Description: Il ristorante La Scogliera è situato nella via principale di Manarola, uno dei meravigliosi borghi delle 5 terre, a pochi passi dal mare. Il locale è uno dei più caratteristici della zona perché interamente fatto con pietre recuperate dal fondo del mare. Una delle due sale è stata ricavata da una vecchia cantina dove veniva prodotto il noto passito "sciacchetrà" mentre la saletta più piccola ha ancora oggi un antico soffitto con travi in legno. All'esterno troverete un'accogliente veranda circondata dalle barche dei pescatori.

was raining in the morning & mid day on 19.4.2014. we were not able to take the sentiero azzurro (blue path) which is the coastal route no. 2 trek from monterosso to vernazza.

we were early in apr so not quite the peak. there was still some crowd, and later commotion when someone was apparently pick pocketed. some friends went later in may & commented that the cinque terre trains were late but our experience with it was good, fortunately.

we took the train to manarola. the views were excellent but again the sentiero azzurro (blue path)trek between manarola & vernazza was closed.

manarola was a tiny place so we had lots of time & decided to take lunch there. ristorante la scogliera manarola prominently displayed its 4 trip advisor stars. must say we were not disappointed. indeed cheap & good!

restaurant was pretty crowded. we were early so we were able to get a table after few minutes before the queue formed up.

the lunch specials were all about 10euros & 11 euros, and the menu dishes not far off. my seafood spaghetti was about 11 euros, and it was really good very tasty dish.

al the grilled octopus we had at lake como restaurants & at miky monterosso were all good, and so was this & it’s just 10 euros.

this my idea of eating mussels – wholesome, hearty, a large pot or plate & very reasonable prices (& not the meagre 4 stuffed mussels at miky). haha. i think also around 10 euros.

my daughter ordered the scampi pasta in tomato sauce. and they really do their tomato sauce pastas very well in all the restaurants we’ve been, very flavourful & great taste of tomatoes.

this definitely a lunch place i would recommend for all visitors to manarola. see my full reviews & photos at http://chefquak.com/2014/07/29/great-value-wholesome-lunch-ristorante-la-scogliera-manarola-on-19apr2014/

We were visiting Cinque Terre and decided to eat at this place. Service was slow, so be prepared to wait.

We ordered a pizza to start, it was delicious. My main dish was linguine with lobster, which turned out to be linguine with tomato sauce and 2 pieces of lobster. It was good but was hoping for more. It's a bit overpriced, but then again, it's in a tourist area and there aren't tons of options so I guess it goes hand on hand. When we got the bill, we were surprised to see a cover charge, it's minimal (2-3 euros) but still, they should have a legend on the menu or something.

4 out of 5 in my opinion. Food was super fresh and friendly service. Great atmosphere with outdoor dinning and seaviee. Other couple of restaurants had better food for about same price.

My sis and I ate her two nights while visiting Manarola and we ate the catch of the day - sea bass -which was excellent! Our service was great and we enjoyed the atmosphere, dessert and appetizer. We highly recommend eating here.

We went there for lunch and it was packed. The tables are quite small and close to each other so it was very noisy. However the service was very polite and efficient. We were looking to try some fish and the waiter recommended the bass, which was caught the same day. We also had some pasta with white sauce. The portions were of a good size and the food was good. I agree with some of the reviewers that it is pricy but so are most of the other restaurants in Manarola.
