II Pirata is off the beaten track in Vernazza, Cinque Terre. Lucky for us, we had to do laundry and found this wonderful little restaurant next to it. It is very casual and the owner came out to tell us about all the items on the menu and delicious pastries that are made fresh each morning. The risotta was very... More

There's still a great selection at 10!! The pistachio pastry... More

We were looking for cornet with ricotta.We had discovered them in Rome a couple of years ago and wanted to find them in Cinque Terre. It was the only place in Cinque Terre that we found them. You have to get there in the morning as they sell out. Delicious!!

Since I have come home from Vernazza I have tried very unsuccessfully in finding pastries like those at Il Pirata! Enjoy them while you can...really everything we ate there - weather breakfast or dinner - was excellent! Staff was very friendly too.

Best breakfast in Vernazza- forget typical western breakfasts though (ie eggs) this is Italy so be prepared to eat like the Italians. These guys do the best coffee and croissants in vernazza (nine types of croissants!) so def head here for your morning pick me up.

Saw this whilst walking on our first day. We ate one evening and I had the bream with mussels and shrimps which was amazing. Breakfast the next day was a selection of 26 pastries. We had four. Simply lovely. Recommended place with lovely staff

We had breakfast and dinner at this fine establishment three times. Pastries are freshly made daily and orange juice made to order. Cappuccino was excellent too! We only had a chance to eat dinner here 1 time but it was delicious! My friend had the lasagne and tiramisu and loved it! I had the risotto with mushroom and it was... More

My wife and I visited and came here based on the Tripadvisor reviews. Dinner was excellent the first time (the mixed seafood appetizer was a highlight) so we came back for breakfast the next day. Breakfast was great too. We originally got the bruschetta, quiche, and a peach pastry which were all so good we got another piece of quiche... More

We thoroughly enjoyed dinner here. The risotto was the best we have ever tasted and the dessert of panacotta with mixed fruit was amazing. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location was slightly out of the main area and wonderfully quiet and peaceful. Highly recommended.

We stayed in Vernazza for just a few days, we had breakfast here twice (even though breakfast would have been covered elsewhere by our B&B) and had lunch once. Everything we ate from here was super delicious, some of my favorite food during our entire 2 week trip to Italy. The breakfast pastries are amazing, there's such a wide variety... More
