“Good lunch here, terrible service (did not stay @ hotel)”
Reviewed 17 September 2012

Stopped for lunch here on our way from town to town. Our hotel in Monterosso had recommended this place. We had some trouble finding it, but when we did the location was beautiful as promised. The outdoor terrace was landscaped with flowers and trees and there was an amazing water view. The food was also very good. We tried the pesto lasagne, fried anchovies, and the spaghetti de Posada and all were delicious. The salads were good, too. Our complaint was with the service--it was terrible. I am assuming our waiter was the owner or manager because he clearly had an attitude that service was beneath him. It was a shame, because it turned what could have been an delicious lunch in a gorgeous location into something much less.

We stayed in one bedroom apartment with three ppl... Was very modern, clean and good air conditioning (came in very handy)... The apartment is a bit of a walk away from Hotel reception... Which is good to be aware of, after you've made it from train station. No wifi was a little inconvenient but it's all as advertised. Don't try leaving super early on a Sunday, as the train doesn't run early. Public holiday incl Sunday!

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment in Corniglia which is the middle of the Cinque Terre villages. The apartment was fantastic with amazing views, large double bedrooms, large living room, modern bathroom and adequate kitchen. It was only a 5 minute walk to the centre of the village which is the least "touristy" of the villages. It was an easy walk to the steps leading down to the train station which takes you to the other villages. Car parking is about 400 meters away but you don't need the car if you stay for a few days. Make sure you go to the ristorante to check in and bang loudly on the gate.

Room Tip: Ring ahead to let them know you're coming. They don't always answer the phone. Ask for an...

I booked La Posada three months in advance, confirmed by e-mail as well as a telephone call three days prior to arriving. After hiking the stairs to Corniglia, we four travellers arrived at La Posada. Padlocked gate. No one was there. After twenty minutes a woman arrived. She could not telephone the proprietor. I speak Italian, and she was clueless and did not seem to care. We stayed another twenty minutes and left my telephone number. No one called back. It looked like a ghost motel. We found another place to stay after hiking to Vernazza. As another traveller cautioned, "AVOID AT ALL COSTS!"

After initial check in at this "hostel" we did not see the staff again. We had to carry our bags up 2 flights of stairs (no lift), no soap in the room, no phone, no way of contacting staff, and no contact information was provided anyway, saggy mattress that forced you to roll into the center of the bed, a dirty balcony with a dirty table and 2 dirty chairs. Room so tiny that if you took more than one step one side of the bed you hit the wall and the other side you were on the balcony. The only positive thing that I can say about this establishment is that the rooms and sheets on the bed were clean but isn't that expected in an accommodation of this type.

The owners of La Posada were wonderful hosts. Our room was a huge 2 bedroom apartment with million dollar views over the Mediterranean to Manarolo. The furnishings were simple but comfortable and the village is a 2 minute walk away. They provided a simple but delicious breakfast of coffee and focaccia.

We found the food in the restaurant to be excellent and fresh. We especially loved the Cabrese and pasta dishes.

When we decided to stay a second night and our hosts had no available rooms they found another room for us in the town. La Posada also let us go back and leave our bags in their house on our last day whereas the second place we stayed said they had no place we could leave them.

Overall we loved our stay in Cinque Terre largely due to the hospitality of the owners of La Posada.

We ate at the La Posada restaurant for lunch after hiking three hours on the challenging and incredibly scenic #6 trail from Manarola to Corniglia (where La Posada is located). We’d planned on eating lunch at the next village, Vernazza, but when we passed La Posada when the trail hit the village, the shady setting and fantastic view beckoned us. Under La Posada's palm and olive trees we enjoyed our best meal in Cinque Terre which consisted of pesto lasagna, batter-fried anchovies, caprice salad, fig and pecan tart with light crisp wine. This was a long, delicious and memorable lunch for our family. The prices were very reasonable and the service was attentive. Afterwards we headed to the village where we had intended eat- it was crowded and touristy and we fled quickly- so grateful that we came across La Posada and went off the beaten path.
