Reviewed August 1, 2014

This is a fantastic restaurant - especially if you like italian seafood. Portions are big and the price reasonable. The staff are fantastic and attentive. Would definitely recommend this place!

“Enjoyed this restaurant”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

We'd eat here again. No view but delicious food. Service seemed slow at the start, until you realize that the tables are split up among the waitstaff, so some waitstaff will be just hanging out while some diners are waiting for their (busy) waitstaff to get to them. House white wine was great (Vermentino).

“Good seafood every day”
Reviewed July 22, 2014

We had dinner here at least 5 times, and the food was excellent every time. Now mind that Trattoria Dal Billy is a noch up, but I still had to give Porticciolo five out of five!

The service is great, so subtle and gentile, even when the place is packed.

So after five out of five excellent meals, I can recommend this restaurant, but please ask for food from the sea, not meat..

Oh, and their home made desserts were a real success with everyone in the family.

“Go! But try to avoid the rush hour.”
Reviewed July 19, 2014

Simply superb pasta and seafood--pasta WITH seafood! A lovely little place, with an excellent wine list, too. Service is very friendly. Because there are only a few restaurants in Manarola, and the place is not very large, it can be very crowded and noisy at peak hours. Try to be a little early or late.

“Superb Italian Seafood Meal”
Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is always crowded. The food is tasty and fresh. The food came fast too. The lobster, mussels cooked with white wine, spagheti vongole are all superb. Highly recommended
