Really enjoyed our evening meal here. Good Italian fare and local wines. Great view, and it would pay to book.

The trek to this restaurant is worth it, with its amazing view over the town and affordable local options that tasted amazing. We ended up going three times in a row for dinner and the service was friendly and welcoming. I'd recommend the tagliatelle with...More

We ate here twice during our visit to Cinqueterre. The food is fresh and simply prepared. The prices are reasonable. The service is somewhat inconsistent because the staff seemed to be over extended, but it is certainly a place worth going.

We went to this restaurant twice while in Riomaggiore.Both times the food was excellent. The goat cheese wrapped with smoked swordfish appetizer was excellent. The rabbit and the lamb were both cooked to perfection. The grilled vegetables were tasty but not as warm as I'd...More

Large restaurant with lots of tables. View from outdoor tables is spectacular. Meals and drinks are reasonably priced. We shared the mixed seafood entree, fish of the day as main and the platter of cheeses with honey + strawberries with vanilla icecream and balsamic glaze....More

The place has a great view. Service is okey but the food makes it up for it. Pricing is okey, 12 euro for a pasta and 20 euro for a bottle of wine.

Don't visit this place. My wife and I ate here one evening during our visit to Riomaggiore and although the food was relatively good and the house wine characteristic of the area the entire meal was spoiled by the service and attitude of the manager/owner....More

Totally overrated. The whole experience was very awkward from arrival to leaving. When we arrived their was a big group dining at the entrance blocking us from entering and no staff to greet us. Food was very poor for the price, a few people next...More

The restaurant seemed pretty under-staffed on the night that we ate here. We stood at the entrance for a while waiting to be seated and once the guy told us there were no outside tables and we said inside is fine - he continued to...More

We walked up the first night, then booked for subsequent night while at restaurant. You could ring them on 0187 920143. I don't think you can book online. Cheers.
Everyone seems to mention dinner. Would this be a good place for lunch as well?

Yes, it would be a great place for lunch! I agree with Judy D's answer.
Is this restaurant in town or outside? Is it accesible being in town or coming from the train station.

It's at the top of the town, you can easily walk there. Check on a map but basically you just walk all the way up the main street going through town and then up some steps and you're there. It's a very small town.
