Fresh and Tasty Seafood

We enjoyed our lunch on the terrace outside, which quickly filled up with other guests. This restaurant is very close to the train station as well as an easy walk from the harbor. The food was delicious--particularly the fresh seafood. The food was hot and served rather quickly.

We spent six nights in Vernazza in November, and we ate at a Trattoria da Sandro three times. The service was extremely friendly, and the food was excellent--we particualrly loved the trofie al pesto and the stuffed mussels!

One evening we had an early dinner. When we arrived the restaurant was quiet but on leaving it was full. The pasta and seafood dishes were very well prepared and the taste was outstanding. While there we had the pleasure of watching a group of young Italian children have a birthday party. Everyone joined in to sing Tantii Auguri, the... More

The night we visited they were turning people away at the door because there were no more tables. The food was good, I enjoyed the pesto. Most of the restaurants in Vernazza serve very similar dishes, and all are good. A little crowded between some of the tables but overall a good experience.

Beautiful family run resturant. Amazing seafood - we had all sorts of seafood and all was delicious. Some of best we had in Italy. Desserts are yummy as well. Great wine. Staff were friendly. This resturant is a must if you are in Cinque Terra.

The restaurant is situated on the main street of Vernazza. We entered here to have a lunch there and we were disapointed. The minestrone soup was just watery and the fish seemed to be frozen. The tables are very close so it was difficult to go out. There is only one toilet cabin and it is a queue to enter.... More

Just had a nice dinner here. Nothing spectacular but tasty food in a nice setting. Service was unassuming and professional. Pasta with mushrooms was very tasty once pepper was added but overpriced a little...nice dish though. Yummy chocolate cake and panna cotta. Good meal, nice wine.

This is a small trattoria that was recommended by the lady in the wine store. We ate there twice. While the food was very good, the woman who appeared to be the owner had a cough that she did nothing to hide. She was ill tempered and seemed irritated that people were there to eat. This would have been five... More

Ate here 2x during recent stay in Vernazza. Excellent seafood & pasta. Not in the harbor area, which we found to have mediocre food overall. Nice family run spot with competitive pricing.
