We came to Taverna Al 29 strictly based on reviews. We tend to like to dine by the sea but the reviews were so outstanding we decided to go with it. I wish there was a bigger word for "experience" because I would undoubtedly use it. From the moment we arrived, (we were greeted on the street) we were treated like family by Natale and his staff. Taking his guidance on recommendations is the way to go. The aperitif they serve has become a new favorite at home for us and I have actually dreamt about the amazing sheep cheese ravioli more than once since our visit! Natale's fabulously engaging personality, along with his wife's unbelievable cooking definitely make this experience an ultimate dining extravaganza. Just when you think it cannot get any better, Natale pulls out his flavourful grappas and the fun just continues. Whether you like grappa or not it is worth trying). The only disappointment to our evening was that it ended. I hope my life takes me to this little hidden gem in San Remo once again. Thank you so very much! xo from Canada!
