We visited this restaurant with our 22 month old and 5 month old sons. We decided to order a beer and a small glass of wine whilst waiting for a friend to join us for lunch. When our friend arrived he did not want anything off the menu so we decided to request the bill to leave. The drinks came to 13euros and we were also charged 7.50euros service charge which we queried as this was rather extortionate. The waitress started shouting at us to pay it and told us to get out, pushing my pushchair with my 5 month old baby in. I cannot stress enough how rude and abrupt this woman was and to push my son shaking him is outrageous behaviour. This made me lose my temper at her which upset my older son. Terrible experience please avoid.

I had the mussels stew, and a seafood platter. Seafood platter was served in 3 big plates. Staff was nice enough to warn us not to over order. Overall the seafood was definitely a good choice.

We had such a great night at trattoria la grotta. No booking but they found a table for us. The service was fun and super friendly. The food - oh my god I had the most amazing spaghetti and seafood dish. It was absolutely delicious. We sent our compliments to the chef and all the kitchen staff had huge smiles and gave us a wave goodbye. These experiences make your holiday. Would definitely recommend

We had lunch here during our stop in Riomaggiore. The anchovy pizza was the best we’ve ever had. The spaghetti with seafood was also excellent. A very pleasant meal in the middle of Cinque Terre. You have got to give it a try.

La Grotta was recommended by our travel agent, and the food, service, and ambiance did not disappoint. Run, don't walk, if you want superb pasta, pesto and creme caramel!
