We stayed at their hotel but didn't visit the restaurant until our last night. Hotel guests get a 10% discount so we decided why not? In the cold months of December, there are very few shops that open in Vernazza till late & this is...More

As other restaurants in Cinque Terre, a big part of the menu has seafood and fish. Food was fine, nothing extraordinary, just right. Good wine selection. In my case the staff was helpful and friendly, even with the restaurant full. Pricey. I liked that one...More

We arrived late to Vernazza (abt 8pm) and all restaurants were closed except Gianni and one more. The restaurant was near packed but we were given a table of four. Tried their Sagetti seafood for 2 and it was really good. After all the Sagetti...More
