We stopped here for lunch and had the house white wine, grilled veggies, and pasta with lobster. The pasta was the star. Service was okay; we had better experiences elsewhere in Vernazza. The patio and view made up for that though!

I stayed in Vernazza for a week with my friend and tried all the restaurants there, and we thought this restaurant was the best of them all. We had dinner there twice. Really good service, and their carbonara style seafood pasta was just delicious.

Lovely dinner in this restaurant, located in the main square overlooking the village bay. Service was fast but attentive. Food was really good. I really recommend this restaurant, but booking is essential as it gets incredibly busy.
