There seem to be two restaurants by this name. The lower one sounds like it isn't very good. The tiny one on top of the cliff was some of the most delightful and sophisticated yet local food we have ever eaten, and the location overlooking the sea is unbeatable. The kitchen is tiny, the chef is very inventive and skilled and only serves a few dishes so that he can make them all well. The service was lovely with a wine tasting menu and wines that were well selected. We had delicate and tasty squid salad with wild mushrooms and arugula that belonged in an Alice Waters restaurant, a sausage out of its casing appetizer with some carmelized shallots and a soft cheesy bite to balance it. Marvelous local lamb, a sea bass on fig leaves that was the best seafood we had in cinque Terre, and pear and mascarpone in wine that was amazing. All the tastes were subtle and unique but at the same time traditional. And the view is incredibly romantic and peaceful, which is hard to find in Riomaggiore. We liked it so much we ate there twice.
