Great location, outside people watching while sipping on wine... popular restaurant but excellent wait staff despite how busy, and the food was excellent... highly recommend this restaurant after a long hike from Monterosso! Great way to recover!

Average dish of Fillet of John Dory but was drowned in a tasteless tomato sauce, good location on the sea front and good service.

We were in Vernazza for 3 days and we ate twice at Gambero Rosso. Really recommend the seafood platter and the octopus, it was delicious. Also very nice wine. Really enjoyed the design of the restaurant, the cliff is a nice and unique feature.

I'm not sure why everyone is reviewing the food as excellent. We had a large group and no one raved about their meal... the food was just average and the prices are high. It's a good location and friendly staff.
