We booked a table al fresco and arrived just before a magnificent sunset.

Whilst my husband ordered the wine I ducked out to the other side of the harbour and took some fabulous shots of the sunset.

Marina Piccola has an al fesco dining area near the harbour and also an enclosed indoor area.

We enjoyed the entire evening here. The food was very tasty - we had pasta and fish dishes. The service was unremarkable. So what's not to like?

My wife and I had dinner and decided to go early so that we could have a seat with a good view and we were accommodated with a seat overlooking the harbor. The menu offered mostly seafood which is what we were looking for.

Soon we found that the seat we were given was right on a busy street and that the cigarette smoke and the sun, which was blistering hot was a problem. We asked to be moved and after some heated discussion we told them to give us the bill for our drinks and we would find another restaurant.

The waitress agreed and huffed off to the office. Almost immediately, a gentleman who must have been the owner came out and asked us if another seat would work for us and we agreed.

The waitress returned and we started to order. Because several of the menu options only for two people we were very limited in what worked for us so I asked if it is possible to get a single serving even if there was a up charge. The waitress went off on us and walked away. Again, the owner arrived in a minute or two and with a little discussion and understanding we had a deal.

We ate our dinner but really did not enjoy our meal due to the attitude of the waitress who was discussing us with a co-worker, thinking that we did not understand what she was saying. While we do not speak Italian well, we do understand enough to know that she was basically and loudly calling us names that could easily be heard by the owner of the restaurant, who did nothing.

Oh well, you win some and loose some. Every dining experience in Manarola was fantastic.

The Marina Piccola bed and breakfast is a perfect location to experience the waterfront of Manarola. The view of the waterfront is very dramatic from their restaurant...which serves delicious, fresh seafood.

Are here based on the recommendation of another blogger. Great view of the ocean. We had Ravioli in Walnut Sauce and Pesto and both enjoyed the food. The waitress was definitely not friendly, but maybe it was just her? I would recommend this place, just realize you will be paying for what you get.

Im still in shock. I went to eat here with my girlfriend and after 40 minutes or so we were outside. We started with mixed fish which was horrible. No flavour. And you pay 16 euro for as little as it is. The main course were calamaris but only the scissors you get No meat at all. I had sword fish. It was Cold, poor quality and they used the microweave!
