The culinary tradition of Liguria covers a wide variety of flavours, and because of its origins is considered the true cuisine of the Mediterranean, with dishes from the land and the sea, wild herbs, grains and extra virgin olive oil as an essential ingredient.
The Antica Locanda Luigina Restaurant offers all the traditional delicacies of Liguria, with seasonal menus based on produce from the Val di Vara, and an à la carte menu with a wide selection of home-made dishes. Open all year round for lunch and dinner, the restaurant has two indoor dining rooms that can seat up to 100 people, and a pleasant outdoor area that can accommodate up to 60.
If you have a milestone anniversary to celebrate, or a wedding reception, communion or christening to organise, you can book our restaurant and request exclusive menus that we will prepare specially for your guests.
The history of the hotel dates from the mid-nineteenth century when it was known as the Osteria della Marinetta, and ever since then it has been renowned for the excellent food and wine and the goodness and simplicity of its local recipes which have become the hallmark of our restaurant.
The blend of historic tradition with the excellence of local ingredients is represented by dishes like chestnut flour gnochhi in walnut sauce, pappardelle al pesto with potatoes and green beans, rabbit casserole with olives and pine nuts, and the white and red wines of Val di Vara, like the Vermentino DOC Colli di Luni and local sweets such as the cake made with Sciacchetrà, the delicious sweet wine of the Cinque Terre.
Our passion for authentic flavours and attention to the dietary needs of our guests are recognised with dishes recommended for vegetarians, coeliacs and other special requirements: here you can sample the delights of regional cuisine that respects your nutritional needs. Pasta, bread and desserts are all made in the restaurant using prime ingredients from the hotel’s organic valley surroundings.
