this was the very best meal we've had in Le Grazie! The owners, Monica and Diego are so nice and helpful. The pictures should speak for themselves! This was the special night called La Noche en Blanco. We reserved a table at Il Gambero, and had pretty much front row seats for the music and dancing. Gorgeous experience.
