Our Italian friend luckily shared with us this amazing hidden gem. I went with my husband there for dinner and we got a lovely table on the patio, which is great to end a summer day. We ordered different plates and everything was very well...prepared and you can taste that it was made with passion and love. Elena is a young and creative minded chef which brings a twist into the Italian cuisine. Thanks again for the whole team of Ristorante Derna for the good service and making our trip to Moneglia memorable (we literally just drove to Moneglia to visit the restaurant). It was worth the drive 😊 All the best for the future for the entire team!! So bottom line, a must for everyone who wants to visit Moneglia or just pass by there for dinner 😁 P.S.- I will take more pictures next time. I was more focused on the moment and chatting with the nice couple from Germany who had the same idea as us 😊More

Finally a restaurant that serves unique dishes. Derna does ligurian food with their own identity. The entire menu is solely based on local and seasonal produce. They change menu weekly so the choice is limited but varied as there are meat, vegetarian as well as...excellent (what we had) seafood options. All dishes sounded intriguing and inspired curiosity. I wish I could have tasted them all. We had a fantastic dinner there. The food was amazing, the staff is friendly, the decor is light and welcoming and the wine recommendation was spot on. I had dinner in 4 restaurants in Moneglia, and this was definitely, by far, the best one. Grazie mille per la fantastica cena e accoglienza. Continuate cosi! Sicuramente a presto!More

It’s not only the. INCREDIBLE quality of the food that deserves at least 2 Michelin Stars.. It’s also very child- friendly (pasta pomodoro offered for our 15month old girl ) for this kind of Restaurant. Thank you!!

This restaurant was really close to where we stayed when visiting Moneglia, too close. We went there our last last night and I'm really sorry that we just passed it the other evenings. The food was excellent, the wine great and the the service left...nothing to ask for. This was our best dinner in Moneglia, by far. Will definitely go their againMore

We spent several days in Moneglia, traveling into the cinque terre area by train for several hikes, and this is by far the best restaurant in town we encoutered. My 2 sons and spouse also agreed without hesitation. The seafood is excellent. There is this...additional touch by the cook that makes you remember the dishes. The red snapper was perfect. The service was very nice and the atmosphere comfortable, sitting under a canopy of grapevines. Highly recommended.More

I was here 15 years ago with my parents for the first time and was so happy when I saw it is still existing by the same owner. Soo super friendly here and of course the food is the best ever. Here you really taste...bella Italy. Highly recommended to go here if you are in Moneglia.More

Excellent service. Only one white wine choice by the glass. Food good. Far too warm outside as no air movement due to canopy of vines.

It was a long time since I last had a meal like this. The atmosphere is cool and cozy, the staff are kind and helpful, the food is terrific. The choice of the ingredients and their combination is truly original and never trivial. And the...bill is fair and worth every cent.More
