We went to "Il Frantoio" (The name of the device to press the olives to get oil) and sat on a table just next the big "frantoio" which is installed inside the restaurant.
The restaurant is spacy and the other tables are never too close to yours.

We ate in this restaurant at lunch, inside, good temperature.
We were 4 adults and two little kids (my daughters).
With half liter wine, 1 big mineral water bottle, two courses each, dessert and coffee we spent 152 EUR.
This is a very good deal.
The food is very good, like cooked at home.
Amazing the fried calamari and shrimps!

Typical on the table: the thick coloured glass, each one of a different colour...

You can definitely have a good dish here.
Typical Italian seafoods are available.
They are opened also for lunch.

We had a very nice lunch here. The waiting staff were lovely, very accommodating, very humble and very friendly. They setup a table for us outside especially and were attentive but not intrusive throughout. I ordered the lobster and my wife the fish of the day. Both were excellent, fresh and nicely cooked. We had a starter of anchovies which was lovely too. Definitely a place to visit when you're in Lerici!

We had dinner here on a warm evening in July, and had no reservation. Luckily Il Frantoio has quite some tables inside (as well as outside in a little alley) where you can really enjoy the good food, wine and service. Pricing is imo average and not high.

the title says it all, these guys have a small restaurant and it packs out fast. The seafood is divine as is the wine and the dessert - I recommend booking as it does seem very popular - alternatively try getting there early - before 7.30 as that's when it seemed to start filling up.
