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

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,...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....More

Yes get over it- they don't serve eggs- they even have a sign- somewhat humorous. But what they do serve is amazing. We are not huge pastry eaters but we decided to stop her before our hike to Riomaggiore today. The pastries were absolutely the...More

We ate in this establishment during our trip to Cinque Terre. It's a bit out of the village of Vernazza so there isn't so many tourists. It's definitely the best lasagna I've ever eaten, thank you!

We had the absolute pleasure of enjoying a wonderful dinner here. The gnocchi was outstanding and pasta with seafood was equally as good. Very friendly staff and great service. They were so pleasant, we returned the next day for breakfast.

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.

Not totally up on what gluten free entails, but I think the seafood risotto might be. It was OK, but we had better down in town on the Main Street. A little place about halfway down on the left. Tables visible coming down... More
