Very nice place, very good pizza and carpacio. Italian 100%! Perfect way to feel the italian spirit. Also try the "bianco vino della casa" (white house vine). If you stay in La Spezia you must try it! PS Very good prices!

Very good food at very reasonable prices. Fresh and good quality ingredients. Only locals were there. We ate here twice and would go again if I stayed longer. The meat dishes were very high in quality,tender, well cooked and tasty. Unpretentious and with friendly staff.

Good, simple food at very reasonable prices. Only locals were there when we had dinner. Fresh lettuce and tomatoes in the salad; self-made vinaigrette. Very good bruschetta with fresh arugula on top. No pasta on the menu when we visited.
