Definitly one of the best place to admire the city of Vernazza with a glass in your hand. Overlooking the city and the tower, the location is great and their cocktails are even better. 6-7 euros each including fresh fruits. I ll come back to LA TORRE to see a pink sunset.

Possibly the best view from a restaurant along the Cinque Terre. The food was very good indeed, the anchovies were exquisite, the seafood spagetti good (maybe a bit sandy in the scampi), the secondi was also very well done. For the cocktails they handpick mint leaves from the garden. Can't get any more local or fresh! The only drawback I could name is the speed of service: this is best measured in geological time... But then again, with a view like this, and with good food, it's ok to wait and enjoy life in this establishment.

It is up on top of Vernazza but definitely worth the climb. We are staying in the owner's cabin so we had to try their restaurant. Definitely the best stuffed mussels and pesto lasagna. Good food coupled with the best view makes it very memorable.

The views from La Torre are amazing and we couldn't have asked for a better spot to watch the sunset while enjoying dinner and drinks for two of our three nights in Cinque Terre. My fiance first found this restaurant 10 years ago while on study abroad and insisted we return here for dinner as we hiked between Monterosso and Corneglia. I'm so glad he did! The restaurant is terraced into the side of the cliff providing for views and privacy at all tables and even a small seating area for lounging in beach chairs or on a swing while.

The waiters were extremely friendly and service is typical of Europe -- do not expect American-style service as Europeans have a "don't interrupt the diners' experience" approach to waiting. But they were very gracious, helpful, and allowed us to stay long after we had finished our meals. The food was good, especially the antipasta and lasagna and the local wine excellent.

We will definitely won't be waiting another 10 years to return!

A super Restaurant to stop over for a quick beer after trekking from Cornglia.

The restaurant with the best view high up on Vernazza, Cinque Terre.

Sitting in La Torre, not only can you see the entire Vernazza, but also the distant Monterosso. You can also hear the splashes of the waves on the beach.

The owner Mr Andrea is friendly and very helpful!!! Thanks Andrea! From Singapore!!!
