We ate at Bar La Torre before hiking down into Vernazza. The location was fantastic; the food was very good as was the service. It would be quite a walk up from Vernazza just to eat at the restaurant.

This is the other restaurant in Vernazza with breathtaking views. Very pretty and charming. Love the casual ambience and stunning views. Absolutely worth the climb! Stop to take pictures and catch your breath along the way!

They make you study the menu buy drinks in a very narrow alley in the front of the restaurant and only after buying and paying you are allowed to sit at a table. Oh and they charge 3 EUR coperta for this. If you want...More

We stopped here as we arrived to Vernazza after hiking from Manarola and it was the perfect place to enjoy the sunset - what a view!! We enjoyed great drinks and appetizers with wonderful service by Yuri. We look forward to returning.

La Torre could not have a better location. It sits on a cliff with stunning views of the very picturesque Vernazza. We went there for drinks after hiking part of the Cinque Terre trail to refresh and soak in the views, and that we did....More

Down in the village way too many tourists for my liking, so decided to go uphill [you loose a couple thousand tourists every 10 meter you head uphill!]. Great view from seats outside. Ordered the fishsoup [50 euro for 2 people], we liked it, but...More

Having a glass of wine on the hike to Corniglia is a definite highlight. Cliffside dining at the restaurant. The server we had was not the kindest and was very abrupt when we sat down at a “four top” and asked us to get up...More

Let me be very clear: the food is really not bad, meaning it is actually good. But the chef is horrible, screaming all the time to the staff. Serving staff is completely not relaxed and rushing all the time. The fact that you have to...More

We mostly visited La Torre for the great view. We read in some reviews that the food wasn’t that great and the service wasn’t either. The opposite is true! Besides the fantastic view over Vernazza, the food is great (huge portions) and the service is...More

Horrible service and food! We waited an hour for our lunch and when we asked for the food our waiter got annoyed told us that we will get it someday. Extremely rude. Such a shame because of the location and view of Vernazza.

I was unable to make a reservation as well. We went in the afternoon. We didn’t have to wait the day we went. Maybe have your hotel call for you before you go?

The walk is not far and the only difficulty would the ascent up stone walkways kinda like rough stairs. The descent down is easier but we used the flashlight feature on our cell phones to be safer after dark. If there is any... More
