This restaurant has what you would expect from a good place in Manarola: Fantastically amazing seafood.

We passed by this place in the afternoon and saw that it was packed with day trippers. The aroma of seafood and happy looks on the diners' faces made us return there for dinner after we checked in at a hotel nearby. We liked the primi of fettuccine with swordfish and tuna, and squid ink pasta with scampi. The grilled... More

Great seafood, pasta and service! Always busy and buzzy while we were there. Decent wine list. Lovely to sit out on the deck/terrace.

We ate lunch here while hiking the Cinque Terre Trail between Corniglia and Riomaggiore. Our lunch was outstanding, although the wine and pasta was not much help on our afternoon hike. The hostess, Bianca, was very helpful and the food was delicious.

We were there late evening after taking a few pics by the bay. I ordered for their fried calamari and shrimps while my gf ordered for their squid ink pasta. They were alright. We loved however their tiramisu the most. The only drawback was the service but we think it was because the place was packed with tourists and they... More

Ate here twice during our 5 day stay. Prices were medium to high range for the area but it 's location is the best in the village. Staff looked a little jaded after what would have a been a busy summer but this did not distract from the food on offer. I had the Fritto Misto and my wife had... More

We stopped here on impulse because had a beautiful view from a sunny deck. The waiter was bored and inattentive. He plunked our food in front of us with a bag of bread and no other questions or comments. The food was pretty good, got better when I got up to get my own olive oil. My partner ordered gnocchi...

I'd been recommended this place, had to wait for over 1/2 hour for a drink then I had to ask for it. I was waiting for friends to lunch with. After an hour no one had come near me to refill or ask if I wanted to order anything to tie me over. Tried to catch the waitress eye to... More
