OUR FOOD STORIES

We started in 2014.

This place was empty for a long time. Just one chair and a table close to the gate to help everyone find their inspiration.

Listening Nessun Dorma, the name of a beautiful song from the Opera Turandot by Pavarotti,

the best Italian tenor.

In front of us the colorful houses of Manarola.

This has been the beginning of our dream. 

 

                 

From the first day we have been proud to prepare food for all the world. Guests from America, Australia, China and New Zealand come in our place just to eat a simple bruschetta with pomodoro or to drink a glass of a local wine.

Honestly all type of works are stressful and hard, even if you have the best sea-view of the world.

The only way to keep nice and easy your work is smiling and sharing your passion.

                 

This is our new adventure! 

We love Manarola, the beautiful picture of the colorful houses is our home. 

Have you ever seen the top of the town with the historical buildings?

 The church and the bell-tower all around the square?

                 

OUR WINE STORIES

         

 

We selected wine producers that prefer quality over quantity, respecting the time of the nature to produce their wines. 

Old and young wines, different ages, colors, flavors, aromas, texture.

Here you can find great Italian wines

We love wine! To complete our offering, we have opened a new Cantina at the top of Manarola village. Near the church we found this beautiful space dates back to '800. 

We fell in love!

Local fresh products for everyone

What we do is to create a unique combination of flavors. We use fresh bread, fresh tomatoes and a lot of fresh fruits!

36 Hour in the Cinque Terre - CLIFFSIDE COCKTAILS, 6 P.M.

A strenuous hike ought to culminate with rest and a reward, both of which can be procured at Nessun Dorma. This casual outdoor bar, which opened in 2014, occupies a landscaped terrace on a promontory overlooking Manarola’s timeless vista: pastel houses perched on a cliff, fishing boats in a small harbor, tanned teenagers diving off the breakwater into the indigo sea. Claim a table in the gardenlike seating area and order a limoncino spritz, a refreshing riff on the classic that mixes the local lemon liqueur with prosecco and mint in a glass jam jar (8 euros, or about $9).

A breathtaking landscape, that of a terrace overlooking the sea of ​​Manarola.

A dream location, the Nessun Dorma Wine Bar is the perfect place to have a drink with friends or loved one and enjoy one of the many bruschetta that make up the culinary, immersed in a sea of ​​nature among the green of the territoryand the cobalt blue sea below, in front of a sunset that ignites the sky with its unique shades. A terrace, clinging to the rock, which is developed on the headland of Punta Bonfiglio and highlights the scenic wonders of one of the most valuable areas of Liguria, became UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.

Watch the sunset at Nessun Dorma Bar.

Walk down to the Nessun Dorma Bar and order yourself cocktail, sit back and relax! The food is simple but it’s full of fresh, flavoursome ingredients. We had a huge cheese and meat platter to share but there are bruschetta and salads available too!

Nessun Dorma Cantina - the best place to learn&drink about wine.

The best place in Manarola for learning about (and more importantly tasting!) the wines of Cinque Terre occupies a stone-walled 16th-century building near the town church. The tiny shop sells bottles and wines by the glass, and also offers wine tastings. Extremely knowledgeable staff can happily share insight into different varietals, growing methods and the unique features of wines from the Italian Riviera and beyond.
