On the outside, this ristorante-enoteca just looks like a ramshackle fishermen's osteria , with a small, netted seating area directly on the marina in Riomaggiore (in fact, there may be some small fishing boats sloshing underneath you as you dine). Inside, the vibe transforms, and you're in a white-washed, modern space that could be in Milan—except for the fact that the vaulted room is carved out of the cliff rock and much of that rough-hewn stone is left charmingly exposed. Whether you're seated inside or outside at Dau Cila, it's the best sit-down meal in Riomaggiore. While the place could easily coast on setting alone, it also does quality renditions of traditional Ligurian specialties (here, as elsewhere in the Cinque Terre, seafood is the headlining act), as well as some interesting choices such as ceviche-like appetizers of swordfish and tuna tossed with grapefruit, lemon, and apples. The wine cellar is one of the best in the region, with a refined selection of local and Italian wines and knowledgeable staff to help with food pairings.
