Small, 12 table ristorante off the main square with excellent seafood selections. The food was expertly prepared and the waiters attentive and personable. We will return.

We were recommended this little place by a very friendly Spanish lady who we met in Lerici. We weren't disappointed. We had the dishes of the day. My gnocchi with beans, potato and pesto was delicious. My little boy didn't want lunch just to go to the beach but luckily the lady who runs the place had lots of pens... More

After 10 days in the area with plenty of seafood, it was nice to dine in a restaurant where you could eat things that necessarily could not swim. Beautiful and romantic atmosphere, friendly staff and excellent food. We'll be back!

I liked the look of Il Fagolo as it is tucked away from the main square where all the tourists go and you can sit outside in a shaded area without the direct sunlight that plagues too many other restaurants in Lerici. I like the sun, but my partner suffers the heat, and I don't care for eating with sunglasses... More

Just perfect! Intimate restaruant, very nicely located under some arcades just near to the main square of Lerici. The food was good, original and reasonably priced. Just what we were looking for on this hot summer day, for lunch!

Fantastic little restaurant. We can only recommend it to anyone visiting Lerici. The food is outstanding and the service is excellent. If you aren't into the whole "frutti di mare" thing, this is the place to go.

We were looking for a meat restaurant as I don't like fish. A local restaurant suggested this. It's tucked into a corner of a tiny square off the main front. It has about six tables inside. One woman served, the other cooked at the open kitchen. A brilliant selection of cheeses and jam to start. My girlfriend had a pork... More

this is a great place to to to when you've had enough of anything that swims. The meat here is great!!! Warning - the portions are quite large. I had a mixed antipasto and it included rabbit, sausage cooked in mustard, osso bucco, plus two other things. If there are non-meat eaters in your party - not to worry -... More

One great meal doesn't make a great restaurant so it's good to go back and see if the quality is maintained. This wonderful restaurant set within the ancient walls in the oldest quarter of Lerici has gone from strength to strength. Already a devotee, I visited with friends, promising them a gastronomic experience different from any other restaurant in Lerici.... More
