Specialises in fresh local fish + seafood – you can choose your own from the catch of the day. This is a one of the best known restaurants in Rapallo – family run – great food – it is at the higher end price wise but also a high quality service

Luca is a sucker for sunsets….his favourite one - which he says competes with anything you see in the Caribbean is at Camogli.

Tanino's Recommends:

Need phone number + addresses

Tonino recommends ‘Il Tipico’ in Bogliasco (first village before Genoa as you leave Santa Margherita – leave the highway at Nervi). The owner is his close friend. The sea food is fantastic but also many tasty Ligurian specialities.

Also not to be missed! Between Rapallo and Zoagli there is a little bay with a favourite restaurant of Tonino’s right in front of the sea…it is called “Ristorante da Tonino”

Stefano Recommends:

Stefano’s favourite restaurant is “San Lorenzo” in il “San Lorenzo”, at the Ruta, the “pass” that links Camogli town to Santa Margherita Ligure.

He likes to go there after watching the amazing sunset over San Rocco di Camogli, which for his is the best view in the whole area. 

Giangoi's Recommends:


Via Roma 296 Recco (Genova) Tel 0185 74-128

Manuelina has been one of Liguria's best restaurants for more than a century.

Try - Focaccia al Formaggio, followed by pansÙtti, a Ligurian stuffed pasta with herbs + moscardini, extraordinarily tender, tiny relations of the octopus
Mushroom with potatoes is a great main course.

Getting there: Take the Genova-Livorno highway and exit at Recco; the ramp winds down to Via Roma. Turn left, inland, and it's about a mile, on the right

Roberta Recommends:

Roberta loves traditional food and her favourite restaurants are “La Solita Zuppa” in the San Siro area of Santa Margherita which is well known for meat specialities and “Da Antonio: in the San Bernando area in Santa Margherita.

Roberta also recommends the view from ‘Chiesa di Nazzarego’ in Santa Margherita.
