The restaurant has a remarkable array of fresh fish much of it displayed over ice. There also is a large selection of appetizers to choose from. In addition, I had a very good pasta.

Last dinner in Cinque Terra made reservation for this restaurant which you need to do if you want to sit outside. I had gnocchi which I have often and was not the best. But that is my opinion. If you plan to eat outside the...More
