“A great meal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

We really enjoyed our dinner here! Our waiter was friendly and helpful, and our meals (a delightful spicy spaghetti a grilled fish) were wonderful! The prices are fair and the atmosphere is nice (if not the most romantic...bright lighting a white walls). This was our favorite place in Vernazza!

“Excellent food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

After a full day of walking Le Cinque Terre we ended up having a nice dinner here. Not many places open in early Feb., but this one was. Had one of our best fish-meals ever here. Enjoyed the food, the wine, the atmosphere and the friendly service. We will come back, for sure!

“Great food, even better location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2013

We ate outside on a beautiful summer's day in Vernazza, enjoying fresh seafood and the scene of passersby after a long hike through the Cinque Terre area. Service was never rushed, though Vernazza is a bustling tourist town and plenty were ready to take the table as soon as we vacated. The menu clearly marks which items are fresh and which are frozen. We steered clear of those we could find anywhere, and went for local fish and pesto, which were both delicious. The restaurant even accepts credit cards, not always a given in Cinque Terre or anywhere in Italy. The only downside was having to walk the card inside and wait while a busy attendant had time to ring up the transaction.

“Best calamari ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2013

We try the fried calamari wherever we go and this was dusted with a touch of flour and flash fried to perfection -- not overdone in the least, still moist, and so so tender! The mixed fried small fish got the same treatment with equally good results. And, if you love anchovies, you will never have any better than these served with butter the way grandma (somebody's grandma) used to do it. We chose a local wine -- Baranca (?) -- to go with this and its mineral qualities really complemented the food. Ask for a taste first because this is not for everyone but it is simply great. And if you are ever going to have it you have to have it there. It is impossible to find in the states. We went back again just to have that and the calamari for a late afternoon snack!

“disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

The service was poor and the meal was served cold and unattractive. Overall a very disappointing experience for our first meal in Italy this trip.
