Also bought castagnaccio and it was tasty as well. After having eaten all we have bought, we went back again to get one more farinata and focaccia. Inexpensive and delicious. We... More

The line was a little long at 1pm on a Saturday but well deserved. Good value for excellent assortment of focaccia and pizza.

Excellent focaccia and pizza to take along on a hiking trip. Good prices and plenty of choices. Bought focaccia and pizza in three other of the Cinque Terre villages, but this was by far the best place.

They have cold beer (other cold drinks too)in glass bottles so you can make it a picnic ! I like anything with olives on it ...but why not buy a few... More
