We had an absolutely lovely lunch at Belforte. Our seafood was very good and the views of the Mediterranean and of the town were fantastic. Andre our waiter made the experience memorable! I highly recommend it when visiting Cinque Terra.

I was in the Belforte while traveling through the Cinque Terre. Seafood was very fresh and well prepared. I ate octopus salad and pasta with pesto. For dessert I hadcaramelized strawberries that are to die for.

Do not miss the restaurant in Vernazza when you visit Cinque Terre. A magnificent view from the tower. The best food in Cinque Terre. Mrs Michela makes you feel like you are in heaven. All staff are great.
