This is not a fancy Restaurant, just high Quality 'home cooking' The place is done up like an old-fashioned School classroom and the menus look like they've been written by Young children, but the Food is grown-up. We have been there several times and have never been disappointed. In Addition, it isn't expensive.

It's a good venue for lunch, the food is of good quality and well prepared BUT the set 3 course meal which includes water and a quarter litre wine at €25 per person was expensive compared with other venues

One of the best meals we had on our trip to Italy. Small family style restaurant. Great ambiance and seemed like it catered to the locals.

Crazy restaurant, real food as it should be in Liguria. Menues in only Ligurian. No time for discussions and questions. You just pick something and hope for the best. If you have to now in advance exactly what you are eating skip this one. Always ful book a table good value for money. Book a table, always full.

Good food & great price. Typical Italian trattoria. Very busy & full of locals. Not a place for a quiet romantic meal

Great atmosphere, great food and very inexpensive. If you're in alassio, call them for a reservation. We had pasta which was very interesting and as amazing as pasta can get. Next time we'd order something more substantial.

Great food! Seafood ligurian style. Fresh pasta, quick staff, a lot of food. Ask what they recommend and don't be afraid to try something new! The kitchen knows what they are doing.
