Arguably the best restaurant in the Cinque Terre (along with Miky, below). Chef Massimo is famous for his impeccable seafood dishes served in this small trattoria just above the charming harbor. From a table on the terrace here, you can hear the waves lap against the rocks and watch the local fishermen mend their nets. Seafood is king here, with many Ligurian dishes such as spaghetti allo scoglio (spaghetti with mussels and shrimp in a white-wine sauce) or spaghetti ai ricci di mare (with sea urchins). Try choosing something from the chalkboard menu, which features the day’s fresh delicacies.
