We were in Europe September 2022 and part of the experience for us is the food. In do a lot of research and thought I would share some of the AMAZING places we found this trip.
Cinque Terre - Specifically Monterosso
Agriturismo Buranco Farmhouse... What an experience!! And well worth the "uphill walk". Giovanni and his family are so welcoming, and the homegrown products show the love they have for Monterosso. The panoramic views! The areas to sit and enjoy the quiet. The food and wine are perfection! The open-air kitchen and dining areas are fabulous! We had dinner here every night that there were tables available. We are visiting again the end of May with our grown children and will be eating here every night again.
Enoteca da Eliseo is the perfect spot to sit out on the piazza after the throngs of tourists have left for the day and enjoy beverages. Tables that Mary will always encourage you to share with other travelers. Quietly sitting and enjoying your beverage or visiting with other fellow travelers is so enjoyable!
MaeCaa Bakery Cafe has great coffee! As well as fabulous breakfast options.
Bacco Matto has wonderful food! The ambiance, staff, location and food are AMAZING. My husband is a picky eater and said that the ravioli with shrimp was the best pasta he has ever had.
Vini e Vecci was my favorite. The food is authentic, staff is wonderful, centrally located, the Father sitting on his bench outside adds to the experience! Reservations are best! Do whatever you can to have dinner at this gem!
Les Cocottes - High end food close to the Eiffel Tower. Have never had a bad meal here.
Le Chaumerie on the island behind Notre Dame - Fabulous for lunch or dinner! Cost is very reasonable as well.
Hope these recommendations are helpful to your future travels.
