“The best tuna fish ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We saw that this was a family owned restaurant and we went for a dinner here, in order to get some authentic, local dishes. I took trofie pasta, which was excellent, and my husband wanted to try some other specific dish. The waiter, however, very politely, presented us what he had special that day, respectively a very fresh tuna fish. My husband ended up taking that and it turned out to be the best tuna fish ever eaten anywhere else. The presentation of the food, the service and the atmoshpere were all perfect and it all created a very special evening for us in Vernazza. Definitely eat here for an authentic meal.

“Great Lunch Place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Completely stumbled on this. On last legs after hiking from Monterossa and just took a chance. Boy what a good decision. Delicious fish, flavorful food.

“Great local food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

This is a typical trattoria family owned. The atmosphere is very italian and wellcoming. We absolutely recommend what we had here: pasta (trofie?) with pesto, then stuffed mussels and fried calamari... to conclude with their gelato. By chance some locals pointed us this little trattoria, not easy to find, but just perfect.

“Cozy renovated restaurant with fresh seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

The seafood we ordered at Trattoria da Sandro and also the pasta were all well prepared by the owner/chef. He and his wife were very cordial and happy to have the several tables of customers who were there just a week before their high season began. We were lucky to be able to spend the evening talking with them about the horrible flood that had devastated their business in October of 2011. They brought out photos of the wreckage and told us their stories tearfully. They have done a beautiful job on the renovations and we felt like we were eating a home-cooked meal among friends.

“The food was ok, but very expensive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I don't think you can have bad food in Italy, but because of so many tourists this restaurant's owner allows himself to charge a lot for the food, a small glass of juice was 3.5 Euro, we paid 38 Euro for the whole meal and we had one main course (pasta for me and some meat for my husband) and a glass of drink (I had juice and my husband had a coke).
