One of my friends already went to this restaurant two years ago and kept a great memory. It is outside the touristic area but it deserves the effort to look for it.

I would call it a restaurant, not an osteria, as it is more inclined to “fine dining” than to traditional, simple food. Although the dishes are derived from common Italian foods, they are adjusted and have an unique touch and flavour. The service was discrete but warm, and the cosy atmosphere accompanied a very nice meal.

we found this small restaurant through trip advisor and were so glad we did ! Its fantastic , we visited twice during our week long stay
The lovely couple who own/ manage the restaurant were extremely helpful, warm and friendly. Only too happy to translate the menu and make recommendations all of which were truly superb ..... the Taleggio in ravioli parcels is to die for !!
Not that far off the beaten track and really worth the walk , I cant rate this restaurant highly enough, the food was simply fantastic, if you are travelling to Sestri Levante you must visit this restaurant you will not be disappointed

We visited Osteria Gioitta and immediately fell in love with the small restaurant.
The osteria is app. 2 km. from the beach and hotels in Sestri Levante, but deserves the extra walk. It has about 20 seatings inside and the same outside.
We went for the 'Insalate Misti', which in 6 servings went through the different antipasto dishes in rich servings.
Next the 'Primi', we were encouraged to chose the tortellini in Parmesan cheese with truffles on top - simple and perfecto.
For 'Secondi' we chose the beef medium rare on grill. It was served sizzling hot with a grilled potatoe and lettuce - Italian style.
Finally for 'Il dolce' we had homemade Tiramisu - very creamy and sweet - almost Creme Brûlée style.
The wine list is short but accurate with Italian wine ranging from €10-25.
The service is excellent and the waitress is able to translate the menu to English.
This is a must-visit restaurant in Sestri Levante.
