L’Articiocca
Restaurant
Via Olivi, 8, Levanto; Tel.: 366-7177613
The restaurant's name means the "artichoke," and you'll find those on the menu when they're in season. Other dishes to savor are the shrimp and truffle ravioli with butter and wine sauce, the gnocchi with truffles, and the pesto prepared right at the table: a treat to watch! Local wines by the glass make a nice accompaniment, and the waitstaff is friendly and helpful. Save room for the special panna cotta - the flavor changes each day. Open for dinner only.
