After reading the recommendations we decided to try this restaurant and were very sorry we did. The meals that four of us experienced were all sadly lacking. I had the mixed seafood and vegetable platter. Well apart from three tiny slivers of zucchini and three prawns the seafood consisted of fried calamari. Definitely lacking in imagination and flavour. I would not encourage people to go here, they are obviously living on a reputation from years gone by.

Some of the starters are a bit disappointing. The pasta dishes are very nice. Excellent deserts. Very professional service. Beautiful interior.

Restaurant has a view with outside seating and a diverse menu for your taste. Nice choice of wines and good service. One of the nicer restaurants in Riomaggiore.

This restaurant was really amazing. The food was so fresh and delicious. My husband and I both got the tasting menu and it was great! There were like 5 courses of the freshest seafood, and that's saying a lot since I live in New England. I have celiac disease and the chef was able to provide me with a totally gluten free version at no extra cost and the gluten free bread was the best I've ever had. Prices were very reasonable and the views are hard to beat. We even got to listen to live music during the whole meal. Highly recommend, just make sure you make a reservation because there is limited seating.

We went to this restaurant on our last night in Riomaggiore and it was fantastic. The restaurant has a lovely atmosphere with efficient and friendly service. We had the tasting menu which was amazing. Fine dining standards and wonderful seafood at reasonable prices. A very enjoyable evening!
