We recently stayed in Rapallo for 5 nights and ate in O Bansin on four of them. The food is simple but excellent and it's no surprise that on each of our visits the vast majority of customers were Italian. Give it a go...

A plain restaurant serving 10 Euro lunches. No fancy tablecloths, just good food served nicely. A super bargain in Rapallo. Try it for lunch, you won't regret it.

The place is cost and the staff are very friendly but the food is very very very average!! Very Blend taste and unattractive presentation!! Missing some fresh stuff like herbs and veggies to boost the flavors. Dommage!

After reading the reviews of this place, we got pretty much what we excpected. Good, solid well tasting food. Service friendly, but nothing extraordinary. One of the oldest restaurants, if not the oldest, in Rapallo, it's not for the snobbish food-lover, but a nice dive...More

No Italian allow to serve this kind of food. Overcooked, burned pork, cold food. Service is terrible, take with pleasure money for all the services, they lack to provide.
