Great spot for lunch and people watching!

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... read more

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.

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.

Vernazza is very small and not many restaurants to eat. We were looking for seafood pasta (pasta al frutti di mare) and this is the place that looked nicest. And we were right! Food was superb and not expensive. The lady owner was nice and friendly. Wifi works very well

We made a reservation for 8.30PM in the AM of same day for dinner for two. When we arrived the blond lady - who I believe is part owner - told us they had changed it to 8.00PM without telling us and that she had given our table to someone else. She wagged her finger at us and basically told... More

Perhaps we got this restaurant on an off night. I will not say it was a terrible experience, I jut think that it should have been so much better... The waitress (whom from pictures I assume is the owner) was efficient but I think she is in the wrong trade as she was cold and unhelpful towards us and friendly... More
