Arriving Vernazza late in the afternoon and hungry we stopped at this place since they had an outdoor seating in the sun with great view. We had to wait a few minutes to get a table which was ok. We ordered food and drinks when the sundown started. then it became a little windy and cold, so we moved inside.... More

Vernazza has limited handicap parking that allowed us to get real close. For those without a Disabilty pass, there is in fact, an open parking lot. Make sure you are full of gas.. the pesto lasagna was the best I have ever had.... and i live in Italy.... we sat in the sun, drank prosecco and I am about to... More

I was the only Italian in the group and honestly I wasn't too eager to try this restaurant as I thought it was going to be the typical tourist trap. My polish boyfriend and his family, on the other hand, decided to stop here as soon as they saw the pizzas coming out of the kitchen. We were welcomed by... More

Definitely choose aia Saracena for its location.....not knowing anything about food or service. The tonno and onion pizza I ordered was the best pizza of our trip so far.....I am not sure how they make their crust but it almost melts in your mouth....I am thinking part chick pea flour.....all in our part of four we're very pleased with their...

Why a 5?....to a pizzeria? Because I liked the pizza, the bread was special, crispy and light and the taste was good. The service was very nice and friendly, made us feel welcome The place outside is amazing, just on the docks. Inside cozy, very typical and with good light. I liked it and I give it a 5 Will...

This restaurant has a wide outdoor patio right by the beach and ferry. We sat there and had a drink in the afternoon and soaked up the sun. The pizzas coming out for the hikers looked good, so we ended up there in the evening (inside this time) for dinner. Given the top-notch grab-every-tourist-who-comes-by location, I figured the food wouldn't... More

We wondered around Vernazza for a while and decided to try the restaurant with the outdoor seating next to the water. Covered with lots of umbrellas, you are protected form the sun (or even a few raindrops) when you're there. Super friendly service and the best gnocchi we have ever had, with fresh pesto! Despite being in such a touristy... More

Wonderful place to sit on the edge of the beach and watch the crowds. Good food - bruschetta with tomatoes and anchovies; white fish with potatoes and tomatoes. Reasonably priced

Visited Vernazza on a gorgeous spring day & had a hankering for seafood. Ordered the spaghetti with seafood. Pasta noodles were cooked perfectly but the seafood was over cooked to the point of inedible, the sauce tasted more like anchovy than fresh seafood, and I got an octopus or squid hard "beak" in the meal. The langostino was mush and... More

The outdoor setting was beautiful. It was not the setting itself, but the views. The town in one side, and the sunset over the ocean to the other side. Easy to find, just walk in Vernazza towards the ocean, till the end of the road. Food was good and service was friendly.
