After having a not so great dinner at another restaurant in Corniglia, we tried this place. The pizza was delicious!! It was cheap and so good. We decided to eat it the next night. The owner was so nice. If you are looking for some great pizza, this is the place to go!

in corniglia you will find quite a lot of take aways and focaccerias. but this one is really the best - fresh, handmade focaccia in a lot of different ways, very delicious. there are some tables in the pizzeria to sit down but it is great also to take it away and eat it on the footpath during your hike! and Alberto, he is argentinean, living since more than 20 years in Corniglia. And he is really a funny, sympatetic nice guy!

La Gata Flora is a quaint eatery with interesting decor and good service. The guy behind the counter with the goofy hat is friendly and attentive. We had a few pieces of formaggio and they were all tasty and priced right. No cost for sitting as well. I can't complain about that.

Corniglia isn't the most happening town in the Cinque Terre, but if you're there and looking for a quick bite, try La Gata Flora. It's cheap and inviting.

This is an amazing little eatery. Just a simple little dine-in or takeaway, offering basics like pizza, sandwiches, etc, but with a good little range of beers and wines if you are dining in. I have never tasted pizza like this and would kill the owner for the pizza dough recipe. Toppings are kept to a minimum, resulting in exquisitely refined flavours. Would recommend this little place over any of the more posh restaurants in Corniglia.

Pizza is pizza, right? Not necessarily. This tiny restaurant, La Gata Flora, located on the narrow main "street," Via Vieschi in Corniglia, Italy confirms that there are good pizzas and outstanding ones. Alberto, the pizza chef, creates wonderful pies with fresh, top-flite ingredients. My wife and I have eaten his pizzas over the course of four years worth of visits to this amazing little town in the heart of Cinque Terre. We tend to order the same pizza every time we avail ourselves of La Gata Flora--the Dynamite pizza with salami picanti (we know it as pepperoni--ordering "pepperoni" will yield red peppers, so be careful) and mozzarella. We add black olives, onions and mushrooms. Heaven. The crust is one of the best you'll find--anywhere. Others may prefer the simple Margariga, fresh tomatoes, basil and mozzarella. The price, by the way, is very reasonable, especially after you've endured those 60 Euro lunches at the regional eateries day after day.

There are other highly rated pizza restaurants in Cinque Terre, and we've tried most of them. However, this humble dining spot, La Gata Flora, is the prize winner. Wonderful, consistent, affordable, and delicious pizzas. Alberto, the chef, is a great character, with his big floppy hat and jovial demeanor. Locals come in out of the restaurant, exchanging pleasantries as they enjoy the fare Alberto serves up. You can't go wrong.
