Lunch menu , we choose the cod and octopus. Cod was a bit undercooked and the pulpa was very good. With 2 glasses of wine , coffee and water. Just 32 euro. Good place !

Found this place by looking at Tripadvisor as we were walking around La Spezia centre for a dinner place. It had good rating and didn't disappoint, rather surpassed our expectations really! Had a lovely long meal there with antipasti (the mixed seafood antipasti was great to share! so many little faves on that plate!) For the main we stuck to... More

... the house white was very passable indeed; not hugely chilled, which seems at times to be the Italian way, but that brought the flavours out. I had baked and steamed fish + spinach, my wife swordfish and a mashed pea side dish. For pudding she had chocolate blancmange, while I tried what was a square of nicely hard ice... More

We didn't know what to expect here and we're a little wary of the menu. We had no prior experience with their types of local seafoods. We had swordfish steak and mixed fried seafood. The swordfish was dry but the fried seafood was very fresh and tasty. However, we ordered the mixed seafood because it included prawns. We knew what... More

We stumbled upon this place as we were walking to the ristorante our B&B owner had suggested. As soon as we got to the suggested ristorante, we were instantly turned off by the amount of horse meat that was on the menu. We had seen this place on the way over and thought the menu looked great, so we headed... More

I was there last week for dinner and was a very enjoyable experience. Very interesting dishes instead of the usual, great wine list.

We kind of ended up here after realising that restaurants in downtown La Spezia are unlikely to take you with no reservations - even just for two persons. The menu is only seafood, but thats what you should be eating in the area, and they do it incredibly well. The selection is unique, fresh and of high quality. The owner... More

We had a nice experience in this small and very cosy restaurant, so we decided to go there again the following evening. The owner and the waiter were friendly and very kind. We considered the portions absolutely right as dimension. The rapport quality price is quite correct. We had different little things to taste as starter, absolutely delicious, then we... More

Nice resturant with very good homemade food. Both starter, main course and dessert was delightful! I ordered fish of the day and it was really juicy and the taste combinations of the dish was perfect! strongly reccomended! The owners was helpful and showed good service the whole night!
