Read the recent reviews. The view is beautiful of the sea and the town of Riomaggiore. The service is all over the place. Took 20 minutes to get the waiter to come over to us. I know Italian service is slow and we travel not...More

So, I guess I should have read the other recent reviews more carefully before deciding to eat here. Many seem on point commenting that the service is really compromising the experience. The good: the view is nice and each of the dishes we ordered was...More

A poor exprerience overall. The service was a mess, bringing out entree and appetizers by some random process. The billing was a total mess as they clearly couldn't keep our order straight. The food was good, but not worth the aggravation.

The average service level in Cinque Terre is not good because the restaurants never worry about lacking of customers. We still found some very good restaurants the service was very efficient. However it was still the first time we experienced that during our ordering, the...More

I honestly wish I could say something positive about this place as I was truly looking forward to dining here. We arrived around 9pm and the restaurant was nearly full. We waited a few minutes for a table, no big deal. We were told to...More

Overlooks Riomaggiore. Good food, very nice staff. I would certainly eat here again. Fish dishes are very good.

A stormy night calls for a glass of bubbles and hearty food that comforts. This did not disappoint. While everything on the menu looked delicious we settled on the spaghetti with mussels. It was cooked to perfection and had a spicy kick that was unexpectedly...More

We had one brilliant dish - "noodles" which had shrimp and truffle. The other was terrible - ravioli. It was cold in the middle and lacked flavour. The service was also terrible. The atmosphere was also a little strange and only half the place had...More

Apparently the restaurant was fully booked but the waiter managed to get us a table. It took a while to order the food then we had the feeling they forgot about us. Finally we got our order, food was great the wine was nice. We...More

Type of restaurant that Gordon Ramsay visits in Hell's kitchen. Totally disorganized, despite the goodwill of the waiter. The primi was cold and sent back to kitchen. One guest had the secondi 20 minutes before the 4 others. And served before the previous plates were...More

We walked up the first night, then booked for subsequent night while at restaurant. You could ring them on 0187 920143. I don't think you can book online. Cheers.
Everyone seems to mention dinner. Would this be a good place for lunch as well?

Yes, it would be a great place for lunch! I agree with Judy D's answer.
Is this restaurant in town or outside? Is it accesible being in town or coming from the train station.

It's at the top of the town, you can easily walk there. Check on a map but basically you just walk all the way up the main street going through town and then up some steps and you're there. It's a very small town.
