This place was awesome! You get to choose what you eat and it's great take away food. I'd highly recommend to anyone.

Last night we ate at a seemingly similar establishment just down the street (only because this one had already sold out for the day at 8pm...) - have to say that the quality here is far superior to the 'other place'. Tonight we both had a mix of white fish and 'anchovies' (think of something between whitebait and sprats) and... More

The seafood cone (fried seafood)is a Ligurian speciality in this region. The prices are €5 for a piccolo (small) or €7 for a grande (large) cone. They may look small in the photos but they are large servings. We had the frito misto (mixed seafood & vegetables) & a calamari cone. Served with lemon and salt it yourself. Don't ask... More

As it was quite cool during our late afternoon visit, we bought the hot calamari & seafood mix from here to enjoy and help warm our bodies up. It was decent seafood with a good mixture of anchovies, squid, calamari, etc, which they serve in a cone, and you can choose what kind of mixture you would like when ordering.... More

It's a fried seafood snack shop. You order a "cone" of fried seafood including anchovies, squid, and others. The recommended option is the mixed cone-a variety of fried seafood with a few battered veg. Prices around 5-7€. Not bad for a quick snack. There is s bench that can only sit 3 people, so more of a takeaway.

Their Fish & Chips is the best seafood I've ever had. The price is not expensive, but the taste is the best. I truly recommend this restaurant to you.

Freshly cooked mixed seafood served in a cone...what's not to like! Simple, fresh and very tasty. Highly recommended for a quick lunch or large snack.

I love this combo mix of seafood- typical street food in Cinque, you can everywhere in 5 villages and definitely should try it. I recommend this one because the taste is good, not too salty as some places.

Ordered the calamari from this place with high hopes and it was just ok. Maybe it was too late in the day, but the food was cold and chewy... much preferred the place across the street.

Il Pescato Cucinato This take away outlet was recommended to us by a couple of locals. We took a look in the middle of the afternoon on our first day in Riomaggiore. The outlet is conveniently located on the main road to the sea and/or the railway station. Trade is brisk and, as others have noted, you can expect a... More
