The Bossa is a small restaurant specialising in good, home-cooked food which is locally produced. There is a focus on organic ingredients of the highest quality - and organic wines - a really important and relatively new development. The Bossa is well worth a visit - or two!

After a prolonged stay in Camogli we found that La Bossa di Mario is the best place to eat and drink. In fact they are among the best in Liguria! Local wines are represented in abundance and they are excellent. The food is delicious and the ambience is both friendly and professional.

In our 12 days in Liguria and Piemonte where we had many excellent meals, this was our favorite. The wines recommended were recommended by our "waiter" who is also the owner. The best!

You will have a hard time anywhere else in town if you set your standards of restaurants on La Bossa. Genuinely great fresh food that never cease to please the palate, superb Wines, friendly and professional staff, extremely amicable atmosphere, and they speak English fluently...dont look anywhere else is my point.

I couldn’t wait to return here after my last visit 3 years ago, although there’s always a slight concern that things may never match the previous experience, if it was as good as ours was here first time around. Yet this was every bit as good – arguably better as the evening was fine enough for us to have a... More

Very good and subtile food, delicious wine, very friendly personal ! A bit overpriced, but in the end not a big deal. Don t hesitste to get the whole programm, antipasti, primi and secondi piati. The portions are quite small. Perfect to try different things..

It has been awhile since I have been back to this wonderful location: great food, service and a superb location if you rather enjoy a more relaxed setting than that on the lower waterfront level of Camogli. We decided to pass by for a short aperitivo (which is a great value for the fresh food service along with great cocktails... More

We dined at La Bossa some years ago and were impressed. We returned to Camogli so booked a table again. Again the food was fantastic and the service impeccable. We ate Tonno Tartare, Fried mixed fish and vegetables, Tomato and Mozzarella risotto, Pasta strips in pesto, Veal. Dessert was light apple slice with cinnamon ice cream. All superb. Lovely bottle...

This really is a wine bar with food added on as an afterthought but both wine and food are excellent. Liguria is not normally a great place for wine but La Bossa has an excellent choice. What was a great surprise was the quality of the food - beyond expectations. Great friendly service too.

Our waiter was this small restaurant's sommelier, Michele, a very pleasant and attentive young man. Based on our request for regional wine, he suggested an excellent white wine from Cinque Terre. Our food was a mixed bag. The sardines with eggplant were very good, the tuna tartare and soup with pesto good and the veal cutlet tasteless (though the potatoes... More
