The Ristorante Belforte is an amazing place. It has one small room inside an medieval-type stone tower, and 3 or 4 terraces around the tower and between the rocks, all looking onto the sea and/or the village. The coolest and most breathtaking spot in Vernazza....More

Went for dinner with my husband on a windy October night, we opted to sit inside and so the atmosphere did not overshadow our review of the food. It was good and still better than the states, but after eating at some great restaurants in...More
