The restaurant is located about 15 minutes driving from Levanto center up to the hills to a village called Lavaggiorosso. Driving is difficult since street is steep and narrow especially for people having fear of heights. The restaurant is typical Italian trattoria, offering simple food. The best in this restaurant is pasta, you choose pasta and sauce and they combine... More

It is not a starred restaurant. Don't ask for seafood. It is an old, regional osteria on the mountains and traditional, local food has served since 50 years. Pasta is homemade, even pasta made using chestnuts flour (tipical of mountains area). They had amazing sauces for pasta (homemade of course!): mushrooms, bolonnaise, pesto. Portions are huge, so take it easy... More

A simple restaurant difficult to find and to Park but with marvelous food. You choose the pasta and the sauce. Trofie al pesto and ravioli di zucha are probably the best. Very good home made tiramisu!

Lovely food and big portions. Restaurant is not very easy to reach, but totally worth it. We couldn't stop asking for more.

What a drive and meal last night above the coast near our week's self cater facility in Levanto; playful invigorating turns everywhere with fulsome mountains the norm. Antica Ustaia Zita is a wonderful opportunity compared to those flickering lights below - from what now suggested a distant galaxy- where we thrust our engines above. Actually it takes less than fifteen... More

We (Italian and German origin) had a super delicious first dish (one with Ravioli with Ragù (meat sauce) and the other one Black Spaghetti with fish - see picture). As the portion was very big, i wasnt able to take a second dish, however my partner enjoyed his second dish a lot. As there is always space for dessert, we... More

The food is fresh, delicious, and inexpensive. Ate at many good restaurants in Italy; this was the best value and the best food. An Italian gem hidden off the beaten track. There is only an oral menu of the day and the place is so small you have to make reservations. The locals know how great the food is. Get... More

We were not aware of this small, rustically beautiful restaurant just below our apartment until our kind host mentioned its existence. Eating lunch in the "porch", for lack of a better word, felt like being suspended above the olive groves and vineyards of the surrounding hill towns. It was absolutely magical. The woman who greeted us and served us, the... More

I discovered this place on a hike to the remote village in which it is located and decided to come back by car for dinner to experience what the mother and son due had to offer. I thought that the idea of the unwritten three course menu reflecting the daily variations was an intriguing change. And so what if they... More

This is a real gem hidden away in Lavaggiorosso in the hills. A bit hard to find but this is what makes it special. Very friendly family run restaurant serving hearty villiage food that may well be the best meal you have on your travels. We shared fabulous pasta dishes, drooled over the rabbit, pork and anchovie mains, enjoyed the... More
