Had a couple of seafood pastas and main courses with a bottle of vermentino wine. Seafood was perfect. Calamari and mussels beautifully cooked - still moist and tasty. Pasta was also nicely cooked which has not always been the case in our trip to Italy. Overall very tasty. Same with the mains. Waiter provide excellent service. Attentive but not obtrusive.... More

We had many dishes here and it was all good until my lobster came out. A little disappointing as it was just a lobster set amongst some raw veg and fruits with a small saucer of tartar sauce to dip. Dish was fresh but just not a tasty combination. Good service.

It's not by chance that Bayon is the #1 restaurant of La Spezia! Everything was perfect, the flavour of the food, the service, the environment, everything. What surprised me the most is that there only was one waiter and one chef, and they managed everything masterfully. The price was really good for the dinner we had, only 45€ both and... More

I was a little bit reluctant to believe the previous reviews about this particular restaurant. However, it is sad to say that service really sucks. Quality of food is amazing. My congrats to the chef in every single dish presented. However, i can say it is not everything about the food. Top quality service must be a must, not to... More

Average, nothing special. When we asked for parmesan cheese for pasta dish, we were only told: "not recommended" and it was never brought to the table. 😀

Best Restaurant in Italy almost. Lobster is great. salmon tartar is fabulous. Wine Is perfect and everything's nothing close to expensive. Be careful not to miss the reserve, since it is hard to get a seat. be there on seven. Since the table is only flip once.

We did not expect what we found. A back street restaurant hidden from the public thoroughfare. This was undoubtedly one of the best meals I have had in an Italian restaurant taking quality, service, ambiance and most definitely the price. We could not believe how inexpensive this restaurant was for such a high standard of delicious food. I would strongly... More

One of the best meals we have had in La Spezia (so far) after 5 days of trawling. Plenty of great sea food on the menu - my husband had a very meaty half lobster with a veggie and fruit salad base. There is a very respectable and aggressively priced wine list e.g. Hoffstater Muller Thurgau for 20 euros. Primo... More
