Really do not get some of the reviews, it is an Osteria, menu on the wall outside , clearly aimed at locals wanting fast quick easy eating, and it delivers.

Have been twice, shame we discovered it late in our 5 week stay as would have been back more often. READ the menu carefully and select several antipasti / Contorni then a secondo each and you will be happy, satisfied and full. All dishes we tried were good/great and love the Bacala, Insalta Russa, Cipolla tonno fagiolani are great.

I must have ordered the wrong things because the food was terrible. The ambiance gives off an earthy feel-good vibe. I asked for my steak medium-rare, but it was frozen in the center. Too many things on the menu look like crap, smell like crap, and taste like crap. I gave this place two stars because I was feeling extra generous.

One of the worst meals in Italy. The locals like it, but it’s very inexpensive, and I think that’s the draw. Would not recommend it. So many better restaurants in Chiavari.

This is more like a canteen experience with regional cooking, which you order one course at a time.

Service is fast, the house wine is good and the food wonderful. Do not expect to be bowled over with decor, but more with authenticity. Prices are very reasonable.

We stayed in Chiavari for three nights in summer 2017 and ate at this place for dinner every night. Their menu changes daily. We had to wait, as the locals filled it up soon after it opens, but the wait was well worth it. We had the same waitress every night; she is the daughter of the chef. She was very warm and tried very hard to translate the menu for us. Even with simple pasta, the flavor burst in your mouth; simply amazing! Would love to go back again. Make sure to order your dessert at the beginning, otherwise the best ones will be no longer available.
