“Great seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2014

After walking for a while in Manarola, we saw this restaurant and decided to try it. The view from the restaurant is very nice and the food was excellent! We had calamari and dorados and they were all delicious. As a major fan of seafood (especially mediterranean) I can say that this restaurant serves high quality fish, well cooked and fresh. The only drawback was that they were a bit late in serving the food, but the restaurant was fully booked and crowded, so I guess it makes sense. Highly recommended!

“best in town but too slow..!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2014

We will say this definitely one of the best seafood restaurant I've ever tried. All the food that we had were really really good. BUT... just really UNFORTUNATELY this is the longest time we had to wait for our order to come. We probably waited for almost 1,5 hours..!!! Really not happy about it, we understood that they're quiet busy & full but theres no reason to kept the costumers to waited that long and we believed we're not the only one. Some of the people from other tables seemed had the same issued with us. Otherwise we will say it's excellent because they're really good.

“An Amazing Meal by the Sea!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

My partner and I had read about Marina Piccola in a well trusted travel guide. We knew we wanted to tey a place by the sea and Marina Piccola had caught our eye when taking our evening walks in Manarola. The service and atmosphere were great and the gentle sound of the waves against the rocks was majestic to say the least.

During our stay in Italy we had eaten at several great restaurants. We also had some very tasty seafood while dining in other towns around the Cinque Terre.

The meal we had at Marina Piccola was certainly the best. We had the lobster. It was very well prepared and seasoned. As we watched the other guests dining around us we could tell they were enjoying their meals as well. We briefly spoke with the owner - a kind and passionate man - his love and dedication for the restaurant further assured our feelings toward Marina Piccola.

Whether you are looking for amazing food, a pleasant and relaxing meal, or both, we highly recommend Marina Piccola. If your experience was anything like ours, then you will be very happy you did!

“Good food, great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2014

The walnut pesto ravioli was excellent. Our service was not especially fast but the view was great. We found the restaurants in Vernazza especially Belforte and La Torre to be even better.
