I had not visited Il Saraceno in winter before. The food is good, the wine too, and the service fine as well. The clientèle are the smart set!

I admit that we were spoiled after dining 3 nights at Restaurant Aurora at Lago di Como. But a simple pasta can make us very happy as well. We ordered 'crudo di parma' with parmigan cheese as a starter to share for 4 persons. As a main course the children wanted a pasta with tomatoes and basil. We ordered fresh sea brassem.

The crudo was mediocre but the cheese was simply tasteless and too young. Maybe enough to grind it to be used as a pasta topping but nothing more. Pointing that out to the owner was a big mistake. The rest of the evening we were simply ignored by him and his team. The cheese however was not charged to us.

The pasta was disappointing. Tasteless and no basil to be found. We have had simple housemade pastas with tomatoes and fresh basil in other places that was just superb. Not at Saraceno however. This was tourist food and even then.

The fish was alright but nothing spectacular. For €21,- per fish one may expect a bit more. No one asked if the food was ok, no one asked if we wanted another drink. The only objective of this restaurant was to clear tables asap and to bring in the next batch of ignorant customers. In this they succeeded but we will never return.

Mi spiace per lei ma noi clienti ignoranti non pensiamo di averli , se voleva le coccole e un servizio solo per lei andava in hotel a 5 stelle anche se dubito che posti dove per due spaghetti al pomodoro e basilico e il branzino che ha preso evidentemente perché pensava di pagarlo 7,5 euro ma solo perché ha ignorato la dicitura hg che sta a significare ettogrammo qui non c'è ne sono. Buone vacanze

Not the most posh place around but neither are the prices. The food though was absolutely blowing our mind. We had pasta with different seafood. One creamy and one healthy. Staff is local, all ages (defo some family business going on) and really on it. More honest than polite.

Cant wait to go back.
Our kinda place!

The restaurant is located in the old city of Bordighera. We always enjoy our food at the Saraceno. This time we had a good pizza however we noticed the sea food from other customers was really good and yummy.
The restaurant was crowded already at 7.30pm and people keep on flowing.
We definitely go back ....
The staff is good but very busy so they are unable to entartain the customers for so long.
