This is a restaurant which offers a great variety of choices - anything from cheap pizzas to beautiful fish. In fact we had neither! But we enjoyed a Milanese cutlet and an excellent fillet steak with a pepper sauce (in fact I would say this was one of the best steaks I have had in a long time). Dessert was... More

Went here for lunch, we were the only people in the restaurant, my Spaghetti Vongole had bits of clam shells in it and the pizza was made with tinned mushrooms, the lemon sorbet and the wine were good, don't think we will be going back.

Whenever I eat here I am happy to walk all the way along the market on a Friday and make it to this little oasis of italian food pleasures. Along the market street you can find many restaurants, some with a better view of the sea. But this one here remains my dearest as the food is of very good... More

Friday night. Pouring rain. Restaurants up and down the seacoast in tourist-friendly Ventimiglia are nearly empty. La Meridiana is packed to overflowing. Laughing, signing, no dancing, but plenty of eating! This place is loved by locals. This, in a town which probably has the freshest fruits, vegetables and meats across the French and Italian Rivieras. We were blown away by... More

We came here after glancing at its rating here, but just after ordering realised pizza is what to go for - they looked and smelt great. We'd ordered fish though which was good, although only came with a few vegetables for 18 euro each. The pasta was served 5 mins before the fish had been plated and served so wasn't... More

This restaurant serves a very characteristic local cuisine. We ordered various seafood dishes, but they made a Pizza Margherita for our son. The carafe of local red was an excellent value. Considering Ventimiglia is a market town attracting lots of foreigners, the staff was quite hospitable. They are probably willing to speak something other than Italian.

I went to this restaurant this evening whilst on a trip to ventimiglia with 9 other friends. The staff were very friendly and we managed to communicate well with a few laughs despite the language barrier. The food was scrumdidilyumptious and very authentic.

I arrived in Ventimiglia today on business trip and if your looking for an authentic Italian Pizza and service to go with it then look no further. Antonio is a friendly guy and played a major contribution why I am writing this review. The pizza I ordered was the delicious and I really enjoyed my short time there. Unfortunately I... More
