We loved Il Pirata! The brothers that own this restaurant are marvelous! It was definitely the best food we had on our month long European vacation. And we had some great meals The service is excellent, personal and entertaining. Have desert even if you're stuffed. The panna cotta is wonderful.

Our family was made to feel as if we were at home...except for the meals! We started with an afternoon tea and finished with dinner. Great food, great ambience. The Parmigiana Eggplant was heaven, but was trumped by the Seafood Starter of calamari, prawns, lobster, octopus drizzled with a delicious sauce. Make sure you treat yourself here when you visit...

While it's true that Il Pirata has no view, sitting on the road at the top of town, you won't care when you start eating. Everyone seems to know it's the best eatery in town, too, judging from the packed house (make a dinner reservation). We enjoyed breakfast there most of the time because the pastries and coffee and blood... More

One of my favorite restaurant experiences on my family's trip across Italy. Il Pirata is run by Sicilian twin brothers who LOVE food. I had an eggplant dish which was very tasty.. but the desserts were to die for, esp the cannoli and panna cotta. Do your stomach a favor and make a reservation at Il Pirata!

We stumbled upon this place one evening and were lucky enough to grab a table outside. The food was sooo amazing that we immediately made reservations for dinner for the next night as one couple in our group was not with us at the time. We knew that they had to give this place a try. The Lasagna Bolognese was... More

I presume it was the owner opened the locked door as we were looking for a bit of dessert and a digestive. When I mentioned my daughter said they had WiFi he repeated 3x's loudly for all to hear "Our food is terrible but our Wi-Fi is great!" Then he informed us that they only served dessert at such-and-such an... More

The pastries here are tasty and the owner will tell you right up front how famous he is. He's proud of it. And he doesn't make eggs...this is Italy, afterall. He has a sign warning tourists of this fact. Because, you know...he's famous.

Lovely restaurant near by the sea in Vernazza! Had a great dinner after hiking.... Very special white fish cooked in salt in the oven - delicious and nicely served! Atmosphere and food were great - price was a little high, but so what - when once on holiday!
