Of course, back we go to this wonderful place. First of all, I have to hug the owner, Giuseppe, who always seems pleased to see us! We are sort of regulars. Besides excellent (!) food, the view of Portovenere as night slowly arrives, the lights...More

I have been here with a friend who lives in Lucca. It is a very nice location with a beautiful view. The service was nice, but too crowdy. I fully recommend the place because of the view.
