We stopped for lunch and from the outset we received a friendly welcome and good service. My husband and I shared our meals - stuffed mussels which were absolutely delicious and grilled sardines layered with tomatoes and potatoes - equally tasty. Highly recommended restaurant.

Trattoria da Sandro is located along the main street that led up to the train station. A nice place to sit down and have meals during lunch hours. We have tried the pasta with tomato sauce and found with good taste. Price reasonable and recommended.

A great restaurant for people watching, but average at best for food. When the train would stop, the street to be filled with tourist pilling into Vernazza. I had a pasta with pesto. It was just OK. For €13, I was expecting better.

There are certainly extremes of opinion for this restaurant, none of which I’d read before I went there. I basically ended up there by default because the village was so crowded there was virtually nowhere available for a meal and, as I was walking the...More
