First night of our trip. We couldn't hold back on the delights of the menu and over did it .... everything was fab! Our waiter was attentive and the food & wine did not disappoint. My favourite? The Seafood spaghetti..... yummmmm!

We walked in randomly for a late lunch/early dinner and this ended up being one of our best meals in Italy. I have a gluten allergy and their menu was very accommodating (they list allergens under each dish) I ordered the white bean salad, the tuna tartar, and the prosciutto on melon.... omg all of them were amazing. Especially the... More

This was recommended by our guesthouse host, and it is our first night in Vernazza. So we tried and was just average to us. However if u want to view sunset, this is the place as it is at end of the main street facing the sea. One good mention is the minestrone, which is wholesome and tasty. My daughter... More

Excellent food. Fresh, not sophisticated yet tasty and highly satisfying. The service is prompt and correct. The red wine vino de la casa is recommended as well as the mixed fried fish. Coffee is superb. Skip the dessert. Part and parcel of the uplifting experience of visiting this small village.

Given this restaurant is very much in the beaten track and in the most photographed village in Italy - Vernazza - it could sit on its laurels, but we were really impressed by the quality of the food, even if the service was little eccentric. We arrived hungry for lunch after waking from Riomaggiore and sat inside on a chilly... More

There were only 3 restaurants open and this was the only one with indoor seating. Like another bad review in Feb 2017, we had a very bad feeling as soon as we entered. The service could not have been worse. The food was terrible and expensive. I travel a lot worldwide on business. This was one of my worst meals... More

It's down by the water and nice outdoor seating. Pay a little extra for atmosphere. Food was good. Tried the anchovy stew. Not actually a stew, more like a casserole. Very flavorful. Mixed grilled fish, large portion, just average. Service just average.

Nice charming restaurant located on the main square by the port. Good quality, traditional Italian food, well cooked and nicely presented. Service was friendly and fast. Prices are reasonable.

We should have known from the moment we walked in to turn right back around however it was the only restaurant open in Vernazza that evening and we were starving. The waiter was awful! I can't begin to describe how unbelievably rude he was to everyone in the restaurant, his extremely negative attitude, and impatience. My boyfriends steak came out... More

After walking all over Vernazza, we chose this restaurant for lunch. Good choice! The pasta was very tasty! I had the seafood pasta and it was one of the best seafood pasta I've ever had. My wife had a pasta with squid and fennel and it was also very delicious. I can just imagine this restaurant during the peak season... More
