We had dinner here. The location is lovely with great views of the water. The two pasta dishes we ordered were mediocre and the service left much to be desired. We would not return.

If you can bear the wait time and poor service, this restaurant serves great dishes with the most fabulous view over the sea. The ferry stops just a few metres away, so hopping off for lunch, or dinner when visiting the Cinque Terre is perfect....More

This is a great place to get the local food and wine. The staff was nice and it wasn't too busy in March. I imagine it gets busy in the high season. It's located down near the water but no view.
