When you first arrive in Manarola, or any of the five Cinque Terra towns, throw your bags into your hotel room and Run to Trattoria dal Billy, at the top of the old town past the church piaza and up the stairs aging the stone wall. Follow your nose to this gem of a restaurant. Make your 7:00 or 9:00... More

Expected more of a tourist trap. The off-menu special appetizer of 12 small-plate fish dishes was excellent. The 12 different dishes were fairly simple and straight-forward, but also supremely fresh and delicious. Raw shrimp over potato puree, lemon anchovies, and the ravioli were stand-outs. The red pasta with lobster was fine. Good pasta, but not as stunning as the noodles... More

We ordered 12 different seafood antipasti and were delighted with the variety, textures, and tastes. The meal that followed, red pasta with crab and grilled bream, were equally delicious. Grilled vegetables were also beautifully prepared. Impressed with the food, the service, the setting.

We went there, hankering for seafood, because of all the favourable reviews we had read and it's in a lovely spot. The food is good but not great. One person in our party had the pasta with mixed seafood and loved it. The rest we thought was OK. The fried squid and anchovies were overcooked. My general impression is that... More

Absolute must go for dinner. Our whole party ordered the mixed seafood antipasto and it was everything I wanted from Cinque Terra as far as seafood. Wine was a reasonable price and the restaurant had a fun atmosphere. Wait staff were funny and nice. I will definitely go back there next time we visit.

we had local specialities and enjoyed them all, with some good recommendations from the staff. Easy to see why it remains very busy, worth finding a way of making it...

Great food, friendly staff and a lovely view give this place a great start. Staff could be more attentive and consistent in their enthusiasm. And the place just lacks the buzz that comes from clients who really want to be there.
