we tried all the 4 veg options available and we liked them a lot.. we chose 2 at a time and went twice. Although it is a bit on the backside but one can figure out easily. They also hav an outside seating which gives a sea view

We weren't use to having all of our meat with their heads still on and eyes staring back at us. We enjoyed the food a lot but thought it was a little expensive for all of the work we had to do to remove shells, legs and antenna from scampi and shrimp. It is probably better in the summer with...

Our apartment owner recommended it as the "best in town". It was indeed a great meal. We were able to sit outside with an amazing view.

There was a train strike so our plans to take the train didn't happen. Instead, we hiked form Riomaggiore to Manarola. It was straight up the mountain and straight down the mountain. We hiked over to have lunch at Trattoria dal Bailly. The strenuous, vertical hike was worth it for our last lunch in Cinque Terre. We arrived right at... More

Starting from the service: becasue of the croud we had to wait but the owner served us some aperitif which was already a good start as it makes you wait an not to look for another place :) We ordered delicious tagliattelle with mushrooms, then fish (catch of the day) and veal. The portions were enormous so you need to... More

We'd read good reviews about this place & so thought we'd give it a try & we're really pleased we did. Everything was very good. We had pasta with lobster & it was exceptional. The tiramisu was incredible. At the end of our meal we were served complimentary aperitifs, which was the perfect ending to our dining treat.

Billys is a great restaurant. I was skeptical that someplace called "Dal Billy" would be a good local type place but it certainly is. Billys specializes in fresh seafood, they literally have a plate of dead fish right inside the door ("out swimming in the ocean 4 hours ago!"). The printed menu is minimal and the waiter will ramble off... More

We had a wonderful supper here. The staff was very friendly and the food was amazing. By the time we had supper it was dark so we didn't get much out of being out on the terrace, but it was still comfortable and enchanting. If you're having dinner, make sure you make a reservation. After dinner was over, the waiter... More

After climbing over a mountain from Reggiomare, we were thrilled that the trail dumped out on the very street where Billy's, which a friend raved about, is located. It was about 1:30 and we were grudgingly seated. We didn't find the welcome at all warm, or the service very good or the food as great as my friend had promised.... More

We stumbled upon Trattoria Dal Billy without much foreknowledge. We were in for a great surprise and an exceptional dining experience. We got lucky and were seated without reservations at a perfect table with a stunning view. I do, however, recommend making a reservation. The service was kind and professional and dealt with us non-Italian speaking tourists very nicely. We... More
