Most of the staff were very pleasant with the exception of "one". The food was average but Yanis saved the evening. Very polite and attentive, we would go back because of him.

We got the seafood platter for two and it was delicious. Between two fillets of swordfish, one whole local fish, 2 scampi and 4 large shrimp we had plenty to share between the two of us. The do charge a €2.50 cover charge. But it was a yummy dinner.

Food is good - however a few points: You may have to wait a while before being served - distracted students serving You may ask for a choice from the menu and be told 'not possible' to then see someone else with the same choice! General mood seems to be 'we'll serve you when we feel like it and you... More

In Manarola, Marina Piccola was near the beach. It shows great view and good taste at the same time. In particular, seafood dishes are excellent. Antipasto was great with colorful and diverse seafood. Main tuna steak was absolutely wonderful in every way. This restaurant is one of the best in Cinque Terre.

This place has one of the best views in Manarola, but the mixed grilled fish for two did just not taste that much. Prices are OK and the house wine was good as well.

Although we trained each day to Monterosso for the beach, each night, we'd dunk in the little marina. The water is clear and cool. Great swimming just 2 minutes from our apartment. Many people make a day out of the marina, but we preferred the great beaches instead.

Order seafood appetizers and local white wine from Cinque Terre, sit outside by cliffs and enjoy the sunset! Octopus carpaccio was delicious.

My partner & I ate at this restaurant on our first night in Manarola as it was busy and in a great location for watching the sunset. We had anchovies for starter, squid ink pasta, tuna pasta and swordfish for main course. The food was very good and we enjoyed the overall experience. The waiter was very nice. He recommended...

Average food but a beautifull place to watch the sun go down after a day on the hilly trails. We tried their pasta vongole but they served pasta muscoli with a few vongole, without explanations. However, the taste was good. The stuffed mussels are just average

Good value. Good view. Fish was fishy and the service was not very good. Pesto pasta was good and the tuna tartare was pretty good too.

Thank Sarah W
