We ate here following recommendation by friends, and it was the best meal we ate in Italy all week!! It was phenomenal - and best of all, after years of eating soggy gnocchi and wondering what all the fuss was about, I finally understand why people rave about gnocchi! The pasta with pesto dish was sooo simple, and sooo good!... More

After reading the reviews we had to check this place out and we are so glad we did. We visited in early October so not a lot of tourists around but the place was packed with local people, which is always a good sign. Without a reservation I doubt we would have gotten in. We had a wonderful english speaking... More

After several days of fish we were looking for a good meat restaurant. (You can also eat outstanding pizza and other pasta plates). But for sure, if you want a good beef plate 900g - 1200g perfectly cooked, stop there and enjoy. Pleasant service. If you see the house from outside you never would stop there - but open the...

After proposing (successfully!) to my girlfriend a few days earlier, we were looking for the appropriate place to celebrate. We ended up booking a table at Bastian Contrario and had one of the best meals of our lives! Service was amazing from start to finish, the waiter spoke perfect English and gave us advice on what to choose and portion... More

My husband booked a table for our 10th anniversary. The restaurant is a short cab ride out of Finale Ligure. We were shown to our table, and as we don't speak Italian we were given an English speaking waiter who was incredibly helpful. The waitress who spoke a little English was also very helpful, she took my husband over to... More

We returned to this restaurant after visiting it 4 years ago. Then we liked the atmosphere, and the food. Again now, we were highly impressed by it! Great food - both seafood as well as meat. Great service and nothing beats the atmosphere. They have one waiter that speaks English and is very willing to help. We had focaccia to... More
