An unpretentious gem off the beaten track, but amazing food, ambiance and service.Highly recommend the sea bass ravioli with octopus or any pasta with truffle. They also do a large portion sea food grill or meat BBQ all excellent. Will visit many more times. Buona

Its typical local restaurant close to Finale Ligure, Really tasty white pizza (pity no tomato ones), big choice of pasta, steaks, and some seafood. Great atmosphere with locales. We got lucky with no reservation but for weekends you really need it to get sited.
