“The view can't be beat”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

We arrived in Vernazza late one afternoon after taking the train from Venice. We did not realize when we switched trains in Milan that the second one would not have a food car, so we did not have any lunch. By 4 p.m. we were starving. We checked into our hotel and went down to this restaurant, which is situated right on the harbor. If nothing else, it's worth it to just go sit there and look at the view. However, we also found the food to be very good. We started with a pizza, which was very nicely prepared. We were still hungry and ordered a plate of spaghetti with pesto. The pesto was delicious; I make my own at home and I felt this was even better. The waiter came over and talked to me about things to try to make my pesto at home more like theirs. The service was friendly and we felt comfortable staying as long as we wanted.

“Delicious Pizza ”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

Grabbed a takeaway pizza from here late one night. €7 and only took 8 minutes to make. Was the best pizza we had in Vernazza. Highly recommend trying this place!

“Tourist trap, avoid if possible.”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

The food costs around one and a half times what it should have, the service was slow and the toilet was broken. When we asked what we should do about the toilet, they told us to go to the train station... Cheeky at best.

“BEST PIZZA EVER!”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

We had lunch here on a lovely sunny afternoon. Charming restaurant where you could eat outside. Everyone had pizza and it was probably the best we have ever eaten! Dont miss it if in Vernazza.
