These villages are a favored destination for travelers to Italy where seafood is prevalent. Pesto, a condiment made of fresh basil, is the flagship of tradition in the region.

We always have on the menu, Muscoli (mussels), Polpo (octopus), Gamberi (shrimp) and a variety of seasonal seafood, artisan pizzas along with house-made pastas.

    Was a great date night. Good view. Good value on portions. Service a little slow but I think that's because we don't drink alcohol and they give you a nice social moment before ordering.

    Everything was outstanding except for the calamari (tough to chew) and the chicken parmigiana (too bland & came without pasta). The outstanding dishes were the steelhead, the fettuccine w/ prawns, and the carpaccio. The bread at the start was also great. Dessert was not bad.

    What a lovely evening out! Exceptional, authentic Italian cuisine. Our server, Hartley, was an absolute delight and made our meal truly memorable! We didn’t want to leave! We were drawn to the restaurant out of curiosity because of the name and the high ratings. We have traveled to Cinque Terra and it is our favorite place in Italy. We highly recommend this restaurant!

    A spacious restaurant with a good variety of choices on the menu. There is a good amount of bar seating and the restaurant has a vibrant tenor. Our server Johanna was present and attentive during our dining. We had ordered a pizza to share and start but the kitchen got ahead of itself and sent out appetizers first. Johanna caught the miss upon service and got the rest of the meal on track. The Margherita pizza was delicious. The braised wild boar rigatoni was very savory and well prepared.

    I was impressed by the food, which shone because of the quality, fresh ingredients and simple preparation/seasoning - this was just how I remembered meals in Italy! What made our dinner especially wonderful; however, was the attentiveness of our server, Hartly. He took care of everything before we even had time to think of what we might need or want. Our party enjoyed the calamari appetizer, green salad, pesto pasta, and lamb dishes. My dinner guests were partial to the tiramisu but I highly recommend finishing the meal the Panna cotta - so good!

    We celebrated our 25th anniversary with an amazing dinner at Cinque Terre. Johanna was our server and a true professional. She had great recommendations on the menu and pairings. She made our celebration special with some nice little touches Homemade pesto and pasta was incredible and seafood was fresh and flavorful. My husband and I agree that hands down, Johanna was one of the best servers we've ever had.

    From the moment the reservation was made, to the time the bill was paid, the experience was less than mediocre. The booking process was unnecessarily complicated. When reaching out, I had to call several times (more than 6) before anyone would even answer the phone. The customer service over the phone and in person was extremely unwelcoming, unhelpful, and all around just poor. The food and wine was SEVERLY overpriced for the flavor and options presented. Out of all high dining experiences, this was the worst. My business will not be returning, in addition to cancelling any and all future reservations, not recommending this establishment, and highly encouraging other EA and executives across the Amazon campus to not dine here. This was our very first time at this restaurant and the environment, accessibility, staff, food and beverage options, were a disappointment and embarrassment.

    Nice place, with a pretty limited, but still good Italian menu. Somebody who actually speaks Italian needs to re-translate it, though; they do things like call something "vitello" in the Italian name, then (mis)-explain in English that it is a mixture of beef and pork. The staff were a little bit rough around the edges, e.g. not knowing how to serve a bottle of wine, and stuff like that, but they were friendly, cheerful and welcoming, so it was all fine. Pretty good meal for the value.

    Cinque Terre RistoranteResponded on May 4, 2022

    Ciao Larry, grazie per aver trovato l'errore. Non e' un problema di traduzione (l'italiano lo mangiamo a colazione lol) ma la ricetta e' cambiata e non e' stata cambiata la scritta in Italiano. Comunque grazie per le 4 stelle!

    Not so bad. But just for one-time-visit. Dishes are okay but dishes serving is really poor. The plates are all in scratches, look really old. The same with all cutlery. All dessert spoons were different style and also in scratches like someone had scoured them on the asphalt. Glasses were not shiny. Sofas are old and you can see pieces of leather that simply fell off. In this restaurant are not paying attention to details. But all these details create the impression of a restaurant Personal is good

    Cinque Terre RistoranteResponded on May 3, 2022

    Dear Guest, we understand that is possible to confuse restaurants when writing a review. We believe this is a case of mistaken identity. We are a newer restaurant and everything 'looks new' and we don't have anything scratched. Also, you weren't seated at a "sofa" but at a crispy white linened table by our open kitchen. Our cutlery is new and our glassware shiny. In fact, ALL glassware was replaced two weeks ago. Please send us a private message, we would love to hear from you. Thank you!

    It took forever to get our cocktails and place our food order. The waiter was very nice but obviously had too many tables. The food was uneven. While the carpaccio was lovely, my salmon trout was overcooked and dry as was the chicken parm. We were in Seattle for a conference so probably won't be back.
