The outdoor restaurant is a great place to enjoy a leisurely lunch. The restaurant features locally caught seafood. The seating is rather crowded. Lunch starts at 12:30, as with many Italian eateries. Get there early, or be prepared to wait quite a while for a table. The service was a bit harried, though professional. The food was excellent. Do enjoy some of the locally produced wine with your meal.

I have been very fortunate to have travelled the world and back, but I must say that their scampi pasta dish is one of my top three favorites in the world. We stopped here for lunch after hiking from one village to another and could not have been more delighted. DO NOT MISS THIS RESTAURANT!

We so enjoyed our meal there with friends on the night after their arrival to join us, and the very special service from our waiter, that we returned on 2 more occasions during our 7 night stay. Their seafood risotto, veal, house pasta, whatever the 4 of us chose for dinner, was to be recommended.

We were visiting Cinque Terre because we were told we had to. My advice - give the region a miss. But this restaurant right on the harbor in Vernazza was worth the trip. We took a table inside rather than wait for one of the tables outside. We really enjoyed the meal and would recommend it if you're trapped in Cinque Terre.

We had a very good lunch outside at this very busy and popular restaurant not far from the waterfront, overlooking the Vernazza harbor. We split a large vegetable salad, and had two pasta dishes; my wife had spaghetti Bolognese and I had the house specialty of pasta with red mullet. All really good. With two soft drinks our bill came to 43E. The service is what you would expect in this prime location right in the middle of lunchtime. The 3 waiters put out the food just as fast as humanly possible. I see other contributors have complained about the speed of the service, but if you see a full restaurant you should expect the service to take time.
