I read the article written about the restaurant and I knew that we had to try it on our first full day of our italian trip. I spoke to the owner, Luca, by phone before we left the states to ensure we could get a table. When we arrived, he and his wife, Allessandra, greeted and seated us at a table (with our surname written on a sticky note). The decor is really cool, lots of full wine bottles scattered on our table, books, pictures of their children, olive oil, jars of peppers, and a whole wall full of used sticky notes. I had anchovy filets with a tasty breaded crust and my wife had crispy squid for appetizers. They gave us a bowl of traditional Ligurian fish stew made with the air bladder of a cod fish and veggies. A little chewy, but you only live once. For the main course I had what was described in the forbes article- secreto, the very special cut of pork from the belly of acorn fed pigs in Spain. Wow! incredibly good: nutty, crispy, sweet, salty, and with a hint of BBQ flavor. My wife had a shellfish bouillabaisse style dish with prawns, mussels, and gnocchi. The wine was an Altavia "rosarosae" which went beautifully with the fish and pork. A place not to be missed
