We were on a day tour of the fantastic Cinque Terre area and didn't have the time to explore and compare restaurants and menus for lunch, as we would normally do. Therefore we took the suggestion of our tour guide (does he get any compensation??)...More

We had a very nice dinner there. The food is excellent and the service was very good. Seafood ravioli was wonderful, and my husband said his swordfish was the best he had in Italy.

Sorry. It was a first-time visit and while we thought it was quite good, we had no previous visit to compare it with.
