We dined at this sea-side restaurant with seating directly beside Piazza Garibaldi on the sea-side boardwalk after the LerICYFF indoor-cycling event which was held on the piazza before (and during) our dinner. The location was quaint, the food was reasonable, and the prices were on the par with other restaurants in the area. The waiting staff was extremely efficient and... More

We had another place in mind for lunch but it was closed on Wed. Decided just to walk and find a spot based on menus. The pastas were tasty. Service was a bit unfriendly compared to most of our other Italy meals. We ate relatively early since it started raining. We were the only people in the restaurant for most... More

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel, for some strange reason. We should have walked away when the first encounter with the waiter was rather strange. She was extremely stressed and unfriendly. The service was terrible through out the night and made us feel uncomfortable. Some of the dishes were ok, but the vegetables were cold (they tasted good), the... More

After an eternity of finding a parking spot, we discovered the place we wanted to go for lunch was closed, so we wandered the streets of Lerici and randomly decided on Al Cantiere (well, kind of randomly: we saw a lot of local people inside, which is always a good sign). The food ended up being the best we had... More

The further east from Camogli one goes, the less fish-with-fins one gets on a plate of fried fish. I guess that's the way the cookie crumbles/what is caught locally. Here it was shrimps, baby squid or was it tiny octopus [see photo - sorry, little things!] and calamari but no actual finned fish. But that, with the bread and chips... More

Showed this to the waiter .. who took it away saying he would bring to the attention of chef/owner... never saw the waiter or the wasp again.... know things happen (wasp flies in).. would... More

Excellent food, excellent service and good value. In October it is great to be eating outside - there are plenty of tables but best to arrive early as it is very popular.

The setting is perfect; right on the water. The pizza is good, but nothing special. But The service, and this may just apply to one waitress, was terrible. She made no effort at all; in fact she pretty much just tossed things on the table, without even a smile. She dropped the check on the table while passing by. Its... More

This was our second visit, first one in the summer and the second in December, both times for a lunchtime Pizza. Our preferred time to visit is in the summer when you can sit outside and enjoy the fabulous view across the Marina towards the castle and to Portovenere.The restaurant is modern and well appointed, although it is a little...

I am a local to the town, but I was with relatives from abroad. We chose this restaurant simply because it had a few non-fish dishes, as one of our party had allergy problems with seafood. Service was on and off: one of the waiters kind and almost-efficient, the other uncaring and slow. We didn't order a full meal because... More
