This restaurant is within the Santa Maria hotel but is run (and billed separately). I was pleasantly surprised by the comfort and the quality of the food. I had a starter of smoked salmon, tuna and swordfish, each on a different salad leaf. My main was bream (catch of the day) cooked in a glass pot with mussels, clams, shrimp and octopus garnish. Followed by ice-cream and coffee. The whole thing was very reasonably priced and the service was friendly and fast. The house wines weren't at all bad.

This is a fairly new restaurant, nice and spacious. Very friendly hosts, great food at a surprisingly low price. We even had a 20% discount through The Fork. The location is a bit out off center but worth the walk. And ... they actually serve a white Rieling from our wine region, the Oltrepò Pavese!

We - a group of six Italophile Brits - ate every evening except one here and were always treated with warmth and friendliness, the staff delighting in banter and explanations of the genuine Italian dishes. Highly recommended!

Had dinner in the hotel restaurant; their fixed price 20 euro special. I had a swordfish pasta that looked like a way to use up parts of a swordfish steak that no one wants. But it tasted OK though. Hubby started with veggie soup; lots of olive oil but otherwise OK. Served very hot! Then we each had veal and potatoes. The veal was basically sub-standard; all fat, gristle, etc. We thought of the lip on a steak. Three little pieces half an inch by 1 inch by three inches long. I probably got five bites all together. A few chunks of potato decorated the plate, they were at least cooked well if not seasoned. We did enjoy sharing a bottle of Barbera with dinner. We arrived just as the restaurant opened and left two hours later. Service was friendly but disjointed.

As we were staying in the Hotel Santa Maria we tried this restaurant, which is attached, on our first night. Although we tried another place next evening, we returned to eat at La Caracca for the rest of our stay because it was so good. The interesting four course menu included a choice of authentic, tasty Ligurian dishes, the wines were excellent and all backed up with warm and welcoming service from the staff. The continental breakfasts offered a range of fresh pastries, breads and toasts as well as cheese, ham and eggs.
