Taster menu - (Photo attached) We ate here just before the restaurant closes for the winter. It was wonderful. We decided to have the 7 course fish taster menu (170 euros per person) This ended up being 11 courses with all the additional little courses that the chef sent out. Each course was a delight - well presented, cooked to... More

We ate at the Piccolo Principe during our stay at the Principe di Piemonte as the first part of our honeymoon. We were seated on the covered terrace with a view towards the mountains and the port where the lighthouse had not long started for the evening. From the start it was a true fine dining experience, my wife was... More

This was the best meal we have ever had in Italy. It's not cheap but it never is in a two Michelin star restaurant. The food was excellent- innovative- full of flavour - including Tuscan Sushi - beef carpaccio - see photo. The location is pretty cool - on the roof top of the hotel by the pool.

After a long day's trip in the marble mountains and driving along the Ligurian coast, we found this elegant restaurant, and without knowing that Il Piccolo Principe has two Michelin stars, we came there for an ordinary family dinner which turned out to be an extraordinary experience. All of our a la carte dishes were delicious, and we also got... More

This was our first evening at the Grand Hotel Principe di Piemonte and we decided to try this roof top restaurant before our daughter and family arrived the next day looking for genuine pizzas. After a glass or two of good Prosecco, we opted for the "Degustazione dal Mare" which with the amuse bouche, the chef's treat of fresh oyster... More

Whilst visiting Italy on our romantic eataly experience we ate some fantastic food. This was by far the best meal of our holiday but then you would expect that! The food was stunning and service excellent. The restaurant was quiet as it was a Sunday evening but we still had a great time! The only issue I did have was... More
