I had been in "La Cantina dello Zio Bramante" many times in the past up to 6-7 years ago. I was very happy to have the chance again to come back hoping that everything was still the same. Unfortunately I wasn't that lucky. I don't know if the owners changed, however we got there in December (not really high season),... More

We stopped here for a quick beer and found ourselves staying awhile and ordering another. We went down a few steps, sat outside, and enjoyed the sights and sounds of the people streaming by above us. The beer was cold, and the little snack they provided was just what we needed as a pick me up.

Arrived on the train in pouring rain. Enjoyed the warmth, house wine, bruschetta, lemon pastries and coffee ( for Australian's who like hot muguccino) this is the spot! We were warm, dry and the light eats were great until our accommodation was ready. I have a feeling that this place may be party central at night! Interesting toilet door!

The BEST and MOST FUN place in Cinque Terre!!!! Do not miss the nightly music and fun at Gabe's place. I travel all the way from Hawaii for time at La Cantina Dello Zio Bramante and I always feel like I am at home there. I make more friends each time and I am so happy to have found this... More

Was referred here and apart from being so cool inside, they made great coffee. We stopped here and a big tour group did at the same time, but the ladies did not panic, and our coffee was perfect.

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. Part blues, part jazz, these talented musicians entertained us as we slowly drank some local liter of white wine. I didn’t see... More

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.
