This was certainly the best meal we had on our visit to Manarola and Cinque Terre. Nestled in the hills above Manarola, it is an easy 10 minute bus trip up. The restaurant itself is small and cosy and you feel like a guest in someone's home. We chose to have the menu of the day and were not disappointed.... More

I had dinner here on 1 Sep with my parents. We were seated upstairs where there is a beautiful view of the vineyards. It was really easy to catch the bus from Manarola (c 10 mins). A young gentleman on the bus showed us the way to the restaurant and turns out he is the chef's son! We had the... More

We dined here on 1 August 2013. We had read a lot about this restaurant here on TripAdvisor, so our expectations were quite high. We were not disappointed. We had booked a table for 8 PM, and we were the first guests to arrive. We could choose which table we wanted and we chose the one by the window. The... More

This was a marvelous experience. Shuttled up to Groppo from Manarola, cozied into a lovely table and enjoyed the meal start to finish. The owners work extremely hard to make everything just perfect. It really feels like being invited in to a (upscale) home. Christina was an amazing hostess, patient and kind to every guest. She made wonderful wine suggestions... More

We had a wonderful dinner here in the hills above Manarola. What we like to call a "farmhouse experience" -- a special meal in a place all to itself. We sat in the small room on the top floor where we had a clear view of the kitchen. Interesting artwork and very romantic with French ballads for background music. Definitely... More

One of the best dining experiences of my life. Easy to take the bus from Manarola to Groppo, and follow the signs up the stairs to the restaurant. Ambience is casual and relaxed, we had our first glass of wine on the terrace overlooking rolling hills. Loved our 4-course dinner. My mom and I each picked the different course options... More

dedicated and passionate, they work out of his grandfather's house serving creative local cuisine that works in an enclosed terrace. Very flexible about the fixed price menu or ala carte, and reasonable for the surprisingly high quality of beautifully presented fare that tickles new taste buds with pleasure. Highly recommended, and no doubt the very best 'foodies' will find in... More

Cappun Magru is, as noted in many reviews, more difficult to get to than many restaurants, but entirely worth it! My wife and I ate here last week on our belated honeymoon, and it was one of the most memorable experiences in Italy, and ranks in the top dining experiences I've ever had. Chef Maurizio Bordoni and his wife and... More

This is an effort to get to but again I have to say worth the effort, for what was for us our best meal in Italy. Maybe it's because we are fish lovers, so naturally three courses all having fish will always win us over! We had the tasting plates which consisting of an entree, first and second course then...
