Fun place for late night dinner, drinks, and music

The first night we dropped into Cantina dello Zio Bramante, a little tavern with basic food and a live local band with a harmonic player that totally looked like he was in the cast of the Jersey Shore.

Beautiful place for wine, beer, bruschette, and antipasti. Great hideout from the sun with live music and friendly service.

We had lunch in this restaurant after a hard mountain hike from Riamaggiore in a super hot day. It was lovely and cool inside and we had basic but delicious food, some aperitif and cold drinks. The service was efficient and the place was cosy and welcoming. I do recommend it to anyone visiting Manarola.

Nice people, great vibe and fun music! A wonderful way to end the night after dinner at trattoria da billy - a bottle of wine and listening to the music until the wee hours - wish we could have stayed longer.

Great little place, came here every morning for a week for a capuccino, the best in cinque terre. Good live music at nights. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed this place. We went inside to escape from the heat and it was nice and cool inside. The staff were friendly and the service was good. We had a Crostini, a salad and a pasta along with a bottle of water and two glasses of wine. The total bill was 28 euros which seemed like a steal.... More

Entered and had a couple of tailor made sandwiches. Made with the cure a business owner would put, preceeded by free mini starters, followed by local distilled liqueurs. Recommended, the guy is refined and careful to his job. Claps deserverd!

My Mum and I visited Manarola as part of a trip for her 60th birthday during March 2014 and fell in love with this place. I couldn't remember what it was called and have only just come across it - I had to leave a review, despite it being so late! We were the first tourists of their season and... More

As others have said, you walk into this bar for one drink and end up staying for a couple. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed and the music is fabulous. Friendly staff

I sat outside with my girlfriend on the tiny low terrace. A glass of wine in a perfect sun trap. Zero to brown in one hour. That's fast. We enjoyed it.
