This hidden gem in its simplicity will surprise you with authentic tastes and warm welcome from the owner family. If you happen to be in Sanremo, do some good for your soul and order the seafood pasta, you will not regret!

Had a bit of trouble finding this little restaurant but after asking this lovely moustache man where it was, he directed us and we were delighted to have not given up. Great food, great staff and a charming location!
