This is a difficult restaurant to review only because each time we went there the service and food got better and better. In our 5 night stay in Corniglia, we ate at Cecio 3 times. There aren't many restaurants to choose from in Corniglia and if you don't have a reservation it can really narrow things down. However, it does appear that there maybe two types of service, one for the locals that frequent there and another of less quality and higher prices for the tourists that maybe passing thru for that one day. The first night we went there was at the recommendation of a local who's apartment we were staying in. The food was okay, the service average at best and I thought the bill was rather high for what we ate and a bottle of wine. The second night the food seemed better or maybe we made a better choice and stayed away from the expensive fish dishes. The service also seemed better. By the third night they remembered us and treated us like they would a local and that was a well worth treat. The final bill was significantly lower than the first 2 nights and we got excellent service. A dessert and after dinner drink on the house! Maybe this restaurant isn't always perfect but neither are some of the arrogant tourists that pass thru it everyday.
