Best Dinner in Italy

We went for dinner on our first night in Cinque Terre, without a reservation. The restaurant was packed, and we were lucky to be given a table inside, close to the counter and kitchen. The views over Manarola and the sea from the various tables outside are beautiful, especially during sunset. Service was friendly and efficient, and the dishes we... More

First dinner in Cinque Terre! Really nice place, gave us a table even if we did not reserve....last table! You can't get fresher fish!! I am a fussy eater when it comes to seafood, so i had to stick to pasta (which was still pretty good), but my husband loved it!! Good service!

Okay, so I've been traveling non-stop for the past year so as you can guess I've eaten at heaps of restaurants and I can honestly say this is the best restaurant I've ever been to in my life! Me and my boyfriend ate here twice in our 3 nights in Manarola and both occasions were simply perfect. The first night... More

I've been meaning to review this place for a while, it's stuck at the front of my head everytime I have fish or Italian, I'm always comparing it to Billys...... Billy's is amazing. We went there twice in our 5 days there and both times it was of very good standard. The second time we went we managed to get... More

Its not Trattoria Dal Billy's fault that its too touristy. There aren't that many restaurants in Manarola and there are a lot of tourists, so all of them are full with, well, tourists. There were Americans all around us when we dined in the relatively small outdoor eating area, pretty much at every table. This made it difficult for us... More

We had the most wonderful service from a waiter (sadly can't remember his name) and the food was spectacular, especially the shared tasting dishes and the lobster - i think it was spaghetti - my husband and friend shared it. He still dreams about it!

We dined here in November 2014 on the last night it was open for the season. We sat in the outside area and it was great. Service was great and the food was just divine....a great way to conclude our stay in Manarola. The provided fresh bread when we sat down, which we didn't request and thought was free only... More

Nice little restaurant, though like many places here does feel a little touristy. However, the food was nice and the service friendly. Amazing views over the sea. At the end of the meal they brought us massives bottle of grappa and limoncello and left them for us to serve ourselves with! A good option along the villages of the cinque... More

We were five hungry Indonesians after the climb to reach Da Billy's. The welcome was friendly, the owner's friend stepping-in as our host for the evening gave us great suggestions on what to order. We were offered a big freshly caught fish of the day but as we wanted to taste as many dishes as possible, regretfully we passed it... More
