We stopped for a wine and beer while waiting for the restaurant nearby to open. They were out of the Vetua wine unfortunately so the waitress suggested an alternative, however it tasted nothing like Vetua and I left it unfinished. She did however bring some complementary nibbles which were nice!

Stayed inside both times, tried a couple of different focaccias and bruschettas from the lunch menu. Focaccia Liguria was the favourite. Local beers are good if expensive. Place super friendly even in the busy times.

As a solo older lady I could not have been more welcomed here. Friendly service, tolerant of my so so Italian, and best of all yummy breakfasts. It also becomes a wine bar later in the afternoon.

A little place at the old town with very friendly service, which we appreciated after a snooty waitress at an enoteka earlier on. They have non dairy milk for those allergic to it.

The salad with shrimp was simple, but freshly made and delicious. They have soy milk which is rare in Italy, so I could have coffee. The service was so friendly and nice...proactively brought us the wifi code. Went here twice!

Stopped by here after hiking the trail from Vernazza. The lemon granite was so refreshing and good! After trying it at a couple of other places I realized how good it was here. Real pieces of lemon rind and the perfect combo of tartness and sweetness. You can have it with or without vodka and it is actually better without.... More

This restaurant has the air of being very average but all three meals were surprisingly good. The Branzino was excellent, very flavorful. Gnocchi was fresh and properly seasoned with pesto. Spaghetti with clam sauce was tasty blend of pasta and fish. Chocolate cake dessert hit the spot. Stay away from the house white wine, worth the investment to upgrade, even... More

The shops sells a large variety of local produces ranging from cookies to candies to pasta to pesto to their famous limoncello (lemon liquor with 30% alcohol). I was enticed by the lemon soaps that were on display outside the shop. After checking TA, I decided to venture in for their famous limoncello, which are made from the lemons harvested... More
