At first glance this looks like a really small restaurant but when you get inside it opens up into a larger restaurant to the side. I would say definitely sit in the area where you enter, it's a nicer atmosphere. Plenty of locals came in...More

I was in Rapallo for one night with friends and wanted Italian seafood. This restaurant was recommended. I was very pleased with quality of food, service and value. The owner was present and hands-on. A very pleasant experience.

The food is not so good and the prices are very high. The service is professional and they have very good selection of vines. But in Rapallo you can find better places with better food.

Recommended by our hotel but we were disappointed by the food. The restaurant is very nice in terms of ambience but the food although nice to look at was lacking in flavour and seasoning and pretty expensive. My wife ordered some vegetables as a starter...More

The old restaurant where plaster and wooden beams a glimpse of the original features, has been transformed into a stylish restaurant, thus creating an atmosphere which is fully reflected in the cuisine that is offered.
Our gastronomic follow the seasonal cycle, drawing all the time, to the extent that they do not offend the tradition, the innovative imagination.
Eye-catching and unique dishes, but the denominator of fresh fish and catch.

I and my staff are dedicated every day to our work in the belief that the
"Eating is not only the necessary nutrients for survival: is an act that can transform in sublime pleasures to share with other people. Rises so a biological act artists of savoir-vivre "


"As in all the arts, the kitchen is a means to harmony "
