Had the squid and shrimp to start both were very fresh tasty dishes. Simple and pure as food should be. Water was ice cold which was great after climbing up the hill. Mains were truffle pasta and sea bass.

Ate seafood dish here. Main dish was quite nice and + waiter was frendly. Dessert was readymade and really essence tasting. We ordered sparkling water and based on the taste it was taken originally from the tab..

If you want basic ok tasting food, this is a good place for it.

We ate dinner here yesterday.
This place looked classy and very appealing from outside but was basically a big disappointment.

The food was very mediocre, very expensive and served in stingy portions.
First course: salads which were badly presented - no basil on the tomato-mozzarella salad, for example.
The olive oil wasn’t real olive oil and placed next to the cheapest Balsamico vinegar - the cruets were obviously bought in some retail discount outlet...
Second course: a portion of asparagus risotto for two (28 Euros!) - small portion and they didn’t serve any Parmesan cheese with it.
Drinks: the waiter told us the drinks machine was broken and served us tap water for 2 Euros!

Stay away from this place.

We prebooked a table having read the reviews on here.
The walk to the restaurant involves a long climb of endless stairs, but the food and view is worth it!
We arrived at 9pm, just catching the sunset looking onto the hills with the ocean in the background.
The service was good, but a little slow (only 2 waiters serving the whole outside seating 10+ tables)
We had the shrimp and the octopus with potatoes to start, very delicious and the octopus was so refreshing!
For mains, I had the seafood linginine which was delicious and my boyfriend had the stuffed squid, which was like nothing we have had before and absolutely stunning!
The atmosphere was very romantic and would highly recommend!

We visited the place on recommendation of our hotel, Cinque Terre Residence. Looking from the opposite side of the valley it did not look impressive but the view over the village is nice. They seemed to have a lot of room, but if you want to have the best view reservation seems to be in order, or arrive early. We had local trofie pasta to start and different type of fish dishes for mains. All excellent, light, fresh and tasty. Service was prompt. All in all best and most original experience in our four day visit. of the other places that I will not review Grotta was quite OK, the pizzerias very ordinary, Maite food OK but a bit peculiar service. For lunch the fried seafood places were quite good.
