Recommended by Hotel Astoria, my wife and I enjoyed the walk to (and from) Elite. We had the prix fixe meal and every course was excellent. We asked our waiter to recommend a wine and it went perfectly with our meal. Noticed many locals - always a good sign when you are traveling and looking for a good restaurant

Very nice staff, dog friendly. Food was good, even though fish was frozen (I guess it's normal for November, though) but well-cooked. Nothing bad to say, really. Prices a sliggtly higher than we expected (11-14 euro for pasta or ravioli and 14-18 for main course)

Speciality of this area "PansottI" which is pasta stuffed with cheese,spinach and fresh herbs. The pasta was no doubt homemade and delicious, its topped with a walnut sauce, portions are more than...

We recommended to this restaurant by some friends who had eaten there earlier in the month. The food was nice but we were a little disappointed with the service. We ordered our food only for the server to come back and tell us what we had ordered wasn't available. The same thing happened with our desert. When our food eventually... More

Marco from Hotel Desiderio recommended that we checked out this restaurant run by several generations of the same family. The service was fantastic and the food authentic. I chose the swordfish with salad and my partner chose a seafood platter. There were several homemade desserts to choose from, but we settled on the apple and chocolate tortas. This is a... More

Stumbled on this place wandering along the esplanade in Rappallo. The chef spoke English and was most helpful with suggestions. The local herb filled ravioli and the fresh fish...perfect, all topped of with some local vino bianco and homemade walnut tart. Had to walk it off later but it was worth it.
