Although Billy has retired in the seven years since I was first there, everything else has remained the same: The food is perfect, the staff is wonderful and personable, the atmosphere is friendly & inviting. It was a bit brisk to sit outside, but we had a table with a window--the next best thing. The server was utterly delightful--when I... More

It's our last night in Manarola and we decided to try the no. 1 restaurant on trip advisor. We called to make a reservation at 5pm and we managed to get a booking for 4 pax at 830pm. It's a short distance away from the church which is close to the top of the village and the sunset view is... More

We had a shared starter of seafood which was great. Then had a pasta dish each. Very generous portion size with lots of seafood in. Great views of Harbour. Service was great and very friendly. Book a head as is very popular and once you get there you will know why. Lots of free sprits at end of meal which... More

We tried a few good restaurants on the Cinque Terra but this one tops the lot. The views, food and service are unbeatable. The food has a really modern take on traditonal Italian seafood and everything was fresh and delicious. When I told them that I had read about them from Australia and asked if we could have an outside... More

Brilliant place - views and food. Book if you want sea views even at lunch time. Not up the hill so steep climb to get here.

My wife emailed the owner of the B&B where we were to stay and asked her to make a reservation for us, based on Tripadvisor. She told us that they are friends and that is the place they recommend for dinner. It was wonderful to spend our first evening in Cinque Terre enjoying an exquisite seafood feast that was served...

Its a bit of a walk up the hill but the reward is fantastic food, a great view and great service. We shared a mixed entree to start that consisted of 12 separate dishes, most were unusual but beautiful this alone was enough for two people but we had already ordered mains and of course had to eat those! They... More

We stayed in Manarola in July for a couple of nights and ended up going to this restaurant every night. It had a fantastic view over the village, the food was delicious and the staff were very welcoming. Highly recommended! Suggest that you book, especially if you'd like a table on the terrace.

We had a lovely meal for three hours. It was simple and wonderful. The fresh Sea Bream was shown to us before we ordered it. Our waitress was engaging and informative. The view is spectacular. When we were too full for dessert, three liquors were brought out for sampling, Lemoncillo, an herb brandy and something else that was enjoyable to... More

This is an amazing restaurant with an amazing view, the food is really really good, the staff is very friendly, and the restaurant is small and cozy! It is not easy to find and it is a little expensive, but trust me it is really good! The lobster fettuccine was perfect and be sure to try the cinque terre white... More
