Best Restaurant in Italy almost. Lobster is great. salmon tartar is fabulous. Wine Is perfect and everything's nothing close to expensive. Be careful not
to miss the reserve, since it is hard to get a seat. be there on seven. Since the table is only flip once.

This little restaurant is difficult to get a table in but well worth it, after 1 week in la spezia we eventually got a table by arriving when the restaurant opens. Only 1 waiter and 1 chef but the food is outstanding. Salmon starter then Lobster and duck with coffee and a bottle of wine at only 60€!!! was 100% worth the battle of getting in the door. Recommend booking well in advance but if not try arriving at 7/7.30 to get a table when they open!

We did not expect what we found. A back street restaurant hidden from the public thoroughfare. This was undoubtedly one of the best meals I have had in an Italian restaurant taking quality, service, ambiance and most definitely the price. We could not believe how inexpensive this restaurant was for such a high standard of delicious food. I would strongly recommend a visit. The one waiter kept everyone within his watchful eye, granted it was towards closing time but if you are prepared to sip great wine and enjoy the atmosphere the wait will be truly worth it.

One of the best meals we have had in La Spezia (so far) after 5 days of trawling. Plenty of great sea food on the menu - my husband had a very meaty half lobster with a veggie and fruit salad base.
There is a very respectable and aggressively priced wine list e.g. Hoffstater Muller Thurgau for 20 euros. Primo and secondi were priced at 8 - 10 euros. No bottle of wine more than 35 euros.
Comments have been made about this restaurant looking half full on some nights with a "Compleato / Full" sign on the door. Two reasons for this, I think - they only have 1 sitting / night, ensuring that neither the diners nor the chef are rushed in any way - slow eating (hooray !) + it clearly states on the menu that all the Secondi take 20 mins to prepare - so they are cooking everything from fresh presumably (?) + there is only one waiter servicing up to 25 covers (about average in La Spezia from what we can see). So ... a quiet atmosphere which is great if you are looking for a relaxing foodie evening out.
Highly recommended. You HAVE to book.

Excellent menu (a little bit short for greedy person like me). You will found well presented, good quality and good prices dishes for everyone with an emphasis on seafood (speciality of La Spezia). I didn't like the white house wine but it were my choice. The wine menu is also well balanced. Toilets could be better for a classy restaurant like this.
