The place: Trattoria La Scogliera, Manarola, Cinque Terre, Italia
So here we are in the Cinque Terre, land of alici marinate, foccacia, cozze, e pesto, yet the weekly pizza must be consumed. We literally stumbled into the place downstairs from our apartment as our only option this evening. It was my fault: I twisted my ankle hiking high above Vernazza during the day and deemed it best to stay close rather than stress the ankle further. All-in-all not a bad experience.
Pizza Quality: 2 Tasty enough, but the crust nothing special, average ingredients, and small selection of pies not very creative.
Service: 2 Nice people, family-oriented but a little slap-dash and disorganized as they tried to accommodate everyone including one waitress’s ill-behaved children who threw french fries at each other.
Ambiance: 2 Cute place, sea-theme (surprise), with lots of nooks, outdoor seating, but some tables in the middle of traffic flow.
Total Points: 6
Returnability: Go-to Place – fine if you are in the area
