We were three people, myself, my sister and my daughter vacationing in Vernazza. My sister had stayed here once before and highly recommended it. The location is wonderful not to mention the view from the windows of our fifth floor room. I will say right away that there are MANY steps involved and NO elevator. There were over 100 steps...

Was welcomed with open arms and given a spacious room with our own bathroom. Very clean and comfortable. Friendly staff. Nicely decorated throughout their building. Complimentary breakfast as well as nightly wine tasting, was held on the terrace overlooking the ocean and vineyards. Beautiful location, gorgeous view. Charming hotel with wi-fi available, (which is very important for travelers) and a... More

Avoid room no 1 of block 41. You are basically like the guard man. The door has no sound proof and door opening/closing is real loud. You could hear everyone that goes in and out of the block because main door is just below you. You could hear everyone that walks up and down the stairs because the room is... More

We visited Vernazza in the Cinque Terre. What an awesome place, but too many people. Had part of a lunch at Gianni Franzi. The anchovy lunch was pretty good, but my wife had the linguine pasta with shrimp—too salty. I think it was the cheese added to the dish (picorno?). In any case, we couldn’t eat it and the waiter/restaurant... More

Although there is a bit of a hike up to the rooms, the staff and room itself was quite nice. We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast each day there with a view right over the water as well. Wifi only available in the common room, located near the bar/breakfast room.

The Ristorante Gianni Franzi in the seaside village of Vernazza in Cirque Terre is a very nice place for a meal. December, when we visited, is a quiet time for Cirque Terre and many businesses had closed for the winter. However this cosy restaurant was still catering for the few tourists visiting the village. The menu is prominently fish and... More

This place is ideally located for tourists - great view and easily accessed. Still, the food was surprisingly good. I ordered the polpo with potatoes, and it was very tasty. This is a good choice. I don't have much else to say.

We stopped in for lunch and both had variations on the seafood and pasta dishes which were delicious. There was not an empty clam or mussel shell which is not usual in my experience. The servers were friendly and efficient which was good as the place was packed and not just with tourists.

We stayed at Gianni Franzi for 3 nights. Vernazza was a great place to stay while in Cinque Terre, with many options for dining. We chose Gianni Franzi because of the views, and it did not disappoint. Breakfast was served on a cliffside terrace, and there was also a peaceful terrace with lounge chairs overlooking the water. The room was... More
