We stopped here for coffee. Sat outside and watched the world go by. Drinks and food was good. Quite expensive but you're in a touristy area so slightly expect it.

We went here because everything else was packed and they took us in. Expectations were low but we were pleasantly surprised, the food and service were amazing. We shared sardines over tomato for an appetizer. Our table had a shared bronzino, pasta with clams and pasta with pesto and potato (the best meal). Would go back again if we could... More

It's the first place you'll see arriving to Manarola, but despite the fact it's very decent. The food was good, and the open terrace upstairs was very nice to seat at. The lunch for two persons with wine and pasta costed 43€ which is rather good for Cinque Terre, and the service was nice and friendly.

We had the lobster pasta and salad while visiting this beautiful town. Food is very good just like most places in Italy but the service is what makes this place outstanding. You can enjoy food outside on the patio or inside. We decided to eat upstairs away from the noise. Our server is this gorgeous looking guy who speaks fluent... More

My wife and I ate at the outdoor part of this restaurant the first night we arrived in Manarola. The restaurant is situated right on a small piazza in the center of town. It was so good, we decided not to take any chances on another restaurant and went there again the second night of our stay. Ordered caprese salad... More

We had an excellent meal at Il Porticciolo last night. The only reason we ate at Aristides tonight was because Il Porticciolo was closed. At Aristide, the waiter was grumpy and surly. He added an extra entre to our order and when it came he said we had ordered it and had to take it. The steaks were average, not... More

Had breakfast there and had a ham and cheese omelet. The food was great but the service was less than mediocre. I was traveling solo and I asked for my check and was told I had to go inside. Normally it wouldn't be an issue but I had large luggage I had to truck around. Luckily there was another couple... More

We went to Aristide for dinner on our first day here and this will be our last time too! First off the service was unfriendly and the head waiter was rather unattentive. We were only given 75 mins to have our dinner since we did not reserved any seats which is understandable, BUT they took their own sweet time to... More

We dined here twice during our 5 day stay in Manarola. On both occasions the food and the service was excellent. The stuffed mussels are delicious. Would certainly return here again when next we visit the Chinque Terre.
