Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We found this place while touring cinque terre. It is absolutely amazing. It is small so you might have to wait but it is worth the wait. Food is absolutely delicious, we had sea food pasta and pesto pasta, both the best flavors I’ve ever...had! Staff was super friendly and we had an overall amazing time.More

This was one of our favorite stops in the Cinque Terre. It was so good, we went back a second time! The seafood was so fresh and just melted in your mouth.

Delightful seafood lunch. A busy little place, packed full of flavourful dishes. We had the clam pasta and also the anchovy / potato dishes. We also ordered the full bbq lobster and finished with cheesecake and tiramisu. Each dish was a pleasure, each cooked perfectly...for us. Sincere thanks to the manager and chef, a busy team that helped make a lovely memory of our trip to Cinque Terre.More

This tiny place was great fun, and served good, fresh seafood. In tourist hotspots it is often difficult to find good food, but the standards here are high, and the simple food is fairly priced for the location.

Greetings from Chicago!! Wife and I had a wonderful lunch at this charming little restaurant, and the price is very reasonable! We loved the pleasant young lady had the sweetest smile during the entirety of our meal. After our meal, they even gave us a...free sample of pesto lasagna which I wake up in middle of night in tears thinking about it. Thank you again~More

Virginia is simply the best! The chef is very good to, Mario. We ordered the pasta with lobster and a lasagna with salmon, and the two dishes were absolutely perfect. To finish: a local sweet wine with an italian biscuit, which were very good too....The fish is fresh (shown at the restaurant), directly from the docs. The space is very very limited (so we suggest you to go early), however you can opt for the take away option. Absolutely amazing!!More

The food and fresh seafood here is delicious (great sandwiches) but have never experienced ruder service anywhere, ever. One chef and one waitress/manager so granted it was busy, but she had massive attitude. If it’s service with a smile you want, don’t go. A shame...because it’s a tiny and authentic space. Better off getting takeaway.More

We had an incredible seafood pasta and a taglioni nero with scallops. Both excellent. This is a great lunch place, definitely check it out if you're in Cinque Terre.

High prices, small serves. Given where we are I guess that it’s to be expected that things will be expensive. Our meals were tasty but not big in volume. In Australia, we would not eat the lobsters we were served here because they were so...under sized and we would have had to have thrown them back due to their size. Thankfully we had a starter which helped fill us up but the 30 euro main course was tiny. It’s a very small restaurant, catering for only 5 tables at a time so make sure you book or you’ll have to wait.More

Amazing seafood. We had scallops, oysters, mixed seafood grill with an extra lobster, pesto pasta, finished with tiramisu. Each dish was exquisite, beautifully fresh seafood. We will be back tonight too! Tiny restaurant, space for 10 people only. No reservations, you have to queue.

The restaurant is quaint and charming. The food is fresh and the pasta is unlike anything my fiance and I have ever had. The spaghetti with lobster was incredible and the chef is so sweet. Our server (she's really runs the front of house) was...funny and recommended a great local white wine. We finished off with a homemade pie. I don't normally leave reviews, but I wish we could dine here weekly. Can't wait to go back.More

What a find. Not many places to sit but we were welcomed and found a table. So friendly and helpful. Fresh fish and seafood counter, you can have cooked anyway you like. Such a choice. Great local wine. We had crab pasta, seafood pasta and...the best fritto misto. Will be back as staying a few days.More
