Best restaurant in Cinque Terre!

My wife and I stayed with Maurizio twice in the past couple of years right down the way from Billy's and we have enjoyed Billy's 5 times.

I went to Billy's for dinner on my final evening in Manarola. I booked a table for one earlier that day and was slotted in at 7pm. There seemed to be a little confusion about my booking when I arrived, but I was eventually place at a table on the terrace as requested without incident. I was the only single... More

My fiance and I went here because it was very close to our Airbnb, it was #1 on TripAdvisor, and a lot of the other restaurants in town were closed. We were a little hesitant because of our budget, but we went for it, and it was one of our best memories from our 5 days in Cinque Terre. The... More

Delicious meal with friendly wait staff in cozy restaurant. Nice hike to restaurant that sits on side of cliffs with views that overlook Manarola. Each person at our table got a different dish "excellent" is all I can say.

The best meal we had in the whole of cinque terre with incredible views. They were able to squeeze us in even though we hadn't booked and they were full. Lovely staff and delicious food and perfect coffee to finish!!

This place had good service, good food, and was fun. There was a lightness in the air, even at the very end of tourist season. The best food in town.

We found this restaurant following the suggestion of our apartment-rental and we enjoyed it very much! We tasted the real Italian and Ligurian cuisine with excellent sea-food dishes! Wines were good too! Prices a bit expensive but it's worth the visit!

This meal was SO good! Very fresh, and just super tasty! After dinner they gave us complementary lemoncello and it was so good! I hear the views are good, but we came with no reservation and were luckily able to be squeezed in! Go here - you won't regret it!

I would have never known about this restaurant's existence if it weren't for a friend's recommendation - it is very well hidden amongst the hills, almost impossible to find unless pointed to it. But wow, what a gem of a restaurant! It may not look like much, but the food is incredible, and very fresh! We had the lobster pasta... More

If there is any place worthy of the climb in this city of steep steps, it is Dal Billy. They opened at noon and we quickly grabbed the window table. What a background for a 2+ hour seafood indulgence. Pasta with everything from lobster to sea bass and a variety of fresh everything. We won't be back, only because Manarola... More
