One of the worse pizza around. A very thin base with bad quality ingredients. Even if very thin, the pizza was not crunchy but that was the only consolation. I had a stomach ache the same evening and felt sick the day after too.

This restaurant is close to parking and sited near the road but not noisy. We had a carpaccio of Boeuf which needed a dressing although a good balsamic vinegar and oiil were provided. We then ordered a pizza and a Fritto misto. The pizza was delicious and the mixed fried fish was excellent cooked to perfection with a great variety.... More

It is open on Monday! Tuesday as well. Closed Thursday. We didn't try the pizza but it looked delicious. The insalata mista was exquisite with some of the best mozzarella ever. The veal cutlet smothered in tomatoes and Tropea onions was also maybe the best I've had. Lovely glass of Barbera and also Prosecco. And very reasonably priced. And the... More

Excellent lunch, a nice surprise as we found the place by chance, after leaving the motorway. Superb Pasta frutti di mare. Dedicated staff. A real pleasure. A french couple en route to Tuscany.

In the unlikely event you happen to be on the autostrada heading for Genoa and it is coming up to lunchtime take the turn for Ovada, follow the main road through what is a pleasant little town and where the road divides you will see The Excalibur. There is a set menu for as little as 10 euros, but we... More

We found the Excelsior by accident, and what a surprise. Everything was lovely, starting with the service. They could not have been more helpful, informative or kind. My husband ordered the Bacala alla Genovese, and my son and I had pizzas, which were wonderful. The waiter suggested a Gavi, Villa Sparina white wine. After having it with dinner, we had... More
