Our Final Italian Meal

A great way to end our stay in Italy with a very good meal here. We sat outside and enjoyed the warm October evening. The wine was good and the meals of mussels in garlic and oil and salmon with penne, exceptional. Really wish we could have stayed another night to taste more of their offerings... read more

Our party of 6 ate here upon the recommendation of a local tour guide. WOW - all of us were so appreciative of her recommendation. We dined at a nice covered street side table so we could enjoy the beautiful day. Everyone ordered something different, mostly seafood oriented and it was all delicious. Marinated white anchovies, stuffed mussels, mussels in... More

One of the best meals I have ever had. The seafood was so fresh and the gnocchi was out of this world. The service was great, but each person was charged a three euro service charge so beware. Delicious, cheap wine.

A bit pretentious and the food was good, but not great. Since the prices are a bit higher than other places, it should have been great.

We ate here for dinner one evening and it was exceptional! We were lucky enough to be seated at a small two person table, next to a window that looked in on the kitchen. What a treat to be able to watch them prep and cook the meals. While we were there it was very busy -- always a good... More

We heard about this tiny, on the Main Street restaurant from 3 sources. Normally that makes me wary, but when we ran into people we had met who loved it, we gave it a try. Then another. Would have gone back again but we had to leave. Truly good food- seafood out of the sea daily with pasta dishes that... More

The gnocchi was out of this world and we also had trofie with red pesto that was the best pesto I've ever had. Our server was super attentive and the tiramisu was also phenomenal. The restaurant itself is lovely and the styling is charming. A great meal!

I had a mixed seafood salad that was very fresh, followed by a Spaghetti Marinara that arrived in a big earthened pot. Their portions are generous compared to other restaurants here. The Cinque Terre red and white wines come in 375 ml bottle which is handy for single diner. I was not surprised when the couple seated next to me... More

Was recommended to us. The atmosphere was very nice. The pasta dishes were huge portions for a very reasonable price. House Wine was solid (Chianti Classic).
