The restaurant has a great view of the Sestri Levante bay. There is no room outside. However, the windows are big and you can see the marina. Private small parking. Food is delicious. I had the cruditá (different kinds of raw fish) and the pesce al sale with the available daily fished. Excellent.

Clearly the best place for fresh fish in Sestri. Big & light, lots of people. I think also familyrun. Tagliolini with lobster, bit pricy, but soooo good. I had the Gamberi. The dishes had a completely different taste but both delicious.

I have been going to this restaurant for a few years and although it is a simple setting and they unfortunately don't have an outside, the view on the Sestri Levante Bay is beautiful and the food is always good. They make the best 'pesce alla ligure' (fish ligurian style) I have ever had with crackling potatoes and olives and pine nuts. Their mixed fried fish plate is light and delicious and they also have an amazing steak cooked on a fireplace. It is also a great place to take kids as they will make you whatever you ask for them. The service is cheerful and kind and efficient and they have a tray with fish so you can pick your own catch of the day.

Set on the Ligurian coast and near the local fisherman's wharf this restaurant is a must visit. I have gone five times and have never been disappointed. Great service and superb food. Try the warm seafood salad and the baked fish. Even Italian standards like gnocchi are exceptional. And just let the waiter select a wine.
