Laigueglia, Badarò course, the seafront: what once was Il Pirata, a tourist pizzeria, is now one of the most interesting restaurants of the Riviera. Luca Bertora is the patron, chef, sommelier of the restaurant inherited from his parents and, in small steps, has made his taste revolution. Once inside the veranda and the restaurant the idea of ??being in a pizzeria disappears. Of course, the pizza is still on the menu, but we talk about gourmet pizza, with fine flours, mother yeast, local excellence as a filling. Luca “Pirata” Bertora and his staff have a common characteristic: kindness, availability to the customer, the desire to explain the dishes, however without becoming boring. The freshly caught fish is the protagonist. The rossetti are combined with the artichokes of Albenga, the tuna wrapped by sesame is perfectly scalded, the garlic of Vessalico flavoures the rollatina pescatrice and the poork cheek, the raschera joins in an unlikely but excellent combination of taste with the red mullet, porcini mushrooms and black truffles. The desserts are excellent. The winery offers more than three hundred labels, including bubbles while prestigious distillates do not miss. “The Pirate” Luca is also an art lover, so his dishes are inspired by paintings and painters, while on the walls there are works by the artists of the Alassian gallery Arte and Kaos. Last, but not least, the bill: fair, with the fair mark-up on the wines.
