An absolutely gorgeous largely outdoor restaurant with a spectacular view out over the Ligurian Sea and doen the coast to the next Cinque Terre town, Manorolo. The garden setting of the tables is beautiful, with trees and flowers all around.

The food is every bit as good as the view: typical Ligurian seafood and fish dishes are the stars. Especially recommended is the hot seafood appetizer - last night's consisted of seven different dishes, including mussels, stuffed large calamari, octopus, etc., and was just divine - beautifully prepared and served and absolutely delicious. Pasta dishes are great - we had a pesto lasagna and a fresh pasta of very large tubes in a fresh tomato/basil sauce. Sadly, we had no room for a
secondi course, but we did finish up with some delicious Sciachettra, the local dessert wine which can be found no where other tha Cinque Terra. Service was very attentive. A local white wine with dinner was excellent. A great meal

During the girlie weekend, we have stayed at Corniglia and decided to have our dinner and then lunch the following day at La Posada. We are demanding crowd as out of 10 of us, there were 9 different nationalities (with diverse tastes and habits). Most of us have been living in Italy therefore we do not accept anything less than scrumptious italian food at its best.

La Posada has met our highest standards with wonderful feast. We had variety of appetisers, mainly fish such as octopus, anchovies and frutti di mare mixed with spinach, courgette and chick peas. We were served at least 7 different versions of fish with different veg combination. All delicious. And it was just the starter... Main dishes followed of pastas and grilled fish. The restaurant offered gluten free dishes too for celiac guest.

The restaurant has beautiful terrace with plenty of space. Gorgeous views and super friendly staff. Thank you Christiane for welcoming us and making the evening and the following afternoon unforgettable.

The final bill was also very reasonable.

After a big hike up over from Manarola to Volastra to Corniglia, it was delightful to find this restaurant adjacent to the famous 1,000 steps to the train station.

Sitting outside, enjoying a good breeze and gazing out over the sea is always a winning way to dine in our book.

The server was very nice and helpful with our limited Italian and his limited English. The pasta was what we have come to expect in Italy: delicious, light, with a sauce that you wanted to savor for, oh a couple of hours.

We had an antipasto dish of smoked tuna--something we never tried before. It was paper thin and very delectable. Don't miss trying it!

We always stick with the house wine and it did not fail to taste great.

Note: Cash only!

Very friendly staff, multilingual, very accommodating to our 4 & 6 year old children, which is a big plus for us!! Except it was predominately sea food (not our favorite) but still good. Cash only, as in most all small towns in Italy. All in all very nice atmosphere and reasonably priced for the highly touristy area!!

Thank you Cristian and team for a wonderful experience! Trying local specialties, enjoying the view and getting help to our destination made us come back the second time. When in Corniglia, this is the place to eat and hang out!
