Restaurant recommendations Portovenere, SML, Camogli

Does anyone have any recommendations for restaurants in any of these villages? Leaving tomorrow - welcome any advice. Thanks

In Camogli I suggest, for an excellent dinner, LA CUCINA DI NONNA NINA.
It's closed on Wednesday. On Saturday and Sunday has also lunch, otherwise only dinner.
Have a nice trip.

The Casmona is a hotel and restaurant on the second floor of a building that looks out on the harbor. Has an umbrella pine growing out of the side of the building. Good solid food. Sometimes an accordian player.

Rosas up the hill from the harbor with a view down onto it is the family place to go. When we've been there there have been lots of locals celebrating occasions. Good fish dishes expertly filleted to remove every single bone. Again this place has a tree growing right in the middle of the terrace part of the restaurant. I don't know what it is with Camogli and trees.

We've stayed at the Cennobio dei Doge hotel several times but never eaten at their restaurant. Just looks too big and sterile.

Locanda Miranda. It's in a little town south of Cinque Terre, but friends have said it was a memorable meal. You can find a few snippets about it on the web if you search.

I forgot, one more suggestion near Camogli--in the adjoining town of Recco, a place called Manuelina serve this fantastic flat bread sort of pizza like thing with goopy, stringy cheese on it. Excellent, as are the other dishes in this restaurant, recommended by Fred Plotkin in his useful book entitled Italy for the Gourmet Traveler. The offical name for this stuff is focaccia formaggio del Recco. Be sure to try some.
