Well, first the pros: the "Focaccia al Formaggio" is outstanding. But that's it, unfortunately. Upscale Restaurant, it wants to be the best in Recco, but: in a party of four the orders should be brought together to the table, and the dishes should arrive without...More

The famous focaccia is good, but I had better ones in the area. Good service, silverware and decor, but the food is not there. Grilled calamari were not crispy and a bit soggy. Cima was OK. Bianchetti were good. Wine by the glass had limited...More

This typical restaurant is an institution in the Liguria. Famous for the foccacia, every single dish we tried was perfect. They offered us some local wine (unfortunately I do not remember the name) that was superb. Service is excellent and the place big and comfortable....More

The wait staff was a bit distracted the day we visited but the focaccia made up for it. It's made here in Recco and it's the thinnest focaccia you'll ever see.Its made with stracchino, a type of soft, creamy cow's milk cheese. We had it...More

The restaurant where the Recco's cheese Focaccia is born. Absolutely delicious. Beside the focaccia, everything is very good. The staff is well trained and the owner pays time to every single guest.
