Nice view over the sea and a great place to have a drink... We came there to drink something. We had to wait over 20 minutes, although the restaurant was empty. The staff is unfriendly and we felt not welcome.

We had the frita mista. The shrimp were so small as to be invisble. One mussel. The rest was forgetable (and regrettable). We ordered the grilled peppers with olives. Oily with two measly olives. And the caprese salad. We asked ourselves why the chef didn't care what was sent to us? The tomato was hard, the cheese was unidentifiable, and... More

We had a great lunch on the terrace of this beatyfull place. From your table we could see Portovenere and the Palmaria and Tino islands. The owner make available some sunbeds near the sea and it is possible to have a swim just 1 meter from the restaurant. The food is good but not outstanding. The better dish we tryed... More

The location is one of the most scenic of this amazing coast, it's worth half'bill. The dishes are quite good, sicurely not on the top . Don't expect to find a elegant and refined restaurant, the service is friendly but not cured in the details and on weekends to much slow. The most of the fishes are good tasting .... More

This restaurant is in a wonderful location under the castle in Lerici - surrounded by water and so peaceful. There is one problem, however - the food is awful (and expensive). Go for a drink and make the most of the lovely sunset but eat at your peril. Don't say you weren't warned

You'd eat here every day just for the view. Sitting on the balcony overlooking the Mediterranean, sipping a cold glass of their house white whilst enjoying some fresh seafood makes for a lovely way to spend a lazy lunch in the middle of summer. The views can't be faulted nor the value for money. The antipasta was a delight however... More

This was a sentimental journey for me. I was here sixty-one years ago when the restaurant was a bistro built by the parents of the present owner. (We would dance to scratchy records and nurse a Peroni beer the entire evening. Sgr Dilucca didn't seem to mind.) The restaurant was fully booked for lunch, but the hostess kindly sat my... More
