Walk to this restaurant from town about a half mile. Well worth the walk. Walked in without a reservation and was seated no problem I do recommend a reservation. Food very good worth the money

We made reservations the day before and were glad that we did. The restaurant filled quickly, mostly with locals shortly after our arrival. The antipasto di mare was a highlight along with the baked fish. Our servers were gracious and prompt, but were happy to let us linger over our evening for as long as we wanted. We will be... More

Place has been recommended by friends to us. The service was fast and friendly. All special wishes were considered. Food was amazing and we were surprised that despite being in Portovenere the bill didn't kill us. We can highly recommend that place. Reservation is a must.

We went to La Chiglia on a Sat evening - it is just a 10 minute walk from the centre of Portovenere. Although we arrived quite late, the restaurant was full and we were lucky to get a table after just five minutes of waiting. The service was excellent - the waiters polite and efficient. The menu had a great... More

We had a wonderful and expensive lunch there . They could not speak a word of English which made the interaction hard. But the food was excellent and Resturant interior design was very nice

We needed some groceries for our b'fast next day having just arrived in Porto Venere. I asked "dove si mangia bene?" and my readers know I'm son of Italian immigrants. So I'm right at"home". The lady owner recommended the restaurant next door "La Chiglia". Somehow suspicios by the vicinity, and you know what I mean, I quickly checked tripadvisor and... More

Arrived with high expectations, left in disgust. Service non- existant, staff rude. The restaurant from hell. Went there to celebrate our anniversary, placed our orders, after waiting 30 minutes my wife's meal arrived, another 20 minutes and mine still had not arrived. I was then informed that what I had ordered was no longer available. My wife had by this... More

This was on top of the list. So surely we had to go there. It was a good meal and the service was as expected. The location is a bit out of town which actually it reflected on the prices. Therefore you get more value for money. I can certainly recommend this restaurant. You won't be disappointed.
