Our night in the cantina was the perfect ending for our tour around the Cinque Terre. We were very well welcomed by the friendly staff, the ambience of the place matches perfectly the picturesque air of the villages. The food was very good, had a lasagna with the local wine, price was good also. A very talented trio formed by... More

My husband and I stumbled on this great little spot after exploring a good bit of Manarola and wanting to enjoy some drinks and snacks before dinner. LOVED IT. The owner and his staff are wonderful, patient, kind and friendly, and helped us choose just the right wine. Also, they have delicious focaccia and olives to snack on! Later in... More

A wonderful find on the main drag towards the beach. Not much to look at from the outside but full of atmosphere inside. Small and cosy on a busy day it was a bit full-on. Pleasant and attentive staff providing excellent food from a small space. A good place to. drink wine and probably an even better place in the... More

What started out as a quiet dinner, ended up with some really good entertainment. I wasn't expecting it, but as I was finishing my pasta with pesto, the guy started on the guitar, and he was really good. I ended up staying a few more hours, and the place was rocking. Since it was a Wednesday night, I have no... More

We went on a wine tasting here. For 15 euros per person, we had samples of several wines along with snacks. Gabriel, the owner, talked about the wine and the history of his place, which was started by his grandfather in 1958. We went back twice to listen to music in the evening and to drink red wine.

Was in Manarola for a week on vacation. We dined at Il Porticciolo next door and the waiter told us about this place and that there would be live entertainment. So we did come to Zio Bramante to see the show. What a charming place. Small and inviting. We took seats close to the stage and saw two different performances.... More

Tried to pay with a €50 note (as that's all I had), he put it in the till but said he didn't have change. I offered to pay on my credit card if it was easier. He took my card and payed with that, but didn't return my €50. When I asked for it back he pretended not to know... More

We stopped here for a last glass of wine on our way back to our accommodation as it seemed like the only place open late. We were drawn in by the music and the people outside. The very friendly lady served up and chatted to us - a shame there was no local red wine available, but was still a... More
