Il Basilico is a fairly large restaurant in Deiva. It has a nice sidewalk terrace and service was OK.
Favorite Dish: We only had lunch here: ravioli di pesce a la Liguria which was black/white ravioli filled with salmon in a seafood sauce. Delicious!
Location of this hotel/restaurant is very nice: on the beach boulevard.
Favorite Dish: We both had gnocchi al pesto as a first course.
My husband had saltimbocca a la romana as a main and me dover sole.
Of course we shared a bottle of wine!
The restaurant of the hotel Clelia, member of the Hotels Gourmet.
Typical Ligurian cuisine, which means lots of fish and seafood dishes.
Favorite Dish: For lunch I really liked their (home made) tagliolini with pesto accompanied by a mixed salad. When we were at the hotel during the day we enjoyed lunch by the pool.
For dinner we usually ate fish: bass, sole, seafood platter. All were very good!
They also have an extensive wine list with some delicious wines. Ask Luca, the co-owner and sommelier, to give you advice!
Favorite Dish: if you feel like of an icecream or a fresh drink, get out of the free beach from the small passage at its back and a few tenner of meters on the left there is a "gelateria" with yummy composition of icecream, fruit, cream, chocolate and so on...
