Setting is adjacent to an industrial port. Service was poor, brought several incorrect orders. Food was well prepared but over priced. Won't be back.

Braccioforte is a piece of Imperia history. Founded over 100 years ago and run by successive generations of the same family, it is a byword for the freshest catch in town, having the fish auction hall next door. Super polite, almost deferential, welcome and service, plush inside and an outside with gorgeous views over the moored dream yachts and the... More

It has been a few months since that trip, yet all of us remember this restaurant as one of the best places we ate! On that day, we were driving from Cervo to San Remo and hit the traffic. Decided to stop for lunch and looked at TA for ideas. Followed the map and found this great place. What a... More

This was the second visit for my wife and I and again the food was out of this world. The Metre Dee is very knowledgeable and his recommendations are always good. We had the seafood "La grigliata mista" which was cooked to perfection and contained Prawns, 2 kinds of fresh fish, scallops, langoustines, squid, etc. Absolutely delicious. Friendly service right...

Menue not existent. Waiter/Owner explaining dishes... You are committed to the words. However, quality and taste good but not matching the high quality ambiente. Price to high with 60€ per Person (fish/meat) inclusive 1 bottle of white wine.

There is plenty of competition along the waterfront in Oneglia now, but this fifth generation restaurant proudly claiming heritage back to 1892 is holding its own. Some reviewers are put off by a menu recited by the owner. They fail to point out that he does so effortlessly in English, French and Italian and is rightly pleased with the high... More

We were quite surprised when the waiter (who we then learnt was the owner) approached our table asking us what we wished to eat without showing us a menu. Instead he recited the dishes (far too fast and making us dizzy) urging us to decide. Food was good and wine acceptable - in a nice elegant setting - but the... More

We had a delicious dinner at Chez Braccioforte just in front of the fisherboats at the harbour in Oneglia. The fishmeny we had were so nice prepared and tasted very good. A very nice experience.

Typical of the region, excellent seafood, light very fresh fish caught in the ligurian sea, and very savoury. Consistently impeccably cooked. The restaurant is not so nice, a bit heavy and the service is just OK, unless you know the owner.
