This little place is away from the busy areas of Lerici and that works in its favour. It really is quite good, too. Good food, with plenty of non-seafood options (rare in this region), good value (also rare for this touristy area), and good service. Nothing fancy, but it does the job well.

(AKA "Il Giogo di Landucci Renato" and, in Google Maps, simply "Pizzeria Giogio".)

Tip: bring your Italian with you - no foreign-language menus available ... a reliable indicator of a genuine local, so that's actually a good thing.

Again we visited this restaurant whilst back in Lerici, as usual the food is great, fresh and delicious. The seafood dishes are tasty - I enjoyed the Penne Scampi which was like everything I have eaten here fantastic. The friendly relaxed atmosphere of the restaurant only adds to a great evening. Definitely try it if you are in Lerici, only a hop from the main piazza and the added bonus on top was the bill - so cheap!

We have been going to this pizzeria for many years now, we recently visited it again in May 2013, it was fantastic as always. The stuffed mussels were really great as was the pizza. The service was great as well. The owner is always so friendly. You really should try it when in Lerici.

Do not miss dining at Pizzeria Tavola Calda "Il Giogo". It is located just up from the main piazza and the food is incredible. Two gentlemen run the entire restaurant, one serves, tends the bar and cleans (hence he's very busy so don't expect him to chat it up with you) while another gentlemen cooks. The atmosphere is authentic Italian pizzeria but nothing fancy. The pizza is the best I have had outside of Napoli (and I've spent a good portion of 5 of my last 7 summers in Italy) Pasta (especially the clam linguine) and salads were all excellent. Only downfall is that it can get very warm in the restaurant during the summer months due the establishments smaller size and the close proximity of the wood burning forno oven. Avoid the boring overpriced restaurants in the main piazza and stop in here. You won't regret it.
