Sat at an outside table close to the water. Our waiter recommended a dish after we had ordered 3 others. Had to wait an hour after the first course for the second course. One of the dishes never came. Then we asked for the check and received a different table's check. Got the correct check, was charged for the dish...

Love spaghetti and clams. In Italy, the clams in particular are tiny and tasty. At Trattoria Gianni Franzi the dish was perfect. Garlic, a bit of oil, al dente pasta and a hundred tiny clams that we utterly perfect. I've had this dish in Venice and I thought it couldn't be that good anywhere else. Now I know...it can.

Review is for restaurant only. Pasta with clams in the Cinque Terre area is the stuff of my dreams. No matter the restaurant, I ordered them. Trattoria Gianni Franzi was, hands down, my favorite. So much so that we went back twice (in two days). Service was friendly and polite.

highly recommended. the hotel is at the top of the village, so you need to be on a good shape. the views are the opposite of the village, but i think it is the best place. The breakfast place is a hudge terrace on the sea, the best place posible. if i return to cinque terre i will stay there...

We were recommended to have dinner here from the owner of the apartment we stayed at in Vernazza and were not disappointed. We were told to ask if they have the gnocchi that evening as it is not on the menu. We were in luck for both the gnocchi & also getting a table right away even without a reservation....

If you want to splurge order the spaghetti with lobster! It is truly wonderful!! It will serve 2-3 people easily. The antipasto including sardines in various forms was also wonderful. The local wine was great. The restaurant is located right at the end of the square near the water. It is best to make reservations at the bar with the...

In Vernazza, part of the cinque terre region, you don't have many options for food. However one option is la trattoria di Gianni Franzi at the port of Vernazza. Apart from the average food, the mistake at the bill and the non friendly comments for the Greeks from the waiters the place was quite good, if you make a short...

Gianni's is a hotel which also has rooms up on Airbnb.  The Airbnb rooms are simple rooms with shared bathrooms.  There are only about 3 or 4 rooms that share the bathroom.  The walls are very thin so earplugs are very helpful.  There is also an AC in the room that works very well, but leaving the window open at...

This is a review for the restaurant as we did not stay in the hotel. One of our best meals in Italy. It was a bit of a wait to get seated but once we were situated, Gianni Franzi was a great spot to relax and enjoy Vernazza, with nice view of the water and cove. The seafood we ordered...

We have been loyal customers for many years to Gianni Franzi - always looking forward to the vongole. This year for 15 euro we each got what looked like a small child's serving. It was tasty but gone in 3 mouthfuls plus the wine by the glass was just plain nasty. I have written reviews before on this restaurant as...
