After hearing and reading glowing reviews we had very high expectations for Dal Billy, so it was easy to be a bit disappointed. There were four of us. I had pasta pomodoro (spicy version) which was OK but somewhat dry, my wife liked her grilled king prawns which tasted like lobster but were pretty messy to eat, and our friends... More

This restaurant was recommended by our B&B owner in Corniglia and we were not disappointed. My husband is Italian so I've experienced fresh home made pasta many times but here, it was delicious. The waiter explained which pastas were home made and also the days specials. He was very helpful and spoke great English - considering this restaurant is not... More

Skip the tourist spots and eat with locals. Fresh fish of the day, lovely pesto sauce and local Cinque Terre with wine. Prefecto!

This place was fantastic. My sister and I shared the lobster fettuccine and it was delicious! View was beautiful and staff super friendly. Only complaint was we had to pick lobster shell out of the pasta which was messy but still delicious :)

This place is solid gold!!! I made sure to make reservations for our party of 5 the day before we were going to be there in mid October 2016 to make sure there was room. When we arrived, the staff seated us at a great table inside right by the windows (all tables would have been great no matter where... More

We reserved an outside table, eating early to enjoy watching the sunset. We chose the homemade tagliatelle with fresh lobster, which had to be ordered for 2 at €20 each. We also had a mixed salad. Portions were so large that we could not finish them. Dessert was also excellent, chocolate mousse with fresh berries. Service was friendly and professional... More

We had two wonderful meals at Billy's. Their pasta and seafood is easily the best we had in the CT and all at decent prices. The place has wonderful views over Manarola and has a great authentic feel to it. Make sure you book - even though we were there in the low season, it was booked out both nights.

After having heard from many people as well as the positive ratings on trip advisor I was expecting a great experience at Billy's. The food was good but the man who took our reservation acted like he was doing us a favor making the reservation. He was again irritated and impatient when we arrived at the appointed time. The waiter,... More

Great food and excellent views over Manarola, you need to book for Lunch or Dinner, it is a very popular restaurant. Good value for money. with large portions, try the fresh pasta. Very steep steps to the restuarant and patio, so be careful

We shared the squid ink pasta with mussels and clams--delicious! Our waitress was hilarious. At the end of the meal, she dropped off 3 very large bottles of liquor--Grappa, Limoncello and who knows what the last one was--along with 2 shot glasses. When we said What's this? she just playfully shrugged her shoulders and smiled. Don't miss it if you... More
