Our group of three ladies arrived at La Posada around 11:00 am. before they were officially open. We had partially climbed down the many steps of Corniglia in the heat of the day, and then climbed back up, spotting the outdoor garden area of La Posada on the right. There was a arched doorway covered in yellow roses. (Their indoor restaurant is separate and across the little road, but we wanted to eat out of doors with a gorgeous view of the ocean and garden area.) The waitress informed us they were not serving lunch until 12:00 pm. but we could have cold drinks. As we were hot and thirsty, this was music to our ears. We enjoyed crisp white wines and soft drinks, until lunch service started. The gnocchi was delicious and I highly recommend it. This place is called "La Posada" for a reason....it is a true resting place, and a beautiful garden oasis.

Very nice view from the patio. But the waiters were both unfriendly and slowly. After we ordered our drinks the waiters vanished for 30 minutes. Our question if we can also eat something was just requested with an unfriendly NO

We stumbled upon this restaurant while staying at Corniglia. The view is brilliant facing the expands of the ocean. The menu options are limited but the food is extraordinary. The sea food and particularly the home pasta cooked in truffle oil with shrimps is highly recommended. The service is excellent. A must visit while at Cinque Terre

Called here for a light lunch. Beautiful gardens and sea view. Main restaurant is opposite side of road...as are toilets. In this case they can't be called 'conveniences'!
Good seating arrangement. House white wine was palatable. Food comes from across the road...not a speedy process...nor an easy one for waiting staff. However, on a beautiful day and delightful scenes this was no hardship.
Lots of nice seafood, salads, etc. delivered to other tables. Our bruschetta...one pesto, and the other tomato. Both bursting with flavour and plenty to share.
Glad we chose this little, slightly out of town, establishment.

Accidentally stumbling upon this delightful spot as we began our trek from Corniglia to the north, we were quite pleasantly surprised with the service, the selection, and the quality of a fantastic meal. The view of the Mediterranean couldn't be beat either!! It was the perfect way to fill us up in order to be ready for the long hike ahead.
