During our two night stay in Vernazza, we were lucky enough to have both dinners at this amazing restaurant. (Make your reservation early) The view in and of itself is spectacular, but the food is equally outstanding. Our waiter, Andre, was a delight. He sang to us as the sun set over the... read more

Stayed in Volastra, used the regional ticket travelling from town to town. Upon arriving in Vernazza around 2:00 in the afternoon, we walked to the sea. We looked up and saw tables overlooking the sea. We walked the steps and were luck to get a table. No person really sitting people. We did get the attention of a women who... More

The food and view were amazing, and the waiters were very helpful with suggestions on things to do in La Cinque Terra. Great spot, especially on top floor in daylight hours.

My husband and I ate at Belforte on our first night in Vernazza...what a way to start our time in such an enchanted town. We reserved a table with a view and boy did we get a view. Absolutley stunning, seaside dining at its best. We were on a smal balcony with only 3 other tables, literally perched on the... More

We had booked at Belforte weeks before getting there as friends had recommended it. We arrived by boat to Vernazza and the first thing you see is this rock formation that protrude from the pier. Belforte was hanging on top it. We go up the stairs and there a very friendly waiter, Andrea, welcomes us with a smile and takes... More

Stepped off the boat in Vernazza with the intention of walking to the piazza to find a restaurant there. But when saw the tables on the cliffs above us, we went up to find the last open table. Menu has lots of choices and our meals were good, but you are there for the stunning view. Reserve if you can,... More

This is the place to eat while in Vernazza. Try to get an outside table on the edge of the cliff for the best views. Service may be a little slow during peak times since the waiters have to climb up & down many flights of stairs in order to service customers but enjoy the view while waiting. 3 of... More

Had dinner at Belforte on our first night in Vernazza. The view with the sun going down was spectacular. The service was prompt and friendly. The food was good without being fantastic. In July don't get there before 8 other wise it is very hot.

We emailed several weeks prior to visiting Vernazza to reserve a table for two. We were delighted with our table located on an small private bluff directly over the beautiful Ligurian Sea. Andrea was a delightful server and we enjoyed the setting, the service, and the food.
