We both choose Pasta and Pesto. It was overcooked and very soggy. I could not taste any of the other ingredients that they have listed in the menu. Another person also said it was the worse meal she has had in ltaly. Someone also had the sea food pasta and there was lots of empty shells and very little sea... More

If you are in the town it isn't easy to find the restaurant. You need go up until the church level. The seafood was very good, and you can overlook the town. It will be great if the food looks more elegant, but considering the busy season, it is already not too bad.

Even though t's quite a hike up to get to the restaurant, we were seated inside so there really wasn't much of a view. The food was average, seafood pasta was enjoyable but the mussel dish we had was below average...mussels were so tiny and chewy, not like the others we had in other restaurants in Cinque Terre.

Dal Billy was the best meal I had in Cinque Terre! This place is popular. I tried to get dinner reservations but they were booked, or at least didn't seem to want to fit in a single diner. You must call for reservations, but the staff all speak English. I walked in for lunch, no reservation required. By the time... More

My picky vegan wife says she had the best pasta dish of her life here which was a simple spaghetti and tomato sauce. I ordered the bottarga to be adventurous but it was too fishy and salty (and I like anchovies!) and I regretted it because the menu had so many great options. The restaurant itself is on 2-3 levels... More

We went for lunch with a group of friends; all of whom are big foodies and this restaurant did not disappoint! It was absolutely fantastic. Come hungry! We ordered lots of dishes to share so we could try everything- the mixed seafood starter was to die for and also the white truffle pasta. Ans you can't go past the tiramisu.... More

The 12 item antipasti dish at Trattoria Dal Billy was the tastiest and most interesting dish we had in Italy. Hopefully you like anchovies and you will love this dish. I would bet that you would love the dish even if you thought that you didn't like anchovies. The only mistake we made was not realizing how generous Billy is... More

We had the pasta/lobster special for two which was a whole lobster served over pasta. In my opinion, the pasta was the star of the meal. House wine was good as was dessert. We only called for reservations a few hours ahead and wanted to sit outside so were told that we could have 2 hours for our meal and... More

If you want authentic Italian cuisine then look no further what a treat. Home made food served with passion and class. We were treated like Royalty and the food and location a dream. This review is short and sweet a must if you are here and well worth the short hike...Well Done!!

Mussels 'marinara' for antipasti was absolutely the best. I've never tasted better! My wife and I shared the lobster and pasta dish (served for 2) which was very good. The views from Dal Billy are among the best from Manarola, especially at 8:45-9:15 (sunset). The only critique I would have would be that the staff is a bit arrogant and... More
