Tired of travelling so went upstairs to the Hotel Restaurant. Beautiful, romantic setting with incredible views. Impeccable service, friendly English speaking staff. Limited menu but what we had was perfect .

Thank Shameem A

We were guests at the hotel and dined at Le Cupole on the first night. Despite the rain, we were able to sit on the covered balcony looking down across the bay. Great view!

Deciding on the six-course tasting menu it was a delight from start to finish. Lovely, leisurely service and beautiful food. What a relaxing way to while away a few hours with plenty of opportunity for conversation between courses.

The ravioli, steak and velouté were the highlights, with a delicious dessert to finish. Choosing the accompanying wines took us on a flight through prosecco, Portofino rosé then lighter and heavier reds finished off with a perfectly-matched dessert wine.

A real treat.

The restaurant has wonderful views from the terrace. The food is merely decent and the service is unbelievably slow. We ordered the tasting menu (2 out of 5 dishes were excellent, the rest were meh) and it took them almost 2.5 hours to serve us. But the staff was obliging and friendly.

Dear Sirs,
We learn his review and apologize if he judged the service very slow. A six-course tasting menu plus an appetizer will mean an average of two hours and thirty minutes in average ... we will try to make treasures in any case of his claims to improve our day to day service. Best regards

The downside of this restaurant is that the sophisticated food is served in really small portions ! The upside is that the views, particularly from the terrace outside, are quite breath-taking. The Cupole is on the fifth floor of the Grand Bristol Hotel, just outside the centre of Rapallo. It is ideal for watching marina activity a kilometer or more across the bay, and on balmy Summer evenings you just might not notice the size of the portions on your plate ! Having said that, the service is attentive, the wines are not overpriced, and the chef is far from incompetent. Worth a visit, perhaps not a repeat.
