The most exquisite location, great friendly staff (Andrea in particular) and very good food. Very reasonable prices for what you get (not going to the focacceria). Do not miss this place and then a dip in the sea if you're looking for a great riviera experience

The view is lovely, which is what made us choose this place (as well as its good reviews). The food was good (aside from the bland, dry "local cake"), though not worth the high prices. Our biggest disappointment with this place, though, was the service. Our waiter had an odd, unpleasant sense of humor (which is fine, but generally customers... More

Dear Customer, I am very sorry you found our food "poor" because it has no dressing. We are in Italy and we only use a little bit. olive oil and sometimes some lemon as dressing, if you had preferired something else you should have asked to your waiter and for sure we had something else or even he could have...

We had dinner here last week. It had been a nice day along the Cinque Terre, (22c). Pick a nice day and choose outdoor seating. Beautiful views, charming staff, great food. This ranks 3rd out of 30 for restaurants in Vernazza. It makes me want to see the #1 and #2 spot, because it's hard to imagine a better experience.... More

Gorgeous setting in a tower overlooking the sea. Sadly the food & service were only average. Grilled mixed fish had no seasoning nor did the poorly presented grilled vegetables. The caprese salad was ample but again bland. Having eaten at far less expensive places in the past week with much better food, we were disappointed. To clarify, nothing was bad,... More

My wife and I visited this fantastic restaurant on 30 March. We were on the terrace overlooking the Ligurian Sea. If has to be the most beautiful scenery of any restaurant, anywhere! Our waiter, Andrea, was superb. He welcomed us warmly, explained the meals, gave us space to consider our choices and sat with us as he took our order... More

My wife and I were seated on the outside deck overlooking the Ligurian Sea, just outside the submarine door mounted on the side of the tower. What a romantic site at sunset. Seafood is their specialty. The octopus ink "nero" pasta looked interesting but what the heck. Try it all in Italy; it's all great. The acciughe were a pleasant... More

We were encouraged to eat here by a waiter originally from Verona who was serving us a meal in western Canada. We were rewarded by taking his advice as we ate here twice on the same day. The first was a mid-afternoon snack overlooking ocean on one of the lower levels after we finished the hike from Monterosso al Mare.... More
