I wanted to try this place out when I visited Vernazza, but since I was travelling alone, I had no chance of getting a table. Some places are more accommodating than others in this respect. It's a shame, but I guess I can understand them not wanting to waste a table on someone visiting solo. I'm giving it one star,... More

This was our last dinner during our stay in Cinque Terre and it was one of the best tasting and most enjoyable. We echo the sentiments on how good the ravioli and walnut sauce is. The couple who runs the restaurant were pleasant and quite funny. Highly recommend to those visiting any of the Cinque Terre towns and especially to... More

We came back here twice the fish was the best. Desserts are worth having twice. Many unique dishes to the area we love trying all the dishes on the menu.

We enjoyed a memorable lunch here after arriving in Vernazza an hour or so earlier. We just beat the rush, so had a few minutes to enjoy the lovely ambience and calm atmosphere before it started filling up. We ordered a meal typical of the town, including an excellent anchovy appetizer, caprese salad, and pesto lasagna. We would have liked... More

The trofie al pesto was outstanding. I enjoyed the small pieces of potato they put in the dish. The vegetarian ravioli with walnut sauce was also great, but very rich.

Easily the best food and friendliest service we had over 4 days in Vernazza. TripAdvisor top recommendations, Gianni Franzi and Il Baretto, failed on both fronts. There's no pretending that the train noise from the nearby station isn't a downside - it's loud and occasionally ear-splitting - but most people are able to make a joke of it and carry... More

A wonderful respite after a healthy (some found it easier than others) hike from Monterosso al Mare. We arrived close to 1pm, and the patio - where everyone wanted to sit- was packed, which didn't surprise us, as this restaurant is recommended in Rick Steves guide book. We waited approximately 30 minutes for a table for six (6), and it... More

I had the local specialty (Which I can't remember the name of) but was layers of potatoes, onions and anchovies all baked together with olive oil. Fantastic. Great service and a little cheaper than the restaurants by the harbour.

We discovered this restaurant by chance after hiking from Monterosso to Vernazza. The food was absolutely delicious and the service was friendly and attentive. The owner took the time to chat with us as well. We had a view into the kitchen and it was spotless. I would highly recommend Trattoria da Sandro.

Freshly made pasta dishes, try the pasta with pesto, enjoying sitting outside and watch the people. Good wines, prices about average. Well worth the stop if you want a good meal.
