We went to Billy’s based on TripAdvisor for lunch since we did not have reservations for dinner, a good trick on popular places to eat. Our waitress was lovely, funny and very helpful with the menu, though based on other popular seafood restaurants in the area a little pricey. Yes the seafood is fresh but that is common on the...

My husband and I had never liked anchovies....until we had them at Billy's -- we had them 3 times and I most liked them in the lemon sauce. We also had a white fish - "Bream" - which was prepared with olives, tomatoes, and potatoes....mmm...simple preparations and such memorable food. We returned two days later for lunch and had the...

This is a great restaurant. The antipasto del mare is a full meal in itself and the best seafood antipasto we have had in Italy, followed by spaghetti with lobster. All delicious and extremely good value. Can be a challenge to find and get there early because It is popular. You will need to book if you want an outdoor... More

Dined here on our first night and wish we went back! We had a great server who know his local wine, and though it was a super busy night we weren't rushed at all. The mixed grill to share for main was heaven! And the squid ink seafood pasta was one of the best we've had. The wine and limoncello... More

We dine at Dal Billy only once but we wish we had more. The food is really good and the location and the view add to the atmosphere. Book in advance.

service is a bit brusque but probably because they're very popular and super busy. Food is superb and arrives in a timely fashion despite the fact that they're so busy. Fresh and delicious.

This was not my first time at "Da Billy". For terrace dinner they have two shifts (at 7.00 pm and at 9.00 pm). The view is amazing and the fish is always very fresh and properly cooked ( I personally recommend the mixed sea food selection for two person). The wine list is not huge, I generally have local white... More

In our 3 night stay in Manarola we were referred to Billy's as the best restaurant in town. Although the food was delicious, this place lacks good service. I felt I was in a fish market with raw fish exhibited and the smell also did not impress! I think if you are looking for a good experience for your evening,... More

After reading all the positive comments about this restaurant we thought of trying it ourselves.I know these people are very busy but somehow we missed the friendliness of the staff. We waited about 15 minutes before being waited on and given the menu. Others have mentioned that the specials are explained...not with us. A basket of bread was put before... More

In my opinion, the best restaurant in Manarola (and they are all great). Really fresh seafood, excellent waiters, and fantastic view. Don't miss the antipasta of mixed seafood (for 2).
