The wait staff seemed annoyed that we showed up asking for dinner at 9:30. I understand if that's too late to seat us, but once they did they should provide decent service. We sat for at least 10-15 minutes before receiving any introduction from the waitress. Once we finally ordered our entree came in a reasonable time but the waitress remained less than friendly. Then when we ordered dessert we waited another 30 minutes for one pastrie. I wouldn't come back here...and actually thought about getting up and leaving a couple of times while here. I'm using their free WiFi to write this review from the table so I don't forget.

The place is absolutely stunning! Great view, great staff an delicious food. If you know how to enjoy your life you have to visit this place. We've had spent in Cibque Terre more than a week and we had been back three thee times to this restaurant. Everytime it was perfect

We had drinks at the lower bar a couple of times during our stay. Loved that it was self service and the prices were reasonable considering the location and the great views. Tip - great place to wait for your train.

Excellent pasta dishes, the pork sausage dish was not too great. The views are breathtakingly amazing and is great for a night of relaxation and good wine!

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.
