We had pesto with various pastas, white wine and tiramisu. All were amazing and very reasonably priced! Most of the other restaurants along the terre walk were high priced and full of seafood (which I cannot eat). The service there was amazing, the food was great and the atmosphere is lovely.

Absolutely wonderful food and service at this little treasure. We both had seafood pastas which were delicious followed by the Tirimasu Desert and the Desert Wine. A must go to!

My wife got the calamari -- excellent -- and I got the sea bass catch of the day. The fish was delicate and light,... More

Nice little place with a cool team of young folks. Seafood is delicious, most notable us the great platter of mixed starters (like tapas on a large plate). Baby squids, anchovies, shrimps, raw fish, yummy!

Our first night late arrival in Manarola meant we were looking for anything! This restaurant just had a table available - glad they did! The pizzas and pasta that first night were fantastic and the local wine washed it down beautifully. The second visit, towards the end of our week in Manarola, we enjoyed a more relaxed dinner. Lobster was... More

We ate here twice. We really enjoyed both meals. Staff was friendly and the service was fast. I wouldn't hesitate to go back.

The fried calamari was excellent for only 9.50 as was the pizza for about 10 euro. Good place for lunch.

Went here twice now while staying in town and both nights were excellent. Seafood is fresh and varied, deserts at excellent-their combination tiramisu was inventive and fabulous. Prices were OK. Service was pretty good considering the numbers and onlyt a single waitress-she handled it well The only downside is that at the end of the tourist season, they were out... More
