I don't even know where to start. Nevermind Hilton, the Burj, Intercontinental, or any 5-star hotel, if you want personalised service, great food and lots of smiles, then this is the place to be. Antonella and her son James are god sent and are really helpful, warm and welcoming people.
You have everything you need here, and Antonella's cooking is worth every single penny. We got served a 7 course meal for three people with massive ribs and such and only got charged 50 Euro's for it, how is that for value?
The place is up in the hills and getting to the town requires some effort, but ask for help and Antonella and James will be more than happy to lend a helping hand. It's seriously worth your time and we will definitely be back for a longer stay.
Thank you so much Antonella and James, we look forward to hosting you at our country. Chin chin.

Antonella e James "il Capitano"
Antonella and her son were a great hosts. Taking care of us very well and even waiting for our arrival till late night, because of our travel issues (Stau..).
The accomodation was very nice and clean. Driving distance to pretty much anything in Cinqueterre is very good. Dinner was very nice, rich and tasty. Proper italian.
Homemade cakes and fruit for breakfast were nice to have.
Notes: Personally I don´t think there is daily cleaning required. I would prefer price per night 10€ cheaper. I was missing proper glasses (made out of glass) during breakfast and also in the room.
Rubbery croissaint (in plastic bag) for italian breakfast was a bit dissapointing. Italians can do this much better. Also some days I may have preffered non-sweet breakfast, but no choice was offered. I can also mention that WIFI worked only downstairs, not in every room. But maybe this was a good thing. Stay out of the modern world ;-)
Absolute majority of scored points was positive. I can only recommend you this place!
Grazie per la recensione, mi dispiace per la colazione che non vi ha soddisfatto, ma nei nostri piccoli B&B usiamo fare la colazione italiana, certo le brioche non erano del forno, ma in compenso avevate la nostra focaccia ligure fresca tutti i giorni, oltre alle torte da me preparate e che avevate apprezzato, la marmellata che faccio io, yogurth sempre preparato da me, fette biscottate, pane, frutta fresca, il nostro buon caffè italiano preparato con la MOKA,succhi di frutta, insomma una bella abbondante colazione.
Capita anche a me quando vado in vacanza trovare usanze diverse, cibi che non conosco, e quindi assaggio......poi tanto torno in Italia e mi faccio un bel cappuccino...L'importante è che siete stati bene e che avete passato una bel soggiorno, infatti quando ci siamo salutati eravate contenti.
Spero di avervi ancora nostri ospiti
Antonella e Giacomo
