I had the mussels stew, and a seafood platter. Seafood platter was served in 3 big plates. Staff was nice enough to warn us not to over order. Overall the seafood was definitely a good choice.

We had lunch here during our stop in Riomaggiore. The anchovy pizza was the best we’ve ever had. The spaghetti with seafood was also excellent. A very pleasant meal in the middle of Cinque Terre. You have got to give it a try.

La Grotta was recommended by our travel agent, and the food, service, and ambiance did not disappoint. Run, don't walk, if you want superb pasta, pesto and creme caramel!

We had no expectations going in and had picked it based on location and availability of outdoor seating. Two hours later, we had had a stellar meal, a very attentive server and a great time. Really pleasant experience.
