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.

No reason at all to eat here - even the view was missing if you don't have a reservation - and with such poor service and food and a high price...

After I hike we went Ristorante Cecio for lunch. We had the fish anti-pesto (excellent) and pasta with pesto sauce which was very good. The restaurant is off to the side of the town providing an unobstructed view of the town and sea. The service was very good and a great overall experience.

Indeed the cliff walk from Vernazza and a nip down to the sea in Corniglia opens the appetite.
The views are nice and the breeze blowing off the sea was refreshing.
The highlight of my lunch was the fish ravioli which was just great. My daughters enjoyed pasta with pesto and tomato sauce respectively, and the half bottle of local white accompanied it all very nicely.
No issues with salt here
Worth a visit
