We ducked in out of the rain with 6 of our friends Oct 15. We only wanted a simple meal so ordered a beverage and some fries. Not sure what we did to offend but to pay 20e for our order comparing in size to what you would pay $5.00 or less for at most restaurants was insulting and should have been embarrassing to the restaurant who seemed to enjoy our re-action.
We ordered two orders at 10e each but they arrived on one plate??. Our friends took the order and we assumed ours was coming. We asked the waiter about our order and he said both orders were served on the same plate. Very strange. Based on our experience I coud not recommend this restaurant. Portions at our table were generally on the small side.

Really enjoyed this restaurant, in fact ate there two of our three nights in Vernazza. Service was good and the food delicious. I had the Swordfish topped with a sauce with black olives, potatoes, and tomatoes. It was to die for. Wife had pasta with pesto sauce. She was a happy camper as well.

The weather was not cooperating so we had to eat inside. A little tight, but not atypical of these small resaurants.

If you go to Vernazza Da Sandro is a must.

We chose this place because of the appearance. We had to wait 20mns for the table, but that didn't bother us, and it was definitely worth it! Best seafood pasta of my life, the sardines are a local delicacy that everyone should try. And the owner really made us feel at home. At the end of the night, she was very talkative and telling everything about the recent Vernazza flood and how much they had to work to rebuild the business. It only made us want to help and happy to contribute with our business. This restaurant is a Vernazza classic and a must!

The food here is just delicious, fresh seafood with very tasty sauces. Dessert was perfect. And the friendly staff and reasonable prices topped it off. Of our two week tour Umbria, Tuscany and Cinque Terre this was possibly the best restaurant we ate at.
