I really enjoyed the seafood pasta and local wine. Service was great and the restaurant is nicely decorated with rock showing on a couple of the walls. I would go again!

It was a quiet week night in April when there wasn't many other people around, when we stumbled across Il Grottino. The proprietor was lovely, very helpful with the menu, patient with our lack of Italian, and even gave us a tour of the eponymous "grottino"! The food was absolutely delicious. We would recommend anything with seafood.

We managed to get a table after queuing for a short time. The waitress was very professional and efficient. The service was very fast and food was amazing. We would strongly recommend this restaurant and would definitely return.

Had a lovely meal with many options on menu. Service a bit slow and people who came in after us got food before we did. It is in the center of the town so if you want adventure and locals, hotels are happy to give advice on hidden restaurants up the hill.

We went out for dinner and decided to go to Ghiz place. In the main drag in Riomaggiore. Easy to find. THE don't have WIFI! The menu I found was limited and the server was not very good in English, this is not a requirement when she makes efforts to understand and provide recommendations. The food was good, I found...

The restaurant is at the town centre, the price is reasonable and they have various type of pasta. I really enjoyed their spaghetti de la frutti mare or in English, seafood spaghetti. The seafood were fresh and the pasta was so delicious. Must try if you are in Riomaggiore.

The four of us ended up downstairs but it is very appealing to the eye, food was great and not too pricy.
