Pleasant seafood restaurant on the main street between the end of the Strada dell'Amore and the path to Corniglia near the waterfront

We ate here on a Saturday in October after a lovely walk along the Strada dell'Amore from Riomaggiore. The cafe on the strada overlooking the cliffs was not yet serving lunch. We picked this place from several along the main street based on its posted menus and attractive terrace.

The terrace was enclosed with clear plastic and the tables had electric heaters which were needed when the wind blew. Although the day was sunny, it was cool in the shade.

We started by sharing a huge mixed seafood antipasto. This was a very attractive mix of two types of shrimp, mussels, octopus, calamari, anchovies, potatoes, and some type of warm fritter.

Then my wife had an excellent dish of gnocchi sauced with Gorgonzola and nuts (this seems to be quite common in Liguria), and I had a huge bowl of zuppa di pesce. This was loaded with shellfish, fish, and potatoes.

With a bottle of water and a bottle of a local frizzante white wine, our bill for two was 58 euros.

We did stop at the Bar-Ristorante dell'Amore on the way back and had coffee and grappa at a table on the grates looking down at the sea crashing in on the cliffs below.
