We hiked up the mountain especially to enjoy the view and a small snack. The waiter was not friendly. Despite the menu the only thing we could order was lasagna so we had some wine and left

View is amazing, but service was horrid. There were only a few people, the view was good, but unfortunately didn't get to eat because our server only offered olives and pretzels. Wouldn't recommend.

The view is off the charts. Worth the steep walk. The anchovies and lemon dish was fantastic and authentic. Espresso was superb. Spectacular view and ambience. Highly recommended.

My wife and I decided to hike a small amount from Vernazza to Cornilia. Just wanted to check out a restaurant we could see from Gianni Franzi deck. It was off in the hill top. Looked like it had great views. We walked ( was a hike) and decided to have lunch and a cool drink. The bruschetta with tomato... More

This place was "the place to go"... I think the staff knows that. It seems like they don't think they have to be nice to customers because they're going to come anyway. We had pesto lasagna and spaghetti. The plates were simple and good. The view was amazing. Go here for a drink at sunset... Go somewhere else for a... More

The view here is the deal: above Vernazza (100+ steps or more) on the trail to Corniglia. The restaurant is literally carved out of the rock hillside and the view of the city, the Mediterranean, and Monterosso and the sunset beyond are better than really anywhere I can imagine. The food was good, not great. Warning: We finished our meal... More

The coastal path was closed due to the heavy rain, but we wanted to get away from the city that we had to reach by train, so decided to go to this restaurant which is up quite a few steps but affords a wonderful view on the bay. And we were pleased to have made the effort for the view... More

We asked the owner to recommend and he gave us the fruit from the sea (seafood pasta) and it was so good. Our hunger and the view and the wine added 10 extra points which give it A+. It is conveniently located at the end of the Corgnilia and Vernazza trial and overlook the lovely Vernezza town.

Ok so this place would be great if you have been hiking in the heat all day and just want some cold beer / wine with a view and move on. If you are looking for a "great Italian food experience" DO NOT go here. The service is terrible and the food is nothing to write home about. The view... More
