This was the restaurant everybody in town said to try. They were not wrong. They specialise in fritadas, a local dish, which we naturally had to try. It fills up quickly! You cannot make a reservation, you must just go, and wait. Tables turn over quickly, and it is strictly first-come, first-served. It is worth it. The staff are lovely:... More

This is a terrific simple family place in the old town with a fresh Ligurian menu and very reasonable prices. Smaller parties are sandwiched into family style tables, which adds to the experience. Well organized and welcoming, and very reasonably priced.

We had some very good an tasteful sea food at Puppo Farinata. It was so good that we came back for more on the evening there after! Frutti di mare soup, baked potato and (of course) farinata come highly recommended!

There is a wide range of... More

Be sure to come on time. Later at night queues are forming outside. This little place is known for the farinata: Round bakes of chickpeas. We had two of these as a starter, some bruschetta and then fried anchovy and a pizza. Everything tasted delicious, especially the farinata. We were served efficiently and with kindness. Many Italians around us. I... More

Here you eat the authentiq food of the region in a setting not formal and very friendly. No reservations, so yes there can be a time of waiting for a table, but never too long for the experience and the low price. Good for the family.

We were recommended this place by our hotelier and we arrived early to ensure we got a table. We were not disappointed. This restaurant is vibrant and food is served quickly - it's definitely a fun place to eat but not a quiet fine-dining affair:-) We tried the farinata and it was very tasty, with a number of other smaller...

We had two meals at Da Puppo in May 2014. Food was good and the value of it was great. Also the service was friendly.

We were spending the day with our Italian friends and their two boys, and had an excursion planned to see the medieval town of Albenga along with the exceptional caves or grottos a few miles away. They told us about farinata, the very simple but hard to cook perfectly dish of the area, and said that this restaurant was the... More
