Good service, and funny anecdotes since we are Spanish and were making jokes with the waiters about Spanish/Italian/English restaurant words. Btw, fantastic linguine!!

In the heart of the old city of Ovada. A really nice place with good food for very reasonable prices. The waiters were nice and kind.

On a hot July sunday noon in Ovada we bumped into this restaurant with a great terrace on the main square in old town Ovada. Italy at its best: a rich choice of great dishes and a lively atmosphere with Italian family lunches on Sunday. This is why tourists love Italy ...

The place is nice enough, the service is not bad, but the food wasn't as good as we were hoping. First dishes were sort of OK, dessert was really disappointing (chocolate pie with cream).

Recent Italian reviewers have been underwhelmed, but when I had lunch there with two children, the overall experience was pretty good. The restaurant is in a piazza in the centre of town and has a high ceiling and large windows give it an airy feel. The pizzas had crispy bases, it depends how you like them, but we enjoyed them....
