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.

A very popular restaurant, it became crowded directly after it opened at 19.00. Everyone in our party (3 persons) had very good seafood here. Can recommend the mussels here.
