We heard a lot about this place, and climbed WAY to the top of the hill to eat here. The pasta was fresh (we had two different dishes), but was just OK... The tomato sauce was better of the two. The seafood pasta was supposed to have shrimp, but they were all halved, and the shells were empty. There was... More

Fresh fish, delicious pasta (that kept me wanting to decode the recipe & extend my trip just to taste some of the dishes once more - especially the seafood spaghetti with cuttlefish ink, mixed seafood platter) & a cozy ambience. The waiters & waitress were rather blunt, the confident arrogance mixed with just the right amount of pleasantness that one... More

Climb the town's hill to a good seafood dinner with a fine view. Place a reservation to avoid disappointment.

Found the service to be really good and honest, when the waiter brought out the 2 different fish of the day for us to choose from we asked which he recommended and he said he wasn't sure as it had only just come in! The fish was great (and de-boned for our convenience) and the calamari/shimp was absolutely delicious as... More

This place is kinda a hike, but it was all worth it! We were seated outside with the most amazing views and we were able to watch the sunset which was just perfect. The food was just exquisite. The seafood sampler as an appetizer is a MUST. We ate every bite!

When you first arrive in Manarola, or any of the five Cinque Terra towns, throw your bags into your hotel room and Run to Trattoria dal Billy, at the top of the old town past the church piaza and up the stairs aging the stone wall. Follow your nose to this gem of a restaurant. Make your 7:00 or 9:00... More

We were recommended this place by the owner of the apartment we rented and we were not disappointed! Fresh fish, great pasta and "typical" but good Italian service

Expected more of a tourist trap. The off-menu special appetizer of 12 small-plate fish dishes was excellent. The 12 different dishes were fairly simple and straight-forward, but also supremely fresh and delicious. Raw shrimp over potato puree, lemon anchovies, and the ravioli were stand-outs. The red pasta with lobster was fine. Good pasta, but not as stunning as the noodles... More

We ordered 12 different seafood antipasti and were delighted with the variety, textures, and tastes. The meal that followed, red pasta with crab and grilled bream, were equally delicious. Grilled vegetables were also beautifully prepared. Impressed with the food, the service, the setting.
