We went to Manuelina for lunch while visiting Recco recently and we're still shaking our heads at the outcome of this experience. Our waiter spoke English which we appreciated as our ability to speak Italian is very challenged. However, even though we thought we had made it clear on a couple of our menu choices that we wanted to share... More

With a glass of prosecco on arrival, and the lobsters still swimming in the tank, the atmosphere is elegant and mature. We did choose the lobster and it was very nice. The place is a little expensive but I knew that before we went. Staff were polite. Food was good but not as great as I expected!

This typical restaurant is an institution in the Liguria. Famous for the foccacia, every single dish we tried was perfect. They offered us some local wine (unfortunately I do not remember the name) that was superb. Service is excellent and the place big and comfortable. Recommended if you happen to be around Recco.

The wait staff was a bit distracted the day we visited but the focaccia made up for it. It's made here in Recco and it's the thinnest focaccia you'll ever see.Its made with stracchino, a type of soft, creamy cow's milk cheese. We had it as an appetizer and then followed it with some pasta with pesto. If you just... More

The restaurant where the Recco's cheese Focaccia is born. Absolutely delicious. Beside the focaccia, everything is very good. The staff is well trained and the owner pays time to every single guest.

During our stay at Villa Manuelina we visited the restaurant for lunch. The place is cozy and the dishes tasty. The service is extremely slow, and in our case the restaurant was almost empty, I imagine that it can be worse if the place is full.

Staying in Recco is a Challenge , to eat there is even worse . Somehow the city has a long tradition of forcaccio with milks cheese in big pizza serving as the servant cuts it into peaces. This places has had special prizes for this weird food, we went there for dinner. You walk into a cave from late 70,... More

We had a daily proposed menu and every dish that came to the table was better that the one before. I still can not decide which was the best one. I would have to choose between the bellow ones (but it's a hard task): Carpaccio di ricciola con pepe rosa e sale affumicato Cubo di alici marinate con verdure Cevice... More

Manuelina is a very good restaurant. You must try the focaccia!! (Great variety of gluten free options too !)restaurant needs to go back to the high standard quality it used to have as it used to have even better food.

I went there with my former girlfriend. We took the focaccia al formaggio. It was really good. The price was good and fair. Really advised!
