Great outdoor seating. We started with two wonderful pasta dishes and then shared a baked sea bass. Added a nice bottle of white wine. One of the nicest meals on our 15 day trip in Italy. Excellent service. Fair value.

The view is the only thing going for this restaurant. The staff are rude. One even tried to give me an etiquette lesson on where to place my silverware. They could care less about service. The food is mediocre at best. We thought they would have excellent seafood as they were recommended by a friend. Not so.

They greet Italians warmly. And ignore Americans or treat them badly. We saw several instances of this while we ate. There are many reasons for this to be number 21 of 28 restaurants in Vernazza. Americans be prepared for bad service or better yet, find a different place to eat. Wish we had checked with Trip Advisor in advance.

The waiter we had was amazingly kind and the food was fantastic! I had the pasta with pesto and I would highly suggest it! I'd love to go back someday!

We had several of our meals here while in Vernazza and they were all excellent. Especially enjoyed their minestrone-style soup. It's right in the main square so the view if fabulous. Wait staff were friendly and efficient.
