“Bravo Chef!”
Reviewed October 12, 2013

We were referred to the Restaurant by the staff at our inn and after reviewing the other choices selected the Trattoria to our great good fortune! The chef is not only a gifted cook, he is also charming and makes his guests feel welcome and special. We had pork in Black truffle sauce and polentina parmigiana which was heavenly! The tagliatelle with coniglio ragu was delicious as well!
Their wine list was extensive and well priced and their wine offerings are displayed thought the dining room so if you see something you like, you can ask for it! You cannot go wrong here! Our waiter was engaging and exceedingly polite.

“A real surprise!”
Reviewed May 30, 2013 via mobile

The location isn't the best for tourists but the restaurant seems to be very much appreciated by locals so maybe they don't really need us, tourists...
Anyway, if you are in Sestri, try to visit nevertheless. The quality of food and service is excellent. We had a bit of trouble first with the menu because it's in italian only. The waiter couldn't speak any english but soon the chef/owner appeared from the kitchen and explained us everything in good english. All ingredients seemed very fresh and food was prepared with real passion and care. The prices are maybe a bit higher than you'd expect from a suburban eatery but somehow we were served with a lot more drinks than what showed on the bill. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience!

“An unexpectedly great chef restaurant”
Reviewed May 18, 2013

We were staying in Sestri Levante for 5 days and after too many in the best case mediocre touristic restaurants, we finally found this place on the day before last. And came back again the day after.
It was Italians-only, and you could tell that there were many regular customers, according the chat they had with the chef. It is the chef restaurant and the menu is Italian but with a personal touch.
Everything we had was delicious - home made pasta stuffed with herbs with nuts and pine nuts sauce melted in the mouth (don't worry, it was properly cooked al dente); the gnocchi with duck ragu were probably the best we had in Italy (and we've been here for almost two years). The duck breast in Porto wine and apples was soft, juicy and the portion was huge too. The lamb chops with pistachio nuts were aromatic and soft. The desserts go beyond the usual tiramisu-panna cotta-ice cream choice that you usually find here and are of excellent quality too. Try baba Genovese with fruit and strawberries.
Good choice of fairly priced local wines too.
In general, the prices here are very fair, and you pay for dinner less than you would pay in the restaurants in the historic center, and the quality is incomparable. The service is attentive but not imposing.
It's located in the residential area, but it's just a couple of minutes drove from the center, and it's totally worth it.
We highly recommend the place!

“Delightful Dining off the Tourist Circuit”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

We enjoyed a delightful lunch at this classy trattoria located in town, away from the beach. Plenty of free parking in lot across the street. Friendly, helpful staff. Clientele (except us) was all Italian. Easy to understand menu used common terminology. Excellent selection, primarily local seafood. We split an antipasto plate, skipped the pasta or soup course, and enjoyed two seafood entrees. The food and service were outstanding. Total bill, including two glasses of house wine apiece (next time we'll order a carafe), was 62 euros. We'll be back next time we are in Sestri Levante.
