Our dinner at La Ruota was one of the best of our trip to Italy. We were served a wonderful assortment of seafood, and every course was a new treat! The chef, who has taken over from his father, has maintained the extremely high standards for which this restaurant has been known.

If you are in the area this is the restaurant to visit. We spent two nice evenings here and will definitely return. Perfect food, romantic atmosphere, nice view, friendly young staff. For those willing to pay a bit more for quality. All other restaurants in Moneglia expect for Le Palme are just touristic traps. Here you have authentic Ligurian kitchen with a modern touch. Go there!

Having read great reviews on La Ruota, my wife and I wanted to try it for ourselves. We were not disappointed, and actually came back for a second meal during our stay in Moneglia. Fresh and beatifully prepared seafood, with top-of-the line service from Eduardo and his staff, and a wide selection of great wines. An absolute must while visiting Moneglia or the surrounding areas!

Living in Geneva, it's quite a treck down to Moneglia, but a must stop if only for the dinner at La Ruota any time we are in the Italian Rivera region! We came down for a weekend of hiking and a taste of bella italia, and were AGAIN delighted by Eduardo's warm welcome and always excellent dinner!

This is probably our 7th or 8th visit in the past 3 years (would be far more if we were closer!) and it continues to be a place we savor for special occasions and amazing meals. From the 6-7 courses (never can quite remember!) there were a few old favorites, and a few with a new twist- the Scampi tree had grilled lobster with it, and the salted fish came with a pleasant citrus sauce- lighter than the home-made mayonnaise we were accustomed to. Of course Eduardo changes things up depending on the season and availability.

Usually after you've had a great experience with a restaurant, it's hard to live up to the initial memory, but La Ruota never fails to delight!
