Great focaccia in the center of Riomaggiore!

Is there anything better than the focaccia in Liguria? This is some of the best and we tended to make it our breakfast each morning while staying in Riomaggiore in the Cinque Terre. I'm partial to the pesto focaccia myself. Also great for a quick snack or takeaway as you explore the region!

Sometimes it dosent matter what the food is like. It was not good and not bad.but the whole Riomaggiore is just fanastic. So well it was okay - just! On the other hand it was not expensive either and you get what you pay for!

We saw people carrying cones of fried seafood coming from this place and decided to give it a go, even though the place just looked like a hole in the wall. We are usually picky when it comes to seafood, but we were really pleasantly surprised. This was a thrill for the taste buds. The fried calamari in particular was... More

A hidden gem in Riomaggiore. The best pasta in town! My fellow travelers and I went here for a meal and we were beyond impressed. $5 for the best pasta throughout my travels! I had the walnut sauce pasta and my pasta experience reached sky-high levels of enjoyment. I NEVER order the same thing twice, anywhere. This changed in July... More

And that's pretty much it. From the outside it looked like a place where they take fast food seriously. It turned out, they don't really... It's just a fast food place. Nothing exciting. At least it's cheap and quick. As far as we could see this is the only spot of this kind in town.

I stopped by here in the mid-afternoon in Cinque Terre and got a calamari and shrimp cone for 5 euro. It was very good and quite filling, for a great price! Their other options include several types of foccaccia and combinations of shrimp, calamari, fries, and other seafood. Note: The shrimp have the heads still on them... I am not... More

I tried two foccaccias - the olive and peppers, and the sausage. Both were good but not great. The bread was a little crusty.
