Very good!

Service, food all excellent! Definitely have dessert! They also have a wine/coffee bar across the way. Very good wine selection and great for coffee and a brioche. The family/owners were very nice!

We had lunch here and it was very good. Fresh Tuna salad to start was way better than I even expected. My boyfriend got lobster fettuccine for 10 euros! and I got swordfish fettuccine. Some of my swordfish was a bit fishy but not enough to make me dislike my meal in the slightest. Very great choice for a meal.

We had a very good lunch in crowded Manarola. We were first asked if we had a reservation, and we didn't, but they found a table for us anyway. I had the Nicoise salad, and my husband had gnocchi with meat sauce. Both were very good. Service was good, and the staff was friendly. It is right on the main... More

We ate here with friends one evening. My pasta a la mare was divine and large. However just remember that a primi plati of pasta is quite small, being the first plate of multiple courses of a meal. My husband ordered a primi plati of ravioli stuffed with cod, and whilst tasty, was tiny in size. Food was generally good... More

We ordered a lemon & white wine mussel starter, a large mozzarella salad, seared tuna and ended with a marmalade cake. The food was generally good except both seafood dishes were quite salty.

We went as a couple and with the family. Each time all the dishes were delicious and plentiful. Desserts were innovative. Service quite good. Wine list and food very reasonable. I'd go again!

We stopped in here as they have a large menu catering for non fish eaters. Our food came out in an odd order, partially due to our waiter having misheard my order for squid ink fettucini and bringing calamari fettucini, and partially due to my wife ordering bruschetta and pasta as a main and my ordering said fettucini and sea...

Picking a lunch restaurant in a tourist packed small Cinque Terra village is worrisome but this place excelled on all fronts. It's friendly and bustling packing in quite a few tables but don't let that deter you the food is fantastic. The local lobster pasta was especially incredible and the four of us were in quick agreement that this was... More
