Il Brigantino was our luncheon location for our Cinque Terre tour. As our group of 42, plus guides, arrived I could see the befuddle look on the the host and waitresses. They did their best to accommodate our crowd. We had antipasto, a local pesto...More

I couldn't have been more pleased with the service and meals at Il Brigantino. The owner and her daughter were so kind and treated me as if we were old friends. My meal was exquisite and yet simple. It is a great place to avoid...More

Unfortunately, this was not one of our better meals during our 12-day trip to Italy. We could hear the owner/manager speaking gruffly to her staff, service was neither slow nor fast, the outdoor patio was quite chilly (we did not want to sit inside, where...More

We popped in for dinner one night when it was crowded but were very pleasantly surprised to be served quickly and our food was delicious. It must be a dog friendly restaurant as there was a family with their pet just inside the front door.
