Not only was the food amazing but the service was too. The guy who took care of us I think he owns it, was super friendly and talkative. I definitely recommend this place.

A must visit while in Vernazza. We had an excellent dinner here and grabbed breakfast twice while staying in Vernazza. The staff were warm and friendly and the pastries were the best I had in Italy.

Stop by earlier in the day if you can to make a reservation. It’s very informal but the food is delicious :)

I did see signs there about rooms as well, but that is all I know about. We booked a room at larosadeiventi right across the street. It was spotless and spacious. Have a great trip!

As you get off the train and go down the stairs, there is a street to the right . The cafe is still on the top of the hill. If you go straight down the hill on the main street of Vernazza, you'll miss it.
