Today we were lucky enough to snap up a lunchtime table on the outdoor patio of La Scogliera, and spent the rest of our meal people watching...people watching us...wanting to get a table. We were right by the entrance so jostling of table ensued, much loud conversation and pushing, swinging of purses and bags in my face while trying to... More

We booked a table so we could get Prime seating position.... We didn't get what we asked for, and people walking in off the street got better seats which was disappointing. Food was okay, over priced for what you get and the 2.50 cover charge is a bit steep. We had the seafood lasagna and the pesto spiral pasta, food... More

Totally disappointed, shrimp was dried out. Zucchini was overdone tasteless, dry and just plain bad. Salad tomatoes were unacceptable. Some juicy others were dead. Cheese was ok. We did not stay for dessert. Oh, and the house wine was just made two weeks ago. Overall water was excellent! Sorry don't usually give reviews like this but you earned it.

Had lunch here recently with 3 others. All meals were really bad. The lobster pasta only had 3 small pieces of lobster and an empty shell on top. Service was ordinary as well.

Pros: Pasta al dente- spaghetti primavera was great! House wine drinkable Calamari fritte pretty good, not salty Great for people watching if you're outside Cons: WiFi didn't work Tourist-trappy (but what would you expect on the main strip?) Calamari fritte not amazing, could have been crunchier The service was pretty good, but then again it wasn't terribly busy at 17:00

Il ristorante La Scogliera è situato nella via principale di Manarola, uno dei meravigliosi borghi delle 5 terre, a pochi passi dal mare. Il locale è uno dei più caratteristici della zona perché interamente fatto con pietre recuperate dal fondo del mare. Una delle due sale è stata ricavata da una vecchia cantina dove veniva prodotto il noto passito "sciacchetrà" mentre la saletta più piccola ha ancora oggi un antico soffitto con travi in legno. All'esterno troverete un'accogliente veranda circondata dalle barche dei pescatori.
