My wife and I had been to this restaurant a few years and found it to be perfectly adequate, so decided to go again, this time with our two sons and future daughter-in-law. My wife and two sons ordered pizza and declared it all perfectly OK. The house wine, I'm told, was very nice and incredibly cheap for the quality.... More

I have read many reviews of this restaurant on TA and so many are in total disagreement and often diametrically so : Portions too small, generous helpings; prices correct, overcharging for the quality of food served; bon accueil, patron a grizzely old bear etc., etc. Let me just say I have been coming to this place for years and it...

This restaurant is really good, the oven is directly in sight so you can see how the pizza is made in front of your eyes. Tip: try the escalopa Milanese, really good and tender !

Our first - and last - visit. Early Friday evening in the middle of November, the staff seemed disinterested and the food ( mushroom risotto ) was average. With so many other restaurants nearby to chose from, won't bother returning.

Back to la vecchia napoli. Excellent pizzas, good value bottle of Primitivo, shared a high quality main course fried calamari and prawns for starter. The owner may be eccentric but complaints about service here are exaggerated: may relate to market rush at Friday lunchtime.

The dishes are typical of traditional Italian cuisines of that part of Italy. Whenever I am in that area, I have to visit this restaurant ... Its seafood pasta is... More

A couple of friends who live on the French side of the border like this place, and they took us for a mid-week lunch. It's a nice walk from the train station through the busy Ventimiglia downtown area, through a park, and over a short bridge just off the sea. The restaurant is located just on the west side of...
