We dined here as a couple one night during our stay. The food was really good but the service was pretty average. The caprese salad was really good, the house wine is also really good. We had the seafood platter and shrimp and zucchini pasta-...More

Great location & the service was terrific. We drank a wonderful, 2013 Barolo for 36 euros, cheaper than anticipated, and the seafood was good but not great. I would have preferred more taste in my pink shrimp salad & sardine & potato "pie."

Based on the TA reviews, I was expecting a great experience. The food was what I would call average for a restaurant in Italy. The service was completely unfriendly (but not rude). The house red wine was served cold and seemed watered down.

I had a lunch and a dinner there and both were superb. Seafood was simply fantastic, extremely fresh and had pleasurable sea taste to it - both mules as well as scampi and lobster. Panna cotta with fresh strawberries was the best panna cotta I...More

We had a great meal here on our last night in Vernazza. The menu is mostly for seafood and why wouldn't you? The restaurant is twenty meters from the sea. We enjoyed our meals and the service. Near the waterfront. Check it out.

First night in Cinque Terre, raining and most restaurants were full. We went here and were told a table would be available in an hour. We walked town and came back -- and were very glad we did! Three of us had one appetizer (seafood...More
