Picked restaurant at random while visiting center of city. The food was out of this world, started with appetizers of cheese plates with white wine, and continued with main course. Staff were exceptional with service and recommendations finishing with dessert that was fabulous. Can't wait to go back!!

We had dinner there outside on the terrasse which is in a nice place in the centre of town. Food was excellent, with the exception of the sesame tuna which was too much cooked in my opinion (I expected that cooked outside/raw in the centre cooking). Other than that, for two 2-course meals and a bottle of local wine the... More

It has great spot - just in the very center of La Spezia, very romantic. The house wine (white) was very good, Red one wasn't so good. The Pizza could have beeen better though.

This was our best dinner in La Spezia. We enjoyed dining outside on the piazza. Our meals were all very good. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We just regret to not stay enough in the city to come back.

We where very lucky to find this little pearl. The owner was a most pleasant person and guided us to some really great tasting food and wines. His wife was in the kitchen making us a wonderful spagetti with seafood. This place is highly recommended!

We had our doubts since this restaurant is located on a big piazza. Normally it means that you pay a lot for lousy food. But we were pleasently surprised. Very nice setting, reasonable prices and the food was very nice. We had a vongole, and some grilled tuna and it was excellent. Wine prices were fair as well, and we... More

My wife and I went here for the 45th anniversary of our first date. I had wanted to go to Bayon - the No. 1 restaurant in La Spezia, but it was closed - luckily. We were welcomed by a very loquacious and OTT Mein Host who acted as though it was the restaurant in the George V in Paris,... More

This place was awesome. The food was delicious and we tried many different things on the menu. All that we ordered was cooked perfectly. The waiter / host was a pleasure to be around. If in town definitely dine here. Also, he gave us a bottle of wine for the road with an opener.
