We made reservations the day before and were glad that we did. The restaurant filled quickly, mostly with locals shortly after our arrival. The antipasto di mare was a highlight along with the baked fish. Our servers were gracious and prompt, but were happy to...More

We had a wonderful and expensive lunch there . They could not speak a word of English which made the interaction hard. But the food was excellent and Resturant interior design was very nice

This was on top of the list. So surely we had to go there. It was a good meal and the service was as expected. The location is a bit out of town which actually it reflected on the prices. Therefore you get more value...More

In our 12 night stay in Portovenere we visited La Chiglia three times which shows how much we liked it. A 10/12 minute stroll along the promenade from the town centre brings you to a restaurant which is beautifully decorated and has a 'special' feel...More
