Stop by earlier in the day if you can to make a reservation. It’s very informal but the food is delicious :)

I did see signs there about rooms as well, but that is all I know about. We booked a room at larosadeiventi right across the street. It was spotless and spacious. Have a great trip!

As you get off the train and go down the stairs, there is a street to the right . The cafe is still on the top of the hill. If you go straight down the hill on the main street of Vernazza, you'll miss it.
