We found this excellent restaurant on the Piazza Garibaldi on our day trip to Lerici. I was amazed that given its position on the main square right by the seafront that they could offer a 2 course lunch with wine, water and cover charge all for15 euros. I was even more amazed at the quality of the food and the excellent friendly service! We sat outside under the covered area which afforded much needed shade on a very hot day. Both the gentleman who took our order and the young lady who was also serving could not have been more charming and welcoming. As starters I had the trofie pasta with a fish sauce and my partner had the spaghetti with mussels. Both dishes were delicious and the helpings were generous. We followed this with the Fritto Misto - a plate of mixed fried fish garnished with fried vegetables. We don't normally photograph food but this food was so beautifully presented and, once again, very generous, that we captured the moment! There was a large variety of different types of fish on the plate and they were beautifully cooked. This was by far the biggest and the best example of this popular local dish that we had during our visit to Liguria. So well done Pier Trattoria del Mare! Amazing quality for the price and excellent service too! I would certainly recommend this restaurant based on our great experience. If ever I'm back in Lerici, which is a delightful town well worth visiting - I'll definitely be eating in this restaurant.

Chose this one to get the lunchtime sun but the risk, like with so many restaurants which trade off position, is mediocre food , unpleasant house wine and tourist prices. The food lacked the intensity you expect from simple Italian cuisine, it was very bland. Just needs a bit of menu investment.

We tried out this restaurant the first Saturday night after it reopened with new management and were pleasantly surprised by our meal. The starters were delicious and different that most that you find in the area- chickpea cakes with creamed codfish, marinated fish (this would be really nice on a hot summer day) alongside the 'usuals' of seafood salad, salted anchovies and braised cuttlefish. All of them were good. We skipped the pasta dished and shared a 'fritto misto' of fried fish and vegetables. Very light and tasty.
My husband ordered a lemon dessert that was out of this world!
Service was fine- you could tell that they had just opened so a few kinks- but warm and personable. The owner speaks great English and is very accommodating.
We didn't have kids with us but noticed that there were highchairs as well as a kid's menu, something you don't see too often in Italy.
All in all, we passed an extremely pleasant evening here and can't wait to return and eat outside on their terrace this summer! Bravi!
