We came here to eat breakfast and were not disappointed! It is a short (3-5 min) walk from the station, in the opposite direction of the city centre. It is located in a quiet street and has a nice terras. The owner suggested we should...More

Probably one of the best meals we had in Italy - if not the best! My Sicilian tuna pasta was absolutely delicious and to finish it all, we had to try their panna cotta, a specialty of the house. It's a deconstructed version of the...More

Our family ate breakfast at Il Pirata twice during our stay in Vernazza. Chatting with Massimo - who is extremely warm, personable, and hilarious - was a real highlight! The pastries and quiches are delicious and we loved the quiet location away from the busier...More

Stayed for several days in Vernazza cinque terra. TripAdvisor reviews recommended this restaurant and it didn’t disappoint. We did 3 orders off the antipasti menu and they were all delicious. Beautiful city. Restaurant is out of tourist area with quite atmosphere.

The owners Massimo and Luca live and breath this restaurant and you can really tell in the food. Some of the restaurants in Vernazza are very touristy and the food is not good because people are there for the view, but here they care so...More

Best meal in Cinque Terre. A bit away from the buzy harbour. Had sallad, pasta and a super bruschetta! Personal service, they adjusted the antipasti as we requested.

Stop by earlier in the day if you can to make a reservation. It’s very informal but the food is delicious :)

I did see signs there about rooms as well, but that is all I know about. We booked a room at larosadeiventi right across the street. It was spotless and spacious. Have a great trip!

As you get off the train and go down the stairs, there is a street to the right . The cafe is still on the top of the hill. If you go straight down the hill on the main street of Vernazza, you'll miss it.
