Great restaurant for pasta and fish. You need to book before, the place has two sittings in the evening at 7pm and 9pm. Well worth going up the hill and look out for the pirate flag. The staff were very helpful too :)

We were having a lovely visit to the Cinque Terre, hiking, beach etc. Decided to climb up on a very hot day to visit a Rick Steves recommended restaurant on the top of Manarola. His book mentioned the terrace with lovely views. Once there, (very few patrons/ not busy at all) yes lovely but the staff was rude and refused... More

When in Manarola, do Billy. Fantastic quaint place, authentic food and people. Make a reservation or you will miss out. This was by far our favorite trattoria in all of Cinque Terre. The view is breathtaking as well. Ciao!

The unique mixed seafood appetizer and the mouth-watering lobster spaghetti was absolutely satisfying. The service was brilliant and the view from the restaurant was stunningly beautiful! At end of the course, Grappa was served free of charge Definitely the best restaurant in Manarola, very worth it!

We enjoyed one of best and most unique meals of our 3-week trip at Trattoria Dal Billy. It was our daughter's 12th birthday, and the restaurant staff and all diners sang to her. Food was great, waitress was a real character and made us eat every last scrap on our plates! She was hilarious and so cute. We loved the... More

Had our first dinner here in Cinque Terre and we are very pleased with the excellent food and service! We hope that some other restaurants will beat this, but honestly we are quite sceptical if that is possible...

Very clean comfortable restaurant good quality food. Although found the service could have been a little more professional. A young lady asked a question to a waiter " Is this wine full bodied" the waiter replied "no it's just normal" If the young man was unsure of the question I feel he could have asked another member of staff for...

We have been to Manarola many times and always eat at Billy's. Billy used to wait on us but has retired now but he is still around and we were able to have a short visit with him. The food at Billy's is still great. My granddaughter wanted some panna cotta for dessert but I told her no. Our waitress... More

If you are in the area, definitely have at least one meal here. The food was so good here we found ourselves heading back several times. We were never disappointed. It is a mainly a fish restaurant with a limited but varied menu. The food was outstanding. Wether it was the oven baked seabass, the pesto pasta, crab pasta, the... More

What a fabulous dinner we had here. One if our top Cinque Terre food experiences. We were not on the side with the view, but we thought the little cave dining room really romantic and we actually could still see the water from our table. Wonderful fish and desserts. Definitely recommend. You should book in advance.
