When people ask me where my very favorite restaurant in Vernazza is, without hesitation I say Sandro’s. It is one of the only restaurants without a view of the harbor, but that doesn’t keep it from being packed every evening. The crowd Sandro’s draws is also important: locals and Italians. Going where the locals go has always been my secret for finding the best places and I wasn’t disappointed here. So much so that almost one year ago I placed it on my Top Ten Favorite Places to Eat list.
But when the floods hit Vernazza last October, I was afraid Sandro’s would be lost for good. This restaurant was one of the hardest hit and the owner barely escaped with his life. The location of the restaurant and the way the kitchen was set up meant a difficult clean up and recovery.
This hardship makes announcing Trattoria da Sandro’s re-opening even more exciting. If anyone is getting ready to travel to the Cinque Terre, make sure to stop by Vernazza and spend an evening here. Let them delight you!
For the most recent photos from Trattoria da Sandro, I invite you to my blogging friend’s mouth-watering article at Cultural Comments. I have been trying not to be too jealous of Nicole, but come on! Those photos are just NOT FAIR!
I’m obsessed with feedback, let me know what you think.
Love it?? Pass it on!
