Where to eat Ligurian food in Italian Riviera: The Best Restaurants and Bars

October 3, 2019 Tonie Szymanski

Reviews on Ligurian food in Italian Riviera, Liguria, Italy. Liguria, or the Italian Riviera, boasts a bounty of beaches and resort towns, such as tiny but tony Portofino and stylish Rapallo. Hiking trails lead from Portofino to the villages of Cinque Terre. The Riviera of the Setting Sun runs north from Genoa to the French border. Connected by an extensive rail network, most towns make easy daytrips from one another. Genoa is the region's principal city and is home to attractions from its famous Cathedral and the Palazzo Reale to an excellent aquarium.

La Piccola Oasi

Reviewed By NWLondon

Three of us ordered three different tester oil dishes with three different sauces: Ragu, pesto and walnut. Every one was completely inedible due to an excessive quantity of salt. We do not waste anything, but this was vile and would have played havoc with blood pressure levels. Instead I recommend A Pie de Ma in Riomaggiore and I Fondachi in Sarvana.

Popped in for a late lunch whilst en route to the Italian Lakes. The restaurant had just finished its main lunch service, but we were nevertheless welcomed by the very friendly staff. Excellent pasta and an outstanding veggie lasagne. Well worth a quick diversion off the motorway!

If you want to taste Ligurian flavours, you can come here! The place is very small, but clean and full of people.The owner is very likeable, kind and he has always something nice for you.Food is fantastic, above all cured meats (bacon), "farinata" (a tipical Ligurian dish) and focaccia.Now there is the possibility to eat pizza (but it isn't extraordinary) and to eat outside, because there are two tables.Something is very expensive, but you can be secure that you are eating healthy food.

Ristorante Quintilio dal 1889

Reviewed By dgercar

I was visiting Altare because my family came from this little town of glassblowers. This restaurant was recommended by a cousin that had visited town a few years ago. We were not disappointed! We had an excellent lunch, everything fresh and tasty. Our waiter spoke perfect Spanish, so he could explain every dish in perfect detail. And our surprise was even greater when he said he was born in our own country, Uruguay!!If the main dishes were good, the desserts were exceptional. I had the best chocolate volcano ever!!!Congratulations, hope you have many years of good work ahead of you!

Italian cuisine with a great selection of wines. Elegant and hospitable environment with warm and modern tones. We have a private room for dinners or business meetings.

Had great expectations given the positive reviews but nothing from food to service or ambiance really surprised me given the bill. May be just an unlucky night. Hello and thanks for the review.I'm really sorry that the expectations weren't met.We keep the prices under control but we are not a cheap restaurant and we are very careful about the success of the dinner.Unfortunately, when you eat raw fish and wine from important bottles, you can't have cheap prices.But I treasure your considerations and hope to see you again to make you think again.See you soon.

Great choice of piadinas.. cooked fresh to order.. fast, friendly service, thank you :) Bummer about all the stairs you need to climb to get there, but if you are heading up to see the view from the castle anyway, you MUST stop there for a piadina :)

Reviewed By jkarkos

The best dining experience on our trip! The previews were absolutely right. You have to have dinner here, if you are a foodie, you should try the tasting meal. Everything is made fresh with great respect to the ingredients. I opted for the a la cart dish -rosso gambero. So happy. Prawns tasted like lobster. Super delicious. My husband opted for the tasting menu. Equally happy. It's good because we shared all the food. Half bottle of wine, prosecco. Just the right portions each time. The owner treats you like family with warmth and passionate about making your meal. Be warned, Italians savor their meals. Make a reservation if possible or come early to occupy one of the 9 tables! Thank you Pasquale Thancks
