This restaurant is owned by the cousin of my best friend (normal in this part of Italy that everyone is cousins) and it is AMAZING. Located in the port of Varazze which is a lovely part of town overlooking yachts in the harbour.
Ask for a seat in the area of the restaurant built onto a jetty in the water as it's very romantic.
There is no menu, only a set course of approximately 4 dishes that is mainly fish based. All ingredients are sourced locally and the food is delicious.
We went for a white wine (El Greco if I recall correctly) and it was superb.
Fantastic restaurant.

very nice, pleasant atmosphere, the view on the marina is wonderful...those lazy yachts just make you want to go! The food is very good, the staff is kind and skilled. And the pub right next door is friendly and welcoming even for a espresso. The combination of perfumes, tastes, sounds and lights makes it worth an evening in any season. To try! Erica

Reviewed By SanLorGlobe

I can certainly say that this was the best culinary experience I had in long time.
Massimiliano the Chef really spoiled us for 4 days and every experience was absolutely delicious and tasty.
The atmosphere is really cosy and you can be on your own or mingle inn with some other guests and taste and share your opinions. We were lucky because of the truffles season, but even the fish or the lamb they served, was just perfect.
You can tell when Passion, Cooking Technique/Skills , and Fresh food make a huge difference.
Thank´s for the amazing job guys.
Definitely I ´ll be back.

Ristorante San Giacomo

ristorante san giacomo is situated between Varazze and cogoleto, in a beautifull location in front of the sea. you can taste an excellent food fish and different traditional italian dishes.

Reviewed By katherinelachance - London, United Kingdom

Hot soup isn't something you'd ordinarily think of whilst holidaying in Varazze, more like Beaches, pizza, sipping a cocktail. However, on a chilly day, a trip to San Giacomo for a massive serving of Zuppa di Pesce is in order. Loaded with shellfish, big chunks of fish and a sauce that you don't want to leave a drop of - it's a delicious warm up. Cannot comment on anything else at San Giacomo, as I started with this dish and it was so good, I haven't had anything else!

La Mola

Reviewed By Stefan_Boer - Wormer, The Netherlands

La Mola was recommended to us by a local, and we liked it so much that we had dinner there our second evening in Varazze as well. La Mola is the type of restaurant that you can find a lot in Italy: simple but good and honest food with friendly service for reasonable prices. Outside of touristy areas, most restaurants are like that in Italy. La Mola is slightly above average. Not worth travelling for, but certainly worth going to if you are in Varazze. It is always a good sign if the menu is only available in Italian (although at La Mola they did have English and French menus, they just hadn’t posted them outside since most of their patrons are Italian anyway). Given the location, it is not surprising that seafood is what you eat here (although they also have meat on the menu). A good bottle of local white wine is only 20 euros.
We really liked the fish antipasti. Cold cuts of smoked marlin with arugula, smoked tuna with tomato, and salmon with carrot. Served with good extra virgin olive oil and slices of lemon. Octopus carpaccio served with extra virgin olive oil, parsley, lemon and chopped fresh tomato.
The pasta dishes were good but not as good as the antipasti or secondi. We tried the spaghetti alle vongole (which seemed to be better on the first night, the second night had hardly any vongole ‘juice’ in it) and the artichoke ravioli with a walnut-cream sauce (with both the artichoke and the walnut slightly lacking in flavor). The taglierini (fresh pasta cut very thin) with lobster was really good though.
The house specialty was very fresh seabream (orata), cooked in the oven with vegetables or in a crust of salt. The fish was filleted table-side, with one waiter being very good at this and thus doing this all evening. The very juicy seabream, cooked just right, with zucchini, carrots, peppers and olives was amazing.
The home-made desserts were very good, with four types of tart, tiramisù and fresh strawberries to choose from.
We haven’t tried any other restaurants in Varazze, but we completely agree with our friend’s brother that La Mola is recommended for an uncomplicated but good Italian seafood dinner.

We don't speak Italian so really nice that staff could help us with the menu. The restaurant was busy and vibrant which always creates a good impression. We had a ravioli camberi with seafood mixture and a entrecôte d'Angus with a Gorgonzola cheese sauce. Even though I wasn't asked how I would like the steak cooked it was done perfectly, cooked rare. Well done chef! The ravioli was also delecious with a good variety of seafood. Both were good serves without being over the top and presented very well as well as tasting truly delecious. To top it all off, the food and wine was inexpensive. Everyone was very friendly, we felt comfortable and it was a fantastic night. Thank you

Ai Cacciatori

Reviewed By sgiudici - London, United Kingdom

The four of us went for dinner yesterday and I was positively surprised by the quality of the food, the good manners and the attention to details of the owner ..actually for the other 3 people it was just a confirmation of good experiences had many times before.
Don't be put off by the unassuming entrance because this is a true hidden gem for the meat lovers amongst us.
Meat and cheese is selected from the NorthWestern regions of Italy and super fresh by all standards.
What else? Vast selection of wines and beers, not common to have selection of the latter type of drinks.
Will definitely go back!

One year since we last passed by to have a meal.
We did not book since the phone was out of order.
We were lucky that after 1/2 hour we got a table.
So make sure to book if possible.
This place is full on a Tuesday night the service and food fantastic.
So no wonder that they are full.
If you love fish, a good view in lovely beach surroundings with super service - go and visit.

What a gem of a place
Went after looking at trip advisor for somewhere Lovely to eat and what we got was way past our expectations as soon as we met the owner we were greeted in such a friendly way he made us feel so at home he started by introducing us to his beer which I may add was fantastic
We then asked about food he then produced the menu and before we knew it he had a friend who spoke English and Italian who translated for us the menu we then proceed to order our food when the food arrived it look great but when we tasted it it was better than great it was absolutely fantastic
WOULD RECOMMEND BEAUTIFUL FOOD FANTASTIC HOST
