Very good meal & service

The Swordfish was an excellent meal. It was well prepared and presented. It tasted great. The service was very good with enough staff to make sure everyone was looked after well. Happy to recommend and return.

The homemade pasta at the Trattoria Sandro in Vernazza was first class. We had the trofie ( a handmade local pasta of the Liguria region) with shrimp sauce-the special of the day. It was unbelievably good. Our server, Leonardo, was very friendly and outgoing. His english was excellent as well as his service. He made us feel right at home.... More

Our waitor was so helpful and attentive. The owners Gentina and Sandra do their best to always accommodate and their spaghetti frutti di mare is sublime. On the quieter end of the village it's worth a trip. Ignore the passing trains and immerse yourself in people watching and drinking delicious local wines.

The bustle across the street is contrasted with the excellent service, quality food, and quiet atmospher of da Sandro. The fish was excellent. Highly recommend.

It was on my list to have lunch here as the stuffed mussels came highly recommended by a friend. I was not disappointed - they were perfecto!! As was the pasta pesto. However our whole lunch was spoilt by diners at a nearby table commencing to smoke cigarettes just as we were served our meals. We are well aware of... More

Location not ideal (I got hit in the head by a soccer ball being kicked in the street) and perhaps I ordered wrong but meal was disappointing. Would recommend Il Pirata or Gambino Rosso instead.

Vernazza was pretty crowded the day we visited, and after our walk we were ready to rest, get out of the sun and enjoy some good food and drink. Trattoria da Sandro did not disappoint. People watching was interesting - as the young waiter took issue with the couple at the table next to us who left after having drinks... More

Great seafood dishes! One of our favorite meals during our 10 day stay in Italy. Definitely try the seafood pasta appetizer for 2. I forget what it's called but it was delicious! We also had the catch of the day wish was sea bass if I remember correctly and it was delicious. Hope to be back soon!

We had one dinner and one lunch at Trattoria Sandro, and greatly enjoyed the meals. I suspect this is about as close as you get to gourmet food in Vernazza. We had their delicious marinated anchovies with both meals. At dinner we had branzino, my wife the filet, me the whole fish boned and served at the table. I addition,... More

Three of us ate dinner inside the restaurant recently (a little too cool for al fresco dining that night). The ravioli with walnut sauce is a definite hit! Loved it! Also not to miss are their famous stuffed mussels (stuffed with sausage and other ingredients). Yummy! Good service, nicely decorated dining room. Good prices.
