After a long downhill hike into town, it was time for lunch. It should have been a hint that all the other places on the harbor had a wait. Okay. The pasta with seafood was very good. Was also nice to have a green salad. But the waiter was clueless. I think he was actually a busboy pressed into serving.... More

This is one of the restaurants with tables arrayed on the piazza just above the harbor. After two weeks eating great food throughout Italy, we found the food here to be average. Not bad but not great. Service was not good. Surly might be a good description.

We had just hiked and came into Vernazza just starving. We picked this restaurant without any information. We were pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. I will say the owner was not the most accommodating. We tried to sit outside and he was rude. We did eat inside and enjoyed the food very much! Service at the... More

Only disappointment in Vernazza. My girlfriend ordered a shrimp pasta dish that had a delicious sounding description on the menu. Shockingly, the shrimp was not even peeled yet still covered in the pasta's red sauce. Thus, the entire meal was spent trying to peel the soaked shrimp that resulted in a huge mess. We would have asked the waiter if... More

Before you dismiss my review of this restaurant, look at my other reviews. This place was truly awful. Horrible rude service, terrible wine, bad bad food, and a waiter who STUNK so bad it was ridiculous. AVOID THIS PLACE AT ALL COSTS! I miss the old Vernazza.

I wasn't very hungry and wanted something light. I ordered the mixed seafood soup (clams and muscles) off the appetizer part of the menu and a side salad. I received this huge bowl of steamed muscles and clams in a tomato based broth. I was upset that I ordered the salad because I was wasting room from the seafood. It... More

We went there for breakfast and there were a few people having breakfast. We asked for a table but the owner was so rude. He didn't even want to give us a table. He didn't even want to talk to us. We just walked away stunned.

We had lunch here and enjoyed our meal. The food was very good and the service was too. We sat with a nice view of the harbor - even though it was crowded to see. The seafood was fresh - which is what is mostly on the menu. I had the spaghetti with clams was very satisfied with my meal.... More

My husband and I visited this place 3 years ago and loved it. We came back again on our most recent trip and after trying the most popular places for seafood pasta in the Cinque Terre, I can say with certainty that this place has my favorite. It is just absolutely delicious! Their pesto is also tasty as is their... More
