Our hotel recommended that we visit Bocadasse for dinner, but one look at the sad tourist traps lining the pebbly beach and we decided to make our own dinner arrangements in the old port area. We walked down a number of dark and scary back...More

We came in 30 minutes before closing, the waiter was rude, we didnt even get napkins and my steak was raw. My friends pasta dish was ok though.

We found that place by chance while walking through the narrow streets, it's in quite remote location. No regrets however: the place looks great, the owner was friendly and most importantly - the food! I urge you to try their Home made pasta with pesto...More

I had a modest dinner here. The primo, homemade pasta with homemade pesto, potatoes and green beans was simply divine and the house white is very good: dry and clean. However I have given only four stars because the dessert, chocolate mousse, was not very...More

Very impressed with the steak. They were both cooked exactly as we had requested. Starters were rather bland. The fried anchovies were disappointing, as I did not expect them to be in little fried pancakes, the menu said 'fried anchovies', so I would not have...More

We stumbled upon this place by accident but were so glad we did! The place is frequented by the local bankers and businessmen which says a lot about the quality of the place. The food was wonderful, very tasty and very reasonably priced! I had...More

Lunch at San Carlo was a very pleasant experience. Since I was unable to chose between deep fried anchovies and baccalà as antipasti, the plates were combined into one starter. Both delicious. And very good Italian style service. As a primo I had Pansoti alla...More
