My wife and I walked home from a late dinner, and spotted the long bar at Lord Nelson, and decided it was time for a night cab...and to our surprise the place had one of the most impressive wine cellars I've ever seen. Alex, the son of the english owner Ruth, turned out to be president of the wine society... More

During a 1-week stay in Chiavari we had a light lunch here on two days, sitting on the shadedterrace looking out over the bathing area and sea. Most enjoyable! Amiable and mature professional owners; wife is English.

We have been going to this place for few years and with so much variety of places to eat around this one has a particular value to us - we go there especially when we want a high quality service in top-end environment (including silver cutlery etc). We also like moderate size portions and good turnaround on the menu. Seafood... More

My husband and I enjoyed a peaceful lunch here on a warm Saturday afternoon in the summer. Our house white wine was crisp and cold and our sandwich and salad that we ordered from the bar menu arrived quickly and was very good. I would love to return for dinner. The restaurant is located at the end of the Chiavari... More

Lovely location at the end of the promenade, great decor, attentive waiters and good food. Returned the following evening for dinner but unfortunately was fully booked and I can appreciate why, our loss, we should have booked a table.

Although there had been no English review of the restaurant for some time, we had stopped there for a cocktail before dinner on several previous occasions and thought it looked a good spot for a celebration and had great views over the sea towards Portofino. Hown right we were. Our dinner last night was sensational - delicious and imaginitive food... More

This was an experience! I had read reviews on this restaurant and wanted to try it while in Liguria. We had found the restaurant very quickly. We were the only diners there for quite a while but we wanted to dine early. We are a chef's nightmare, vegetarians. It didn't phase this place! The food is divine. When it arrived... More

Celebrating being in Italy with special Italian friends, and fortunately it was British Mother's Day, our friends reserved a table for Sunday lunch. The food, and service was outstanding, the decor very traditional in keeping with the nautical theme of Lord Horatio Nelson and his ships. Highly recommend reserving a table if visiting nearby Portofino or Santa Margherita Ligure You... More
