Description: Fantastic little restaurant, not far from Hotel Firenze e Continental. Great food, the chef (she) and (i think) the owner (photographed on their web page) are really friendly and chatted with me about my choices. He asked me all about my preferences before recommending a lovely local wine.

Friendly service, great menu selection, reasonably priced, not rushed. Had fresh porcini mushrooms to select. Child friendly and wonderful selection of books if so inclined!

We ate here on a weekday evening, having seen the restaurant reviewed on Tripadvisor. We did not book but it was pretty full. As it was a warm evening everyone ate in the courtyard.

Everything tasted delicious from the bread we had to start through to the home made ice cream at the end. The pasta was perfect. Two of us ordered what we thought was sirloin steak, but we were served enormous hunks of steak. The portions here are anything but mean.

Our only reservation was the very hushed atmosphere. Everyone seemed to be eating in almost respectful silence, and we would have enjoyed a bit more atmosphere from our fellow diners.

After consulting tripadvisor the 4 of us had dinner in the restaurant. It was sooo good we went there for a second time in a week and asked the owner to prepare us a surprise dinner. It was for my birthday and omg it was THE best. We had 6 fantastic courses with fish and to finish it of a beautiful birthday cake. The food ,proseco and wine were just beautiful. Very very good value for money. I would definitely recommend this.

We went here twice in one week and it was both time the meals were outstanding! The place is run by a very friendly owner and his wife (He is front of house and she is The chef), not pushy and very polite.

We booked a table for 6 people and when we arrived, the owner guided us to a table inside where it was actually too hot to eat. After a great meal with well chosen ingredients, simple but tasteful cooking and two bottles of great wine we asked for the 'conto' and surprisingly enough we saw that the the owner had deduct 22 Euro (!!) from the bill with the message "Sorry for the hot!". Unbelievable.

As a compensation we booked a second time a few days later.
Because it was the 1st wedding anniversary of our friends, the owner surprised us again and prepared a beautiful house cake specially for us! It was DELICIOUS!

We were literally spoiled and charmed. Thanks great experience

We visited this small osteria on our trip to Cinque Terre. The food was very good. The setting was traditional with a small garden in the back. There were mostly local patrons. Service and customer attention was an unique experience to us. The owner personally helped us about the menu. When we asked him where we can park our car securely and less costly while we are in Cinque Terre for a week, he offered to guide ıs by his car to the parking lot. Of course we gladly accepted it. He even drove us to the train station afterwards. This experience has turned out to be the best piece of my portfolio to tell the friends.
