We visited Vernazza 3 years ago and had lunch at Gianni Franzi. In my review at that time, I said that they had the freshest, most delicious Pesto with local pasta (Trofie) that I had ever eaten. We returned last week and tried it again...More

We eat here on our first night in Vernazza. it is located right on the harboyr front and it has great views. Its a bit pricey but you would expect that in a small village. But the food was great. I would come back here...More

Good food, very good service, and great atmosphere. The seafood dishes were delicious, well prepared, and presented casually but with class. Our server was very friendly and attentive to our needs. The prices were modest, considering the quality. An overall very good experience.

We enjoyed local specialities from the region here, alongside the water. Excellent food and attentive service. Extensive menu - vegetarians will find typical fare for this area (caprese offerings, pasta with tomato-based sauces, salads, etc.). Nice location in Vernazza!

We had a good time at Gianni&Franzi. At Vernazza‘s most visited place, the port, the team still manages to be extremely kind and understanding. The food was freshly prepared and very delicious. We felt very comfortable.

Although Vernazza is known for it's scenery, not necessarily it's food, we enjoyed our meal here. We passed by several times thinking because of the location it might be too touristy. We ordered the octopus and the pesto shrimp pasta. Both were very good.

Was travelling with my two children and was well looked after here, shortly after sitting down we were given a complimentary platter of cured meats and olives. I assume this was because we waited a bit for a table but we hadn't booked and it...More
