The Lunch Box was the absolute perfect stop after our hike from Monterosso to Vernazza. The man taking our to-go order was so friendly and polite. The paninis were delicious - don't be afraid to customize your own! We wish we had time to lunch...there twice.More

Friendly staff and a nice location. Food was reasonable, but in choosing the daily pasta dishes we didn't feel like we got great value for money. I guess things may be a bit more pricey in Cinque Terre compared to other places we visited, so...relative to other options in town it may still be a good choiceMore

Went here for dinner on my first night: canneloni with spinach and ricotta. That was very good! So on the day that I left, I stopped here for breakfast: yoghurt with muesli and a fresh juice. Affordable and good food!

Over priced and grumpy staff. Food was decent, coffee ok and fresh orange juice was more water then orange.

Very good selection of food. Delicious! Also, in Cinque Terre is quite hard to find open restaurants all the time. Lunch Box is perfect as they re open and you can choose your own combination of food, they also serve breakfast until 12 or so....Have “create your own” for juices and all the fruits are available. Perfect place to be and the stuff is helpful and joyful! Totally recommend.More

It's a great place to eat! The food was amazing and the attention was great! They offer delicious fresh juices you can choose for yourself and everything looks and tastes incredible.

We had breakfast three times at the Lunch Box. Everytime the service was great and the food was outstanding. Twice Cythia waited on us and she was charming and gracious.

We ate here 3 times during our stay and we’re impressed with the food, coffee, and friendly staff each time. Best spot in Cinque terre to grab a quick bite or sip.

Hi, they're open from breakfast till dinner time. However, during the winter season they might close earlier, especially when there is a weather alert. Ciao!

You can ask, but I don't think they have many sweets. Try Il Pirata. They specialize in pastries. The owner was very nice and may have some good suggestions. Lunch box is closer to a jamba juice in USA. Good luck!!!
