Perfect!

Excellent food! Great selection of fish starters - AMAZING lobster pasta, with home made tagliatelle, best food we had in the area.

Grilled whole fish caught that day. Grilled vegetables too. Ask for inside, windy outdoors but charming. Good service. Need reservation.

I am so confused by the other reviews I've read here because we had such a poor poor experience here. The waitress was dressed so sloppily (she looked like she had just rolled out of bed and her hair was flopping in our food), the wait staff was all so incredibly rude to us (as if they were so disgusted...

We made a reservation at this restaurant and even that was "un esperienza." The woman on the phone shouted to someone else to make sure we could come (Italian just like out of a movie)...it was delightful. If you book early enough you might get to be seated outside (we did not). However, the inside was very nice. Everything was... More

Great food. The best basil pesto we had on our visit ( regional specialty you must have). The house white wine was good and went very well with the seafood menu. Food was fresh and delicious. It's a hike for those staying near the harbor, but it was just downstairs for us. My advice to anyone staying in Manarola is... More

It's as "off the beaten path" as you are going to find here... Because of that, I believe the owner is a bit more attentive to the quality of food than some of the other restaurants on the main strip... We ate here several nights, both inside and outside. The food was fresh, flavorful, and reasonably priced. If food is... More

Booking is a must. we booked on the same day, and only got a seat indoors and they were full at 7pm. Do try the mixed antipasto di mare. 3 of us shared this appetizer meant for 2 and it was more than enough. We had seafood pasta afterwards, and did not have any more space for dessert. I'd probably... More

Did we go to the same restaurant as all of those who said it was superb? We had dry uninteresting bread - this alone is a culinary crime in Italy - bad wine that cost 5 times what it should, a pasta made with a tomato sauce that surely came out of a tin, and veal that was a very... More

Very fresh, very, very nice fish! A beautiful restaurant located off the main street in Manarola. I would not have found this restaurant, had I not read about it prior to my trip to Manarola. It is located up the hill away from the train station and other businesses in the town but well worth the walk (only 10 minutes!)... More

I visited twice on a recent visit to the Cinque Terre. It was so worth the climb up to Trattoria dal Billy! The green salad was delicious with oil and balsamic vinegar. The first visit we had grilled fish and had to be reminded by our wonderful waiter to eat the cheeks, which were mighty tasty. The house white wine... More
