I felt like we were in a romantic movie, with a table on the terrace at sunset overlooking gorgeous sea views and feasting on perfect homemade pasta tossed in pesto and fresh fish that must have just been caught that day drizzled with a balsamic glaze and served with tender roasted potatoes. I had started with the fresh anchovies marinated in lemon which are nothing like the anchovies in a can we are familiar with. These were so flavorful, lemony and not fishy at all. To finish the meal I ordered the white chocolate lemon tart which was so good the really sweet waiter who had made it wrote out the recipe for me. How nice it that? To top it off they brought us complimentary lemoncello, grappa, and another local drink. A dream like evening that I will remember for a long time.

If you are only going to eat in one place in Italy, this is the one! We had dinner at Billys three nights in the same week and must say that everything we had was absolutely delicious. All dishes are prepared from fresh, local ingredients and served to us with love and pride.

Arrivederci

Words can't describe this place. Make sure you booked in advance and request outdoor seating. The food and wine was wonderful, we had the 12 appetiser dishes (starter) and it was marvellous, lobster noodles and the reccommended fish of the day. Eating this while watching the sunset was the most amazing experience. To top it off it was cheap as well!

The place is one of the rare who are not on the main street in the village center, but it's build in terraces on the hill side which gives it not only an incredible view on the sea and the sunset but also a more authentic atmosphere than the other more tourist restaurants in Manarola. Donna Laura is an excellent host with a lot of humour speaking many languages good enough to make your mouth water of the house specialties, mainly the pasta with seafood and the oven baked fish. It simple but so fresh and tasty. And the dinner ends with a grappa (and other local alcohol) tasting session that they offer graciously, which is by no means the rule in the other establishments around. Because of all this fame, it's very much recommended to reserve a table, even if the restaurant is still very casual.
