We were not greeted very warmly at this restaurant, but we were rewarded by a great meal. We ordered grilled swordfish and a pasta dish with pesto. Both were beautifully prepared and delicious. The restaurant was charming inside and every table filled with animated diners.

Trattoria da Sandro was recommended by Annamaria at Fontana Vecchia. Reservations were needed so we made them with a pleasant young waiter in the afternoon. We returned at 7pm and were seated promptly. Our waiter (Alessandro?) was very friendly and helpful. My wife had the Ligurian anchovy and potato Tegame alla Vernazzana which was OK but not special. I had... More

We sat at our table for at least 10 minutes without an acknowledgement, welcome nor menu, even though we know the staff saw us being seated at the table. Finally, after getting the attention of the staff, did we start receiving service. In a very small town that is dependent mainly on a tourism economy, one would expect much better... More

We've made three trips to Vernazza now, and Da Sandro is by far our favorite. Nearly all the food is good in Vernazza, but this place is outstanding. You MUST try their pansotti with walnut sauce, it's AMAZING. Its a little less expensive than the places on the harbor, which is a big plus.

My wife and I ate lunch at Trattoria Da Sandro on October 3, 2016 after hiking from Monterosso to Veranzza. Had the stuffed mussels - the sauce was exquisite and the stuffed mussels were amazing. My wife had the lasagna with pesto which was very good. Quiet setting away from the port. Highly recommended.

Vernazza was very crowded the day we visited. Most of the sidewalk bistros were full. We decided to eat inside and were delighted. The room appears to have been carved out of the cliffs. It was cool and relatively quiet inside. My husband had fried calamari and veggies while I had an octopus and potato salad. Both were really delicious.

Best Chicken Schnitzel and Chips. Great service and meal. Had a bite to eat before we did the great walking track back to Monterosso.

As part of a two week Italian trip we visited Venice, Lake Garda, Verona, Bologna, Lucca and now Cinque Terre. This place is by far the worst restaurant I have been in Italy. Possible the worst I have been in anywhere. Asked for tagliatelle al ragu and was told they needed the tagliatelle for a different dish. Eh... what?! But... More

The Tegame de Vernazza was excellent, wonderful, the best. It is a baked casserole of potatoes, tomatoes, anchovies, all fresh and delicious. Just loved it. The wait staff is great, the owner attentive. Dinner starts at 6:30, comfy under an awning, even if it is raining.

This restaurant is a quaint little restaurant just below the steps near the train station. We found this restaurant to be perfect. The service & food were second to none. We were served water with our food & drinks. The lasagne was sooooo good my husband had a second helping. We have travelled a lot of Italy over the years... More
