“immensly overrated”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2013

well, after reading the reviews on TA we were quite excited to go there, and I'm sad to say we were dissapointed.
I mean, the food is okay... but definately not the best arround.
The restaurant is overpriced, and the service (despite the smiles and effort) was slow and inadequate.
The ambience is more of a coffee-shop than a romantic restaurant, and an hour into the meal- we started to get excited about the idea of going back to the hotel, and watch some good-old Italian teli...
Not good enough.

“A Levanto Gem Focusing on Ethics and the Organic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

A bit more difficult to find as it isn't on the main streets, but well worth the search! They have a fantastic selection of Organic wines from small Italian vintners and delicious artigianale beers. The menu consists of traditional Ligurian-Italian recipes that the Owner/Chef has reinvented, giving them a modern spin and personal touch. All of the food was fresh and original.

There are a couple of vegetarian options, my favorite being the homemade gnocchi topped with a truffle-fondue sauce. To quote a friend, "It's like eating tasty little pillows!" There is a great selection of free-range meat dishes, the wild boar ragu' is to die for! And as far as fish goes there are prawn, shrimp and clam dishes that include homemade gigantic ravioli, diverse raw seafood options, and stuffed turbot.

The deserts were homemade as well, the Owner/Hostess does an imaginative take on typical desert dishes with an Italian flair that are the perfect finish to a great meal. Polite, friendly, and informative service... highly recommended for a nice night out that's a bit different from the rest!
