Best gnocchi and AMAZING lasagna!

Came here with 8 friends this past weekend on the recommendation of a friend and it was totally worth it. None of us were overly bowled over by the appetizers so I'd skip that, but the lasagna bolognese and the gnocchi with pesto and Gorgonzola is ABSOLUTELY UNBELIEVABLE!

Really delicious food served in a happy ambiance. The brothers who run this restaurant obviously take a lot of pride in their food, and make it clear that it is important to them that you are happy with what they've made you. The food is outstanding and presented in a beautiful way. They had some of the best bread we... More

You have to visit this place, tucked back in Vernazza. As they say..."you come here for the food, not view!" Delicious coffee and pastries, wonderful local dishes, friendly greetings and humor by the twin brothers who own, cook and operate this little jewel! Be prepared to bust your diet! We had dinner and breakfast.

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...
