Moreno and Sabrina welcomed our group (of 5) for 3 nights in a row. I have eaten at many places in the CT but this restaurant is my favorite on so many levels. Every night we would sit down and just say, bring us what you have made fresh today (and a bottle of wine of course), and every night was a winning dish. Best Fish Lasagna and Pesto Trofie in CT! The hosts were beyond fantastic and actually made the effort to get to know us. To top off the true Italian cooking and hospitality, the pricing was very reasonable. Don't expect fine dining, but do expect incredible food made by a passionate family and a relaxed atmosphere. Restaurant is very small, so call ahead for a table. Thank you Moreno and Sabrina for 3 fantastic evenings!

Also, if you are looking for a place to stay, their family also rents 2 rooms (nicely updated) for a reasonable price.

As mentioned below, you come here for the food and it is worth a visit, enough said. Don't try it and you will here about it from everyone else.

If your looking for silver service go somewhere else. If you are after fabulous food with lots of choice, helpful staff that are happy to guide you through the menu and make suggestions this is the place. Informal and inexpensive where the staff laugh with you not at you. A must try.

As others have indicated, this is not fine dining, and it doesn't pretend to be. But if you're looking for a very tasty meal at a great price, or consider yourself as a "foodie",look no further. We enjoyed our first meal so much that we returned the following night to celebrate my wife's birthday instead of going to a "real" restaurant. The chef offered to cook us something special - and it was - a mixed seafood pasta par excellence. We will remember our eating experience here as much as any other.

Tried this restaurant as it was rated #1 on TripAdvisor Manarola restaurants. It definitely has some goood pasta dishes priced at about 6-8 Euros a dish. We tried the trofie pasta, ravioli with walnut sauce and vongole. All were very tasty. Seating can be a bit of an issue though. They have only 5 tables outside on the street and they're quite close together. As mentioned in other reviews the food is served in plastic plates which makes the sort of place you go to for a quick bite. If you're looking for a place for a leisurely meal with nice ambience, I'd suggest you look elsewhere.
