Great, unpretentious seafood restaurant, in a warm family atmosphere, on the edge of the historic port. From antipasto to dessert, everything was fresh and authentic , including the hospitality.

We came here because our host recommended it and the high reviews of others. We tried the tomato and anchovy appetizer. Sorry, anchovies are not for me...not saying they were bad, but at least I tried them! The fresh fish was excellent as well as the pasta pesto. The 2 wait staff while we were there did not speak any... More

We were lucky to have dinner at the terrace late October and really enjoyed the beautiful harbour view from the restaurant. But the food and service were even better. We ordered two set menus as we couldnt decides what to choose. What they served was simply delicious. If you re looking for a traditional good quality fish restaurant in Camogli,... More

I love going to restaurants like Vento Ariel. I would never have gone if it weren't for my host who knew the way to Camogli. The meal was delicious seafood with a wonderfully fresh white wine.

We came to Vento Ariel with American friends of ours who have been living in Camogli for several years, and left with heightened confidence in their gastronomic judgment. Vento Ariel combines elegant appointment, exquisite cooking, and a wonderful setting on the Porticciolo walk facing Camogli's little marina, the sea, and the sunset. My bride enjoyed a traditional Ligurian primo piatto,... More

This was one of our favorite dining experiences in Italy on our two week trip. We made reservations for 8PM (emailed them on Facebook!) and had a seat right on the harbor and watched the sunset throughout our dinner. We each got 2 courses and a dessert and everything was impeccable- the seafood risotto was out of this world and... More

We celebrated our sons birthday at this restaurant in the seaside town of Camogi about 30 minutes from Rapallo..Vento Ariel was recommended by 2 local people and we're glad we went. Excellent seafood, pasta, and drink/wine selection. The owner Davide made us feel welcome and the service was top drawer. We had a great evening at Vento Ariel.

We decided to eat here on the strength of reviews and it's lovely location in the small fishing harbour. We had spent the day in Camogli visiting from nearby Santa Margherita Ligure by train. We were not disappointed. We arrived without reservation and the staff were very friendly and gave us a table outside in a good spot. We had... More

As this was the first time we'd visited this restaurant we chose the set, fixed-price (€35) menu. It couldn't have been a better choice, with the authentic taste of Italian food for each of the 4 courses (3 fish, plus desert), and with wine, water and coffee also included in the price. Lovely view across the harbour towards the sunset... More

Nice spot down by the harbour where you can watch the world go by. We enjoyed the catch of the day, well cooked and simply presented. Helpful staff, good food, perhaps you pay a small premium for the location but come on you're on holiday!
