After 35 days in Europe this by far was our best meal. I reserved a table at the top level with a sea view 3 months in advance. We were not disappointed. We had the best wine ever. We had the warm seafood salad for...More

This restaurant was the dining highlight of our (my son and self) 1 week stay in the CINQUE TERRE region. VERNAZZA is arguably the most picturesque of the 5 towns and BELFORTE certainly among the best of the VERNAZZA restaurants. MAGNIFICENT views complement excellent service...More

I knew that this was the one restaurant I really wanted to go to, so made reservations ahead of time. I did get an email back that we had the reservation, but the night we went (our last in Vernazza), they didn't have it. It...More

We did not make reservation and got the last table available (not with the greatest view) but the experience was any less satisfactory - we probably had the best seafood dinning with the price we paid, in Italy! Would absolutely go back there again!! The...More

If you want to eat at Belforte make sure you have a reservation as it’s very popular. Not knowing this we popped in to try and get a seat for dinner and the “husband” was extremely rude. We were advised by another patron that the...More

Highly recommend reservations, especially for a "view table", though most seats have a great view. Service was slow, but professional. Food-I had a local fish. It was pretty bland. My wife had a different type of fish, forgot the name, sorry. It was better. Dessert...More

This place is wonderful - perfect combination of great view and delicious food. I had pasta with shrimps and zucchini, and it was brilliant! For 2 people we paid 70 EUR (2 main courses, a bottle of wine, one dessert and coffee) - very reasonable...More
