Lunch

We ordered pizza, gnocchi and beer. The food was delicious. Wifi was no good but we actually managed to connect to the Cinque Terre5 service anyway. Great food.

Wait staff is, blah. I guess they are used to a very touristy (perhaps rude) crowd. They have a nice wine and craft beer selection. They did have an interesting food menu but we wanted to eat elsewhere.

Free WiFI and excellent service. We sat outside for a quite bite to eat and a beer. Owners and staff were very friendly. Just a quick walk up the step to the train

Good coffee, okay pastries. Only ate continental breakfast, as leaving town. Nice that they were open early.

The waiter sings while he runs around serving everyone in the morning. Quick eats with many options and open at 7 AM. No eggs before 8:30 however. The locals get their morning coffee here, join them.

This place is great for coming to in the afternoon, my partner and I came everyday for an afternoon 1/2 litre of wine, great location for a bit of people watching and to relax after the days of trekking the trails, the service was fantastic, and really reasonable pricing! We are here a few times and the food is great... More

The waitstaff are fun, friendly, and may just ask you to dance! We came to the restaurant everyday for an excellent cappuccino and food and WiFi... We spent about 2 hours here each day. Sometimes the music was blasting Neil Diamond and the staff were singing. Sometimes the music was classic and low. Sometimes the owner was there dancing with... More

First, I must say that having gone to Vernazza 5 times, and having always spent a lot of time at Blue Marlin, must mean I love the place! The owner Massimo, has become a dear friend to us. They open early for breakfast, serve eggs (for Americans who can't do without!) and stay open until late at night when the... More

Our experience was great. There was no room outside so we found a table to sit at inside for a late lunch. The atmosphere was delightful and the pizzas did not disappoint. The server was a local and gave us some good tips of things to do. Yes, may be a bit slow in service but we found that to... More

Open early for breakfast, good coffee, very friendly service. We were there around 8am on a chilly and windy morning while most of the tourists are still sleeping, only a few customers, mainly locals there. The guy wearing T-shirt with a million-dollar smile on his face all the time serving us coffee. It is a great way to start the... More
