Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We enjoyed a fantastic lunch in this very authentic looking restaurant. We had the burrata & anchovies starter, the seafood pasta and the tiramisu. Everything tasted amazing and the waitress was very friendly.

Fantastic dinner experience! I'm so glad we made reservations ahead of time to enjoy this dinner while in Corniglia. The cheese and meat board appetizer was an amazing tasting of everything. The pasta course was also yummy. To top if off, I ordered the fish...of the day which was tuna. I was iffy at first, but it was absolutely divine! Dessert was fantastic. Great service and quality food.More

An absolutely amazing restaurant. I’m a foodie from San Francisco so I am very picky. The fish so fresh and filled with herbs and flavor. The rabbit jumped with pleasure. The 60 Euro Prosecco was better than any $300 bottle of Dom. You have to...make reservations for one of the sittings. This is not a tourist trap food place. Now, one of my favorite places in Italy, and I’ve been to hundreds.More

Cozy little place (may want to make a reservation in tourist season) with tasty food. Can pair your choice of pasta with your choice of sauce. I had the ravioli con salsa di noci and loved it.

We were excited to be among the selected few who had made a reservation and were able to grab a seat at 7pm, but were disappointed from there on out. Although we knew that we were limited to the designated seating time 7pm-9pm we were...not expecting to be so rushed for dinner as we were. It was super understaffed in service resulting in little to no personal attention. Whilst we were eating our second course our neighboring table had yet to order. It felt like a highly overpriced experience. We were wined and dined and out within 1,5 hours and left feeling super unsatisfied. The food was fine (nothing to write home about) and the service was mediocre …not at all what we hoped for.More

This place is a real legend in the area, everyone is delighted with it, so we decided to check what the fuss is about. And I must admit that although it was tasty, I expected a bit more. Especially the seafood paste left a little...dissatisfaction because although delicious it was quite poor for the price. Although their variation on the caprese salad was a hit.More

Too many hypocrite reviews for just a good place at a very nice town. Very unfriendly staff and even worst the owner. Not worthy. We were really excited and the food was good but not unforgettable. Normal. Don’t get disappointed if you don’t get a...reservation. Watch the sunset and look for another place. Honestly, don’t deserve your time. I was here in Sept 17th 2022 with 5 other persons.More

Great dinner and apps. My pasta was excellent and the sardines appetizer was eye opening. What I really loved was the service and how small the place was. There are maybe 10 tables in the whole place.

We booked this place through a local contact. We arrived 12 minutes early and were told brusquely to come back at 9pm. This is entirely exceptional behaviour on the Cinque Terre. The staff were sitting around in an otherwise completely empty restaurant having drinks. We...explained that it is my Mom’s 80th birthday. Go away and come back in 12 minutes. We returned at 9pm. There were 10 other people waiting outside. The staff were standing at the bar having drinks, busy on their phones and staring at the waiting guests. Three times one of them would walk over to the door and shift the chair right in front of the doorway, then turn back to the bar without acknowledging their waiting guests. About 21:10 they let folks in and showed my Mom to the seat directly in the doorway. We asked to please be seated elsewhere and were told she could sit there or leave. So we did. This food might be good, awesome even. We didn’t find out. Because their attitude to guests is begrudging and unkind. I see there are other reviews over the years about this poor attitude to guests - while some have liked the service. So it seems to be consistently inconsistent. Poor leadership maybe? I guess you can take your chance on your own special evening out but I wouldn’t recommend it. This is such a beautiful little village and you deserve to have confidence that your evening out will be happy. They may know about food but they know nothing about hospitality. We went next door to a place run by a grandpa at the bar, grandson on the tables and granny in the kitchen. Superb traditional dishes served with great hospitality. See our separate review.More

Really great little find. We really enjoyed the platter of different types of anchovies accompanied with other seafood, quite delicious, as well as a daily fish special in a wonderfully flavorful sauce with herbs, olives and tomatoes. The atmosphere in the building is quite charming...with its arched stone. Hint: Arrive around 15 minutes before they open for lunch to get a table as it is small and they wouldn’t seat many others after those first seated finished. I think if it’s within 45 minutes to the end of their lunch hours they would rather leave tables empty. So they basically only have one seating at lunch, and the place is very small.More

This was the best food experience in all of Cinque Terre. The charming feeling of the restaurant, the attention to local produce made by an excellent chef really sold the experience. The food and wine was also very affordable, and we had two great pasta...dishes sprinkled with the local flavour of pesto and ragú. If you come here you should definitely try the ‘testaroli’ pasta.More

For dinner, we had a bottle of Corniglia wine, the seafood antipasto, the seafood pasta, and the “Fish of the day” which was grilled octopus caught that day, and for dessert a ricotta mousse with lemon syrup. The waiter “invited” us to have a shot...of grappa at the end of dinner. Delightful! All of our waiter’s recommendations were fantastic. It’s a small restaurant so you must make a reservation. Highly recommend!More

We reserved a table at 9pm. After receiving our table at around 9:15pm we had to wait for around 1 hour to even receive our apetizers. At that time, our neighbours that arrived at the same time had already finished dessert. The waiter tried his...best but was alone. Also we noted that the chef was treating the waiter very rudely. This added to the bad experience we had. The food was decent but nothing compared to the other restaurant we visited close by, called Cecio (amazing food, nice terrasse and no rude chef).More
