Great and fresh seafood

We asked our hotel do book a table at Trattoria Dal Billy, I would recommend everyone to do the same. The restaurant is small but has a great view. The service was great, the only "problem" was that we ordered the starter mix with 12 plates and the "fish of the day". The starter was really... read more

This restuarant was recommended to my Mum and I by a relative of the owner we met in the pub and so glad he did! We arrived without a booking on an unexpectedly busy night but were nonetheless accomodated and found a table by itself outside (which suited us perfectly). We had a 12 plate seafood tasting starter and a... More

The food was fresh and amazing. The service was a bit brusque but the food was so great it didn't matter

We stayed in Manarola and had heard that this was the place to go in town. Now, there aren't a lot of options to begin with, so I was a bit skeptical. But after a long day of travel, we dropped off our bags at our little B&B in town and walked.... more like limped, 10 yards to the restaurant.... More

Our host recommended this restaurant and set us up with a reservation and we were so glad she did. The seafood here is incredible. We eat seafood all the time and have never had an experience like this. Our waiter recommended the 12 course seafood sampler and every dish was better than the last one. We could barely eat the...

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
