“Great value, great food, great service”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

After backpacking through Italy on a budget my wife and I were so glad to come upon this place. Very good, homemade pasta that you can take away and eat on a bench outside while enjoying the beautiful scenery. The food was much better (and less expensive) than many of the touristy sit down restaurants we tried. The owner was very friendly and gave us great recommendations. Would highly recommend this place.

“Nice Little Lunch Counter Place (With Gluten Free Options)”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

We were wandering in Manarola and got hungry for something like that we could take away and came upon Il Discovolo. The gentleman at the counter was very friendly and welcoming. What caught our eye was his sign on the display case that several items were Gluten Free. After some brief discussion with him, we choose our selections and he said it would be about 5-10 mins to heat up the food. He even had some Gluten Free beer as well. Once ready we utilized some benches he has outside the place. The food wasn't bad. I'd say it was average food, but still good. I would recommend as a quick take away lunch place if you are looking for something on the go.

“Perfect for a quick lunch”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

This little pizza joint is just perfect for grabbing a quick snack or lunch. Its a small place but worth finding. The owner is very friendly and offers a warm welcome to all, he also speaks very good English. A wide selection of fresh, home-made pizza, and topped focaccia is on offer and all are very tasty and very reasonably priced. We loved it.
