“Little gem on the Ligurian Coast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

Having lived in Europe for the last 9 years, I love appreciating local culture but also often get homesick for the states. Jack's is the perfect combination of local gem and international escape. The food is mostly Italian but fused in a way that makes it interesting, different and delicious! The American breakfast on weekends is amazing, and so are the creative and strong cocktails. One might think this would be a tourist spot, but in fact it's one of the most popular local hangouts, since it's run by Camogli born-and-raised Stefano and his American wife Cassie. Apparently Jack's hosts all kinds of fun events, such as Halloween, Mexican night, Carnival and even a Man vs. Food contest. It's the perfect place to stop in to experience the real Camogli but also something new and exciting. Oh, and it's perfect for kids too-- Cassie let us know that it's named for their son Jackson, who can often be spotted running around and socializing. Loved it!

“A little American flavor in Italy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2014

Arrived in beautiful Camogli at 2:00pm and found most of the stores and restaurants were closed for their lunch break (12-4). Fortunately for starving travelers, we found JACK's which is located near the train station. Very clean, friendly atmosphere and a BAR that could put many to shame with the variety of drinks. After looking at the menu, we found they offered Hamburger, Sloppy Joes, Hot Dogs, Banana Bread and Chef salads. On weekends, they have breakfast burritos, pancakes, eggs/ham/bacon as well as Italian food. WOW, we were thrilled. Having traveled Europe for several weeks, we craved American food. I spoke to the Chef (Cassie) and we found out she's American who married Stefano from Camogli so they opened this Sports Bar/Cafe together. She knew exactly what an American food craving felt like and suggested the Long Beach Burger. It was AMAZING!!!! We went back for their weekend specials. Once a month, they have ethnic celebrations and have singing contest. Definitely a diamond in the Genoa area. Oh by the way, the Breakfast burrito is outstanding. We look forward to always include JACK's in our travels.
