This was a beautifull Place With really good Food and friendly staff. The prices were affordable and The service was flexible (as we har children, which for Food that was not on The meny). We had seafood pasta and The monkfish which was excellent. We ate outside on a beautifull terrasse surrounded by trees and flowers With a lovely view towards The sea.

Don't google maps this place- the location is wrong enough to take us 20 minutes walking up and down steep lanes and finally having to call the place and walk round to the port elevator entrance.
Once there....awesome food, amazing view (sit by the Windows) and a very kind old waiter who got us gluten free bread. We both had fish. Awesome.

From this restaurant, the view is MAGNIFICENT. The travel through a tunnel and then an elevator to get to this place was fun. A unique dining experience with delightful Italian Cousine

Of course we knew the place, but we never had one good occasion for going to "Ristorante ai Castelli". Now we know that every occasion would be good for repeating the experience! Excellent food, in a unique location. The ambience is elegant but cozy at the same time. The dishes are all amazingly presented and prepared. You'll be sorry to eat them for not ruin the compositions :). The ingredients are fresh Ligurian and mediterranean ones, and the preparation is a delicate and charming combination of tastes, colors and perfumes. We were four and we tried four different "antipasto" and 4 different main courses among "primi and secondi piatti". Antipasto were for me the most special dishes and my favorite was "polpo rosticciato" but everything we tried really deserved a taste. I would just go again and choose what inspire me that day, and I can bet I would be delighted anew. A special mention has to be done also for the desserts, amazingly presented and delicious!
A first-rate service, the wine suggestion of the sommelier and the spectacular view made our dinner a very special one.
A last tip: if you can, ask where to go for a smoke or some fresh air: the small terrace on the right side in the way back to the entrance has the best view ever!

The service is excellent but a little slow. Who needs to rush when there is such a great view? The food is well presented and tasty with some wonderful combinations by the chef. Good choice of Italian wines and a knowledgeable sommelier. The price tag is high but worth it.
