friendly small bar

We popped in for a late night drink. Live musicians were in residence & it was pretty lively. Prices were OK & the staff were extremely friendly.

We stopped in on a whim and asked if they would do a wine tasting. What followed was our favorite memory from Cinque Terre. The original owner's grandson conducted the tasting of a white, a red, and a dessert wine paired with small plates. He was very knowledgeable, personable, and passionate about wine and the history of the restaurant. We... More

Just spotted this cafe while visiting Manarola by train from Monterosso. Great spot for an early morning coffee or a beer or wine after a hike or walk around the area. Friendly service, decent prices and both indoor and outdoor seating.

It was late, we were tired after spending a (wonderful) day traipsing to all corners of the Cinque Terre. We had watched the sun set over the Mediterranean, had a lovely seafood meal and were walking slowly up the steep, main drag of Manarola and thinking only about sleep. As we walked past the Cantina, we heard some lovely music... More

Who knew there were so many things that could be done with anchovies? Had a quick bite here. Great atmosphere and food. Music better than elsewhere in Manarola.

It seems to be a lively bar with music at night - but in the afternoon it's calm, relaxed, dark, small, sometimes quite empty. Which is perfect when you drop in after walking and visiting, and simply want to sip a glass of wine to recharge and want to get away from the high-season crowds in flipflops.

taverna to spend a relaxing night with friends or partner..the antipasti are simple italian classics that go really well with the red wines available...lovely entertainment with live jazz/blues! Live music is not on every night, ask the owner in the afternoon...

This cosy place makes the best mojitos and its served with salty snacks. Take away prices on wine - that you can bring to the cliffs and watch the sunset :-)

My travel agent booked a private wine tasting for me at this little enoteca/bar/jazz club. Late afternoons in Manarola can be hot and humid so my 4PM wine tasting in this cave-like enoteca was a pleasure. The below ground space has been completely renovated but still has that old Italy character that I love. My wine tasting included a glass... More
