Come for a sizzling risotto experience

This place was right next to our B&B, so on a windy and cold night, our best bet is to go to this little gem. It was introduced in Rick Steve's book about its Seafood Risotto so we ordered that. OMG, the risotto was serving in a big hot pot and was still sizzling when put on our table. The... read more

We had a delicious dinner here in a very local Italian restaurant. Value is good and wine is comparatively cheap to other restaurants. The seafood spaghetti was awesome and so was the pesto spaghetti. 2013 Cinque Terre wine in the tall slim bottle is really good too. Tiramisu is one of the best I've had.

When we travel we have a strict rule about not eating on the main streets or near the attractions. We walk away from the crowds and explore the side streets. We have never had a bad experience turning left or right. Incadase da Piva proved our point again: turn right or left off the main road and you'll get good... More

This restaurant doesn't open until 7pm, no big surprise considering this is Italy. Lots of other restaurants in the area are open earlier. For one of our 5 nights in Vernazza we decided to wait and have dinner in this tucked-away spot. We were happy we did. We ordered the seafood risotto for two and it was the best meal... More

Tucked away from the main drag and quite popular I thought this restaurant would be good. But the service was disinterested and the food was awful. Reconstituted spaghetti and muscles tasted like sewerage.

Tiny Piva serves risotto in a big bowl, and it is good. The rest is awkward, as they did not take reservations, and appeared very strict on opening for dinner. The resulting atmosphere was not happy or relaxed.

We were hesitant to find good food in Vernazza it being the most touristy of the Cinque Terre. We found Piva tucked down a side street and had one of the best bowls of pesto pasta, and of course you must have pesto in this region, they are known for it here! Can't speak to the rest of the menu... More

We ate here twice, and couldn't have been more satisfied. This is not haute cuisine, but if you want local, simple, delicious seafood and wine, this is the place. The seafood risotto is really amazing. We also had spaghetti with seafood, and the very local anchovies with potato and tomato dish. Not for the hamburger-and-fries crowd.

This was a lovely little restaurant with courteous staff and a very relax atmosphere . The food was delicious , fresh and very typical of the region , simple flavours but they use local produce which is amazing quality. It was light and just perfect if your trekking around the mountains. We would definitely return .
