We have been living in Rapallo for months. We are Americans, though my husband is an Italian citizen. We have not always been treated well in other establishments. However, the American Bar has always been friendly and eager to please us. The prices are fair,...More

Great place to sit and enjoy the ambiance and some genuine Italian hospitality. Also great value too as 3 drinks and a generous platter of complimentary bar snacks came to a very reasonable 13 Euros.

Le Saline is tucked away between an ice-cream parlour and a restaurant. It's on the promenade, the Lungomare Vittorio Veneto. Just order a beer or a cocktail - they arrive with wonderful hors d'oeuvres. Just sit back and enjoy.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stop here - a nice location, friendly hosts, and the drinks (Campari Spritz) and accompaniments were beyond expectations.

This is the real place to enjoy l'Aperitivo. Very friendly and attentive service, sincere proposals and the best drinks in town. Be overwhelmed by the stuzzechini platter coming with your cocktail and enjoy a good nightcap before they close.

On our first day in town, we stopped by here on the way to dinner and never made it, without regret. The atmosphere was that of a comfortable, neighborhood cafe where visitors, like us, we're quite welcome alongside regulars. Complimentary appetizers were a tasty surprise...More

The reason we return to this bar is because the owner is very nice. By the second night he remembered what drinks we had ordered. Very patient with our Italian. This bar is set back just a little from the main street. There are tables...More

My wife had an Americano which is usually served in a short cocktail glass. However this place serves it in a tall glass filled to the brim, and not with a lot of ice. She said it was the best she had ever had. I...More
