Eating in Manarola – Cinque Terre, Italy

The sun FINALLY came out when we were in Manarola and we could see the iconic village in its splendour!

We hiked up the hill to have another view of the water and the village…

After the very mini-hike, we treated ourselves to lemon gelato and sorbet.

We made a 6:30pm reservation for sunset dinner at Trattoria dal Billy weeks in advance as it’s one of the most famous restaurants in Manarola.  We didn’t anticipate that the sun would be setting at 9:20pm… but nevertheless, the view from Billy was pretty spectacular….

marinated anchovies in lemon and olive oil….. a bit too sour and salty..


seafood spaghetti…. al dente pasta.. extremely flavourful and so much seafood! This was the first time I saw razor clam in Italian pasta!

After dinner, we headed back down to the harbour to watch the sunset.. but the clouds blocked out the sun….. We ended up having another ice-cream!
