In the midst of all the tourist noise and traffic of Rapallo you can have good local food and wines at the Hostaria Vecchia Rapallo. Try the Branzino in salt!

Steep prices - for both food and wine; small portions; some food delicious (though too little of it!), some frankly bland; waiter unsmiling and indifferent. Poor value for money.

I found this restaurant on a short visit to Rapallo. Service was friendly and efficient. I had a Cotoletta alla Milanese accompanied by sun dried cherry tomatoes. It was delicious as was the glass of Valpolicella to go with it.

The old restaurant where plaster and wooden beams a glimpse of the original features, has been transformed into a stylish restaurant, thus creating an atmosphere which is fully reflected in the cuisine that is offered. Our gastronomic follow the seasonal cycle, drawing all the time, to the extent that they do not offend the tradition, the innovative imagination. Eye-catching and unique dishes, but the denominator of fresh fish and catch. I and my staff are dedicated every day to our work in the belief that the "Eating is not only the necessary nutrients for survival: is an act that can transform in sublime pleasures to share with other people. Rises so a biological act artists of savoir-vivre " ... "As in all the arts, the kitchen is a means to harmony "
