I really don't understand many of the reviews on Tripadvisor. This restaurant is awful. The waitress ignored us adn was very angry the hole time. We order the day special, a salmon gnocchi... "madonna mia" it was terrible. It looked and tasted like canned salmon. In fact it had no taste at all. It was not that cheap either. We... More

We ate at Aristide several times during our Cinque Terre visit. It was close to our Manarola inn and convenient to the train station. After a tiring and hunger generating day exploring the many trails and paths offered by Cinque Terre this was a great spot to relax. The food was excellent and they served delicious Italian meals almost like... More

My wife and I had dinner here last night. The sea food was fantastic. The calamari was some of the best we've ever had anywhere in the world. You're definitely going back for more.

I had a very good dinner in their outdoor area, which is on a main square in Manarola. The pasta and sauce, a seafood and tomato sauce, was very good, and the house white wine was good and cheap. Service was generally friendly and fast, but at no time did I feel rushed. I did not have a reservation, which... More

We had a wonderful dinner here tonight. The service was outstanding.. 3 excellent, friendly and very diligent waiters who attended to us regularly. The food was fresh and delicious. We have eaten at a number of others places in Manarola, and this was by far the best!

Avoid, especially if you are foreign, i.e not Italian. Rude, inconsistent and disrespectful service. Asked for a cappuccino and watched the woman so called "barista" throw some coffee into the machine and dollop some cold milk on top, the result was a cold tasteless beverage which would have tasted better if I'd mixed the hotel ready freeze dried coffee pouches...

We ate brunch at Aristide before leaving Manarola (so sad!) on the train. We were quite happy with our food and service. The server was very busy and did not speak very fluent English. She seemed appreciative that we asked for the menus and ordered our food in Italian. She was prompt and friendly. We enjoyed cappuccinos at Aristide, and... More

Worst place I've eaten in Italy so far. I would say that food was even average, but service in this place must be a joke. Waiters are rude, disrespectful (especially for foreigners) and they don't really care if you're there or not. They also forgot about one order and one of us had to wait very long time. Of course...

Good restaurant: Food was quite good with fresh ingredients (had the trofie mit pesto and the octopus with potato cream), although I have seen better versions of those dishes during my travels; service was friendly and extremely efficient; you won't have the same stunning views that other restaurants have, but the food is worth it; prices were quite reasonable; recommended!
