Description: Le parole chiave dello chef Rollino: INNOVARE: "mi piace proporre piatti che abbiano radici nel nostro territorio ligure, spingendomi fino ai grandi classici della cucina italiana. La semplicità, i gusti e gli ingredienti delle preparazioni della tradizione, rivisitati secondo la mia personale visione. Amo definirla "nuova cucina ligure"." MATERIE PRIME: "frutta e verdura di prima scelta, solo pesce freschissimo pescato localmente, gelato artigianale e carne proveniente da i migliori macellai italiani. Prepariamo pane, pasta e focaccia utilizzando farine 100% italiane, selezionate."

Had a fantastic night at La Femme. We enjoyed the five course menu.
We chose a local white wine, after recommendation from the head chef. No regrets!!

Me and a friend ate at la femme today. We enjoyed the service in the beginning but felt as if the service declined as our time went on which was dissapointing. The food was good we had the cod fish and a selection of bread to start. The truffle raviolis was also great. Id say the price for both at 40 euro was hefty so it is better to take the 5 course at 48 euros. Nice ambiance very clean decor and great food presentation.

We had lunch at La Femme together with 3 of our children and our friends (2 more adults and one child). Roberto, the chef, is in our opinion a great cook, a very friendly character and, above all, one who takes pride in what he does. Meat and fish were just great but, guys, YOU MUST try his tortelli liquidi, which are basically a home made pasta filled in with a combination of molten potato and truffle... each bite unleashes pure joy and flavour. Indescribable, must abs try! We had never visited before but, if we are in the neighbourhood, we shall return! We will recommend to our friends. Bravo Roberto!

A nice evening above the Mediterranean in the nice atmosphere of the La Femme. We had menu degustiazione for one and Antipasti and secondo piatto separately. It was prepared accordingly but a little design-oriented more than extraordinary taste. The pulpo crosta though was excellent, the different dips/cremes ( as well as those accompanying the raw fish platter (nigiri) nevertheless were boring. Vitello tonnato was a good portion with lots of tonno taste. The roasted fish then was very tasty and excellent together with Ligurian vegetables. The desert was again a little boring and unambitious. Over all we had a very nice evening, service was friendly and efficient, but to be honest we had a little higher expectation-maybe next time.

I have visited several times throughout the years this restaurant, the strong points are the chief's personality and his research to modify and improve dishes from the tradition. I have never been disappointed on this, also the chef is talkative and often stops by the table to explain the evolution of this or that dish. I love this kind of backstage and every year try to sample new proposals. From this standpoint I suggest to try one of the Degustazione or what they are called menus, typically an excellent and well balanced (quality and quantity) sampling of the chief's expertise. The wine list is good. A weak point (I experienced this a few times in the past) is the service speed, during weekends or when the restaurant is crowded waiting times can become consistent, so my suggestion is to go during the week. The price is not low but entirely reasonable for the quality. Do not come if you are over-hungry - the place is for quality, not for quantity. As a last point, the location is fascinating, with a view at the sea above a swimming pool. Good parking, if this is your problem...
