We went here for dinner on a cold January Monday evening. Glad to find a place open and one that is so welcoming and cosy. Its in the middle of the maze of la Pigna streets. We had the €10 set menu with mixed antipasto then a pasta dish. All good home made food, very tasty. We then had a... More

Genuin simple food. The local pasta dish is old and very modern when vegitarianism trends: flat spagetthi with boild potatoes and pesto. Had the bill been a couple of euros higher my mark would have been three. And probably if the old town had been better maintained and lively. But after going up and down the stairs in this doomed...

Fabulous authentic Ligurian food. This restaurant has been passed on for generations. "Copa de Mula" is hands-down the best dessert I have ever eaten- anywhere! Friendly staff and fun atmosphere. A MUST VISIT!

This was a restaurant that we stumbled upon wandering around the old town of Sanremo. Affectionately (and accurately) referred to as "La Pigna" or the pinecone, the old town of Sanremo is very atmospheric. It has lots of winding streets and narrow medieval alleyways and this restaurant is at the intersection of a couple of them. Not too far from... More

Amazing place, hidden somewhere in old San Remo. Managed by the pleasant Italian family, this restaurant provides you with a true Italian atmosphere and delicious food of Ligurian origin. Homemade wine is good as well. I'd recommend this restaurant for everyone, who like such cozy places, for those who're looking for delicious food and authentic atmosphere but not for this... More

A great find in Sanremo's Pigna district. The reviews are accurate. It is a simple, family style restaurant with delicious regional and some not so regional offerings and great value. The service is great, in the summer we were served by the owner's son, who is a student on a baseball scholarship in the United States and will likely be... More

Lovely quaint restaurant in old part of city which we stumbled upon whilst taking a walk during the day. Took a note of the street and went back that night. Simple menu and delicious typical Italian food. Worth a try 😀

We stopped here during a visit to the old town. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful, to the extent of getting us better chairs without our asking. The food was excellent and great value. Don't miss this lovely place if you are looking for a spot to sit in the sun or in the shade.

Located in the old part of the city, you will find this small restaurant to be a romantic and authentic place. The food is excelent and you have a large choice of local dishes and more traditional Italian dishes. Friendly service and prices that leave you with some money in your pocket to do other things. I ate here with... More
