Panoramic view of the gulf of Diano Marina
The large panoramic windows of the restaurant give you a landscape of vineyards and centuries- old olive groves which reach the sea towards Diano Marina. The village of Diano Gorleri nestled on the hill in front of us, seems like a nativity scene.
Tranditional ligurian and italian cuisine dishes
Our chef Alfredo offers a Mediterranean cuisine with many western Ligurian specialities, a few recipes from other regions or from the south of Italy, where he was born. The dishes are made exclusively with extra-virgin olive oil. We use as many of the resources of our land as possible such as fresh basil and vegetables from Albenga, so as to give you every day traditional menus where fresh pasta has been home made in the Lilliana way for over 50 years. We try to offer menus where fish is preponderant following the seasons and the guests’ requests.
Breakfast buffet with jams, cakes, biscuits and home-made focaccias
Cakes, biscuits and focaccias served at breakfast are home-made with genuine ingredients such as butter, milk, eggs and flour, also whole-wheat. For the savoury buffet we have selected Italian hams and cheeses. Hot dishes such as eggs, frittatas (type of omelette) and crêpes are prepared on the spot according to your requests. Hot drinks, espresso coffee and cappuccinos are prepared at the bar and served to the tables by our staff.
