Fodor's Expert Review La Lanterna
Editor's Note: This location is no longer in operation.
Colorful chalkboards out in front of this small trattoria by the harbor list the day's selection of fresh fish; the set-up might sound modest, but this is arguably the finest restaurant in the Cinque Terre. During the winter, Chef Massimo serves as a teacher at the Culinary Academy in Switzerland, and he always returns with new ideas for his menu. When available, the cozze ripiene (stuffed mussels) shouldn't be missed. Other offerings may be a touch exotic, such as stingray with Ligurian herbs and white wine.
