Worst food during our 18-day Italy trip. Complete tourist trap. Glass dirty. Seafood obviously frozen and reheated. Service so rude you know they don't care. No wonder there's hardly any Italian eating here. This place ruined our Vernazza experience. Avoid at all cost.

Lovely Location with an outdoor table. I had the eggplant Parmesan which was incredible and my husband had The Stuffed mussels which he raved about. Service was friendly and efficient so I have no complaints and would definitely go back. Important to make a booking...More

Located in the main piazza of Vernazza lies this restaurant, which serves great pasta and seafood bonus points for providing shade with their umbrellas in the summer. The only downside of this restaurant and why I wouldn't give them 5 stars is for their service...More

i can't believe how disrespectful we treated. we were polite and dressed nicely and our money was cash and yet we were treated like second class citizens. Italians should be ashamed of this kind of service!!!! good was great waiters were beyond insulting.

The five of us went for lunch to this restaurant which is located in a great place in the piazza from where you can see the sea. We had to wait 30 minutes for a table as this is a popular restaurant and serves lunch...More

Located near the sea in a big square, we prefered a table outside for dinning. Great seafood mix and the prices are reasonable.

The restaurant sits in the square overlooking the sea in Vernazza. This is the only positive point. The service was off-hand and dis-interested. The pasta dishes we had were both unattractive and virtually tasteless.

Fantastic location on this resturang but the food was really bad. If I had bought a jar of baby food (spaghetti bolognese) I would have been much more pleased with the taste experience. However, the locally produced beer was good. And the service was okej.

The worst experience I had at a restaurant in Italy. The staff was very rude. Our waiter was very combative too. I tried in a nice manner to explain to him that our grilled seafood was not good. I asked if we could get another...More

Beautiful location! Attentive service. I am giving this a not so great review because my eggplant Parmesan was cold in the middle. This means it was not made fresh and was refrigerated. The eggplant was not properly heated for serving. Pesto pasta was good. Pasta...More

I believe, for my wife and I, it was approximately 50-60 euros without any wine. One appetizer, two main courses, two desserts and water. We spent a week in Italy and this restaurant fed us our best food.
