OK pasta after a long day of hiking

We came here in the evening after a long day of hiking through Cinque Terre. We had some average pasta dished, but some very small portions compared to the price.

The title of this review says it all! Run away as fast and as far as you can from this awful restaurant. My wife and I recently had the misfortune to have lunch here. From the start we should have know the experience would not be pleasant. The waitress was too busy speaking with friends to acknowledge our presence. My... More

There are many more places to eat. We wanted to have some diner, maybe a salad or a plate of pasta. But when I wanted to order something, the woman behind the bar made it very difficult. She said, maybe it would take an hour, or maybe two to get the food out. Well, I am not waiting for food... More

The chef and front of house lady made us (a rowdy family of 6 with no Italian skills) feel super welcome and appreciated as customers. We came here on our first of 3 nights in cinque terre and on the last aswell. It's the sort of place that you come to and then come back to again and again because... More

Popped in for a late lunch after a long hike in the Cinque terre. I was impressed with the lady who was single handedly looking after all the customers - brava. She was friendly and quite swift given the circumstances. The prices are cheaper than on the sea front although there is not as much choice as in some of... More

Again like previous reports after a very hot day trekking round cinque terre just fancied something tasty but simple. This is situated off the front and my wife had the spaghetti Bolognese which was delicious and home made, I just had a stuffed focaccia with salad and cheese which again was fresh and tasty, A large beer and a coke...

This restaurant is legit. It is directly off the boardwalk and I highly recommend that you get their pasta dishes and their seafood plates. There are restaurants walking distance from this one for twice the price. The service is not "fast food" speed but worth the wait. The staff we encountered spoke workable English but were delighted to hear my... More

My partner and I were after something simple and quick after a long and strenous day trekking the cinque terre. My partner ordered the gnocchi with pesto and I ordered the spaghetti with garlic, olive oil, tomatoes etc and it was lovely. Food was fresh and tasting. Service was excellent. A great family run restaurant at its best. Worth a... More
