This is the only place during whole vacation in Italy where we have returned to have dinner second evening. We traveled with friends and kids, and everyone was extremely happy with the food and sincere attention of the staff that seemed to be a family rather than colleagues. Very warm and traditional atmosphere, affordable prices, great selection of food. Highly... More

We ate here 3 nights out of our 6 night trip and wished we had discovered it earlier. The menu was a typical Italian mix but the food was exceptional, the spaghetti carbonara being absolutely perfect as was the apple cake sweet course. For those who like seafood but aren't sure what to choose there was a tasting menu. The... More

We had asked reception at our hotel to reserve a table at this popular restaurant and a good job too,there was a queue of people waiting to dine. We were shown immediately to our table which overlooked the sea and our waitress, a lovely smiley lady took our drinks order whilst we checked out the menu. We shared two Carpaccio... More

Get here early. This place was packed with people waiting, while the restaurants on either side were empty - they take reservations. Again not fancy but really good food and service.

Had a fantastic meal here. Reasonably priced. Family of 4 all trying a different pasta dish. All extremely tasty. The restaurant was too busy for an outside sea view but happily sat inside. Very warm, no air conditioning but it didn't spoil our experience. The staff were very friendly and helpful. English menu available. Wish we'd have eaten there again.

The staff were very helpful, not pushy, wanted to engage in English. Menu was good, translated into English, pasta was wonderful, seafood was sublime, including the squid and octopus!! The drinks were generous (especially the G&T) and we were looked after really well. On one evening, we couldn't get in as it was so busy, speaks volumes.

We stayed in Rapallo for two nights and had dinner here both of those nights. The menu had a large variety from pastas to pizzas to seafood. The meals here were very reasonably priced and tasted delicious. We ate the ravioli, gnocchi and seafood pasta, all of which were very nice. This restaurant also had splendid panoramic views of Rapallo... More

We stayed in Rapallo for three nights and two out of three nights we ate here. Great service, great food and atmosphere. The tripadvisor map is a bit in correct, u will find this place further up the road near BBQ. Highly recommended.

We wanted meat lasagne and this place we thought did it. When we sat down and actually read the menu, it did not. We got it wrong. They do a local vegetarian type, so we started off a little disappointed. I had calamari, my wife ravioli bolognese which turned out to be a good substitute for the lasagne. The sides,... More

Tuna tagliata was superb. Beef was tasty. Reasonable prices. Strawberries were also fresh and sweet. Many locals were there and that is good sign for tourists.

This is a great Restaurant Pizzeria on the sea front in Rapallo. Barbara and her mother Antonieita are wonderful hosts and really know how to make their customers happy. There are always plenty of locals eating here which is always a great sign. We ate there 4 times last week and loved it every time. Prices are very good. Fantastic pizzas from €4, beautiful pasta dishs, and some great seafood. I would highly recommend Azzurra in Rapallo.
