Set into the cliff, this seaside restaurant presents a fresh take on classic Ligurian dishes. You can dine at one of the tables overlooking the water or in the dining room, which is housed in a room that had served as a bunker during WWII. Excellent food and good service in a nice setting. The emphasis is on fresh seafood - try the fish-stuffed ravioli or cannelloni, or the citrus-scented shellfish.

Reservations are highly recommended, especially in the summer months.
