We enjoyed a small meal here, and really enjoyed the owner. He is a musician, and they were playing Van Morrison, in English, although he did not speak it. Good food, fun time. I suggest you check this place out. The sign for the place is definitely a conversation starter.

We wanted supper but did not want to pay the high prices in the center of town. This quaint little restaurant tucked in a corner behind the train station had reasonable prices and a nice menu. We went in and were very pleased with our decision. Food was great and our server was very friendly. We would highly recommend this... More

Opposite the train station tucked away from the tourist crowds up town is a family restaurant that truly offers a more unique local cuisine in a setting of tasteful style and personal space. Our waitress spoke English which helps but this is Italy and the culture starts in the kitchen. My wife enjoyed oven baked sea bream with mussels and... More

This place had mixed reviews and we decided to check it out anyway given that its was just next to the train station and we were too tired to venture too far. We were pleasantly surprised. The restaurant seemed pretty quiet for lunch hour. The lady who served us spoke good English and was friendly in explaining the menu. We... More

We were a group of 10 (big family outing) and in vacation time, August, the village was full of visitors. Since it is close to the rail station, most tourists don't go there, so we had a table for us. The food is ok, although it is hard to find many vegetarian dishes. Also my kids didn't find Fish Fillet... More

Wonderful place to eat and the staff very friendly. It was a small place but the food was great and open with air which is very unlikely in any of the places.

I must start by saying the food was fabulous and a must dine experience while in Riomaggiore. A group of friends traveled to Italy in June and one of our stops was at this quaint restaurant. We had advanced reservations for the cooking class at Via dell'Amore. Several in our group of five ladies felt the cooking class was nowhere... More

This was our last stop before boarding the train back to Rome and we were glad to have such a nice, quaint atmosphere for a quiet lunch. The only other people in the restaurant were a group of guys that looked like workers on a break...so if locals were eating here we figured the food was going to be good.... More

We ate here two times three years ago because the food and service were so good. When we returned this week, it was the first place we went back to. Sadly, it was not the same. The spaghetti and mussels were ok ,but too spicy. The Sea Bream was good but nothing special. The excellent service that we had 3... More
