Wow! This place sure was horrid! They trick you with their Michelin stickers in the window, but when you look it up, it’s not recommended by Michelin at all. I doubt it’s even recommended by the owners mother.

I would be ashamed to work here and it looks like the waiters are as well!

Worth a trip? Only if you want to throw money into the ocean, because in all fairness: you can.

it was worth a day trip from La Spezia just to come to this restaurant and experience all the delicious meals we had. From the spaghetti de la mar, to the insulata polpo to the trenette pesto and to the orata, all were very tasty and some of the best we experienced in our month long trip in Italy. Our waiter, Giovanni made some suggestions, and he was right. Congratulations to Chef Victor for these wondrous flavors, and to Giovanni and Armando who made this experience one of the best.

We recently visited the island for a day and had lunch at this restaurant. The initial service was rude, with the waiter pointing to a table without opening his mouth. We then waited and waited for menus and also for our drinks. We both ordered spaghetti with Langoustines. We, from Australia expected some crustaceans of a good size. The ones in the pasta were an absolute joke. We dug out all the meat first and it would not cover a one Euro piece. The problem was they were just too small !!!
We were so disgusted, we paid and left.
Do not go to this place !!!!!

We have been staying in Porto Venere all week and 3 nights tried to eat at this restaurant. Every night there were empty tables (all different times) but every night we were told very abruptly and rudely "no we are full". Every other restaurant welcomed us warmly and we found the staff to be friendly. We asked a couple of waiters why they wouldn't let us have a table and they said they have a very arrogant reputation but not sure why. Apparently they used to be good but have gone drastically down hill.
As we never got to eat there we can't comment,but all we can say is eat at nearly any of the other restaurants and you will find good food and a warm welcome. We are off out tonight and will be giving it a miss and eating at one of the other lovely restaurants!!

Octopus salad was truly amazing! Service and location also worthy of a high rating. Capped off with wonderful pane cotta and limoncello! Oh and view of the water is fabulous.
