The Italian Riviera Restaurants



La Paranza Review

From the piles of tiny bianchetti (young sardines) in oil and lemon that are part of the antipasto di mare (of the sea), to the simple, perfectly grilled whole sole, fresh seafood in every shape and form is the specialty here. Mussels, clams, octopus, salmon, or whatever else is fresh that day is what's on the menu. Locals say this is the town's best restaurant, but if you're looking for a stylish evening out, look elsewhere—La Paranza is about food, not fashion. It's just off Santa Margherita's port.
