The restaurant sits in the square overlooking the sea in Vernazza. This is the only positive point. The service was off-hand and dis-interested. The pasta dishes we had were both unattractive and virtually tasteless.

Fantastic location on this resturang but the food was really bad. If I had bought a jar of baby food (spaghetti bolognese) I would have been much more pleased with the taste experience. However, the locally produced beer was good. And the service was okej.

Beautiful location! Attentive service. I am giving this a not so great review because my eggplant Parmesan was cold in the middle. This means it was not made fresh and was refrigerated. The eggplant was not properly heated for serving. Pesto pasta was good. Pasta...More

We ate a lunch here on a busy afternoon in early July. There were plenty of available tables, service was decent. The trifle al pesto was excellent. The salads were good, spaghetti pomodoro was relatively bland.

After having a great Cinque Terre tour, we decided to eat at Vernazza because of the great comments about the town. But it turned out to be not a pleasant experience. The waiters are surprisingly rude. It was as if they were forced to serve...More

We've eaten here before on other trips and enjoyed the food and service. The pizza was good and my Fritto Misto superb. Good wine added to the view of the sea.

It was very hot when we were there and we were very happy to find a place with a view of the water and in the shade. Pasta and prosciutto with melon were excellent and house white wine was a pleasant surprise. Service was fine....More

I believe, for my wife and I, it was approximately 50-60 euros without any wine. One appetizer, two main courses, two desserts and water. We spent a week in Italy and this restaurant fed us our best food.
