The food here is very good, slightly small portions but the price is one of the highest in the area. My meal was very good and flavourful but my wife's was rather bland. We expected better for the price.

I have eaten here many times and amazed with the few negative comments. Very small and like eating in a wine shop,just great. Sea food always excellent. Yes,the wine list is amazing and the Proprietor is keen to advise.

We were very disappointed. The Fish soup didn't have a single piece of fish in it. Pasta was ok. The Steak (medium ordered) was burnt black outside and completly raw inside. Mashed potatos were allright. According to our travel guide should the Restaurant owned by a friendly, happy couple (Man in the Restaurant, wife in the kitchen). We think both... More

Small restaurant located in city center, with a vast wine list, covering all major regions of Italy. The kitchen isn't bad either, and the meat was exceptional well cooked. It helps with a little Italian, but english works in worst case.

I read a lot of positive reviews of this place and decided to give it a chance. I took the spaghetti with anchovies, portion was really small and not delicious. I was hungry after my dinner. My friend took a fish, it was ok,but again too small. Prices are too high for food. Wine was nice though.

Great food and ambiance and a welcoming host. I can't honestly say exactly what I had because I joined an Italian lady who was a frequent visitor and I invited her to order for me. A first course of a fried anchovie type fish with zucchini blossoms and a second pasta course. It was excellent. They recommended a wine to... More

I really liked this restaurant. Lovely food and a great wine list. A welcoming host. I was taken there by a resident of Chiavari. I wanted to go back again to taste all the other wonders on the menu. One day I shall!

Very simple: if you're ever in Chiavari, you cannot miss this! We walked in expecting your average Ligurian trattoria and came out satiated and smiling. The sformato and baccala mantecato were worthy of white tablecloth restaurants, the pasta con salsicce and broiled fish were up there with the best. Not to mention the amazing homemade desserts. What a meal! Have... More
