In our 12 days in Liguria and Piemonte where we had many excellent meals, this was our favorite. The wines recommended were recommended by our "waiter" who is also the owner. The best!

You will have a hard time anywhere else in town if you set your standards of restaurants on La Bossa. Genuinely great fresh food that never cease to please the palate, superb Wines, friendly and professional staff, extremely amicable atmosphere, and they speak English fluently...dont look anywhere else is my point.

I couldn’t wait to return here after my last visit 3 years ago, although there’s always a slight concern that things may never match the previous experience, if it was as good as ours was here first time around. Yet this was every bit as good – arguably better as the evening was fine enough for us to have a... More

Very good and subtile food, delicious wine, very friendly personal ! A bit overpriced, but in the end not a big deal. Don t hesitste to get the whole programm, antipasti, primi and secondi piati. The portions are quite small. Perfect to try different things..

It has been awhile since I have been back to this wonderful location: great food, service and a superb location if you rather enjoy a more relaxed setting than that on the lower waterfront level of Camogli. We decided to pass by for a short aperitivo (which is a great value for the fresh food service along with great cocktails... More

We dined at La Bossa some years ago and were impressed. We returned to Camogli so booked a table again. Again the food was fantastic and the service impeccable. We ate Tonno Tartare, Fried mixed fish and vegetables, Tomato and Mozzarella risotto, Pasta strips in pesto, Veal. Dessert was light apple slice with cinnamon ice cream. All superb. Lovely bottle...

This really is a wine bar with food added on as an afterthought but both wine and food are excellent. Liguria is not normally a great place for wine but La Bossa has an excellent choice. What was a great surprise was the quality of the food - beyond expectations. Great friendly service too.

Our waiter was this small restaurant's sommelier, Michele, a very pleasant and attentive young man. Based on our request for regional wine, he suggested an excellent white wine from Cinque Terre. Our food was a mixed bag. The sardines with eggplant were very good, the tuna tartare and soup with pesto good and the veal cutlet tasteless (though the potatoes... More

Located on the main road (if you can call it that) above the seafront, our two small dishes were very pleasant. However, I was very put out that having seen a wine list pricing local wines by the glass (my partner doesn't drink) I was refused all but one of them because it was not worthwhile opening the bottle for...

This little jewel of local Italian restaurant is situated on a quiet narrow street with tall residential houses along both sides, across a pub that has a live band of excellent musicians outside. Locals passing by stop and listen for a while. The food, especially the oven-roasted fish, catch of the day, was really excellent. 2 main dishes, 2 local... More
