If you like good sea food, this is the place. The starter sea food platter was great. Main courses did not disappoint, the cooking was Ligure style, very well cooked and presented. Price wise, very reasonable. I personally like the waiter style of looking after us, helpful and yet not intrusive.

Amazing service and value for money. Huge plates of authentic Italian whole fish dishes and seafood. The owner was super nice with amazing service and recommended nice things to eat/drink.

this place has wonderful food, an excellent cook with service that is just right. the quality of the food is outstanding, we have returned here every year when we visit Liguria. Better to reserve on week-ends. Difficult for parking but worth it.

Tasty food for a good price, a place not touched by time and food like it should be. No thrills, no fancy stuff but the right stuff. Real food for a very correct price. We had a taste of the grilled vegetables, the spaghetti a la vongole and the gamba's. All with its own taste and colour. definitely worth a... More

We shared the Bronzino baked in the sea salt crust again melts in your mouth with perfect seasoning! Staff... More

We went for a weekend to Finale Ligure and we were advised by a local lady to go this restaurant if we wanted to eat local dishes. It was a very simple place, clean and not very big. It is run by 2 brothers, the problem was when we arrived it was 1.30 pm and apparently they were closing the... More

Those guys probably earned already too much money. If they do not want guests - why they open at all? We've entered at 12:45 on a weekday, low season, seen some tables inside free and heard from a boy working there "tutto prenotato!". Then I ask for outdoor table, but the boy said "arrivoooo.." in such a bored voice that... More

The place is fully booked at the season night after night, it means something, isn't it? We enjoyed both the atmosphere and food. Freshest tuna from local market is excellent both as carpaccio and grilled, seafood soup is the event which will make your dinner unforgettable. Nice selection of wines.
