We have found this restaurant on TripAdvisor and we decided to try it out. The food was delicious, we ordered bruschetta with pesto & tomates, lobster and a mix of tiramisu, all very very tasty.

THE PROBLEM was that we have ordered a glass of a certain wine that we had tried the night before (in a bottle) but we received a very bad wine, nothing to do with what we had tasted before. Finally they admitted they have not served the wine we demanded.

THE OTHER PROBLEM was that they served under the name of "local lobster" was definitely not a lobster but a "cigale de mer". It was delicious, but I don't appreciate the fake advertising of a lobster. So be aware, you might not actually eat what you order.

Great staff, great pasta with Ragu! Booking is usually necessary! Try to get an outside table if you can, the 3 tiramisu sweet was great too!

This restaurant doesn't have a view, but does have a bit of a patio. We were seated inside, and had lots of room (an exception in Manarola), and the temperature was perfect! Service was excellent, the house red was good and the food pretty good too. We recommend eating here.

We stayed in Manarola for 4 nights and this restaurant was the best one by far. Having tried two other restaurant in town we loved this one the best purely because we found the food and service far superior then the other restaurants we went to. We definitely would have gone again if we didn't go on our last night.

We had a meal in this restaurant a couple of nights ago. I can see why this restaurant is rated so highly. I thought the food was delicious. We had the mussels for our starters, followed by the fish of the day specials. I have to say our waitress was particularly good as she was very personable at each stage of our meal. She added to our overall experience of this restaurant so - thank you to the young waitress with the dark brown hair worn in a ponytail. Yes, I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
