There's a happy restaurant behind the front shop. We came here based on trip advisor reviews and had a terrific lunch with house wine, the shrimp salad plate, and anchovies - a great start to an afternoon sunning on the lovely beach.

I picked up some Pesto on our way out of Cinque Terre and they were so helpful. I tried various samples of the pesto before deciding on three and brought some noodles too :) I'm sad I didn't have a chance to eat here but hopefully you won't miss out on that chance.

Every morning, my wife and I would stop by for morning coffee and every afternoon,we would stop by for some wine and tapas. Everyone here was friendly and helped us pick some excellent local wines to try each day. The focaccia was outstanding. If the weather is nice, sit outside - they have 3 tables along the sidewalk and enjoy.

Set in a pretty street next to the church this local bar is great for lunch or breakfast. The staff were very friendly and welcoming, also provided the Internet for free without having to ask which was nice. I would recommend sitting for a coffee or glass of Vino and a salad.. Very good
