We were seated on the terrace so also enjoyed the splendid views.

Service was warm, quick and accommodating.

Dishes had an authentic and home cooked quality to them.

Great spot for lunch!

We drove to Corniglia and checked into our AirBnB and then went looking for a place to eat. It was pouring rain, and nothing was open, as the tourist season opened on the day we left, but this restaurant was open. We all enjoyed our food, our wine and our dessert. After we had finished eating, we got to talking to our waitress and it came out we are Italian but from Canada. Well, we were immediately family and we all 5 got a Limoncello on the house!!!1

We were skeptical based off other reviews- so glad we decided to come and make our own decision! We had a great meal! We came during an off season so this may have effected the experience but we experienced a family run business that all helped out and had the typical italian restaurant feel to it! They do not act like restaurants back in the states so don't expect it! That's why you travel? To experience other cultures and atmospheres so don't compare! They don't check on you every 5 minutes and yes you must ask for the bill.

We had a bottle of the house white- delicious! Not too dry with a hint of sweet. We enjoyed the black lobster ravioli- it's not listed as that in the menu- it's considered Ligurian pasta (Pansoti)with black lobster. It's an a light tomato based sauce (but not overly tomato heavy taste- light and delicious!), the pesto gnocchi and we enjoyed a cappuccino and the local pine nut cake. Everything was delicious! I'll be dreaming of that ravioli until we return! Highly recommend. The local cake was delicious and so fun knowing you can't get one like that anywhere else! Both the lobster pasta and bake had the local pine nuts.

The atmosphere inside was fun and beautiful- Columns of stone and older photos and windows overlooking the great view. There's a terrace with a phenomenal view as well but being the off season and the sun setting before opening they don't do seating outside. It was still very cold so we didn't mind and had a seat by the window.
Wonderful meal!

The best place to watch sunsets in Cinque Terre. So romantic.
Food is good (not wow, but you'll like it).
Hosts are so nice.

I recently visited Corniglia for the first time with my long time friend Karen who has previously visited. My best memories of the trip to Italy are of Corniglia and Ristorante Cecio. What a wonderful warm experience at the restaurant with the nicest people I could have ever met anywhere. The sea bass was excellent as was the white wine. How this Texas girl wishes she were there now. Best regards to all at Cecios. Sharon from Texas.
