We went to Flipper on a recommendation from friends and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent and staff was great. When we're done they treated us to a limoncello. Overall a,great stop. Only criticism is there are a lot of people trying to sell you junk when outside sitting, like knock off hand bags and sunglasses. You just... More

What a lucky find in a very crowded area full of tourist traps. Staff were friendly and welcoming and the food was delicious. I asked for the mixed antipasto to start -it was great. The pasta dishes were delicious-definitely would return!

Great seafood, ate spaghetti ai frutti di mare, was very good, can recommend (14e I think). My friends had lasagne and penne alla carbonara - both were OK but nothing special. Good tiramisu (if somewhat too heavy...) Housewine was good, service was good. Definitely recommend it if you want to have seafood! Pay in mind you might need to book... More

Went for lunch in Flipper restaurant in San Remo. We liked the penne pesto a lot. Mmmm. The pizza of the house was special, because the ingredients (ruccola, italian beef carpaccio and parmesan cheese) were not baked in the oven , but spread on the warm pizza bottom. Something we were not used to. Not bad at all, though the... More

This place seems to be the busiest spot in the area. It was quite a wait to get in, even given it was the end of September, and all the surrounding restaurants were relatively empty. I had the pasta carbonara... one of the best I have had. Hubby had a pizza, and as far as pizza in Italy goes, it... More

All said in the topic, it was good but too expensive. I had Spagetti with scampi, 25 Euro but just 2 big and 5 small Shrimps :(
