Cinque Terre Italian Restaurant
Gifted Italian-born Chef Aldo Marcon honed his skills in his grandma’s kitchen pretending he was the "Amaretto Cookie Chef". Wowing his way through many notable kitchens like the well-known Cafe Fiorello in Manhattan, he eventually moved to New Orleans, where he cooked alongside such famed chefs as Emeril Lagasse and Mario Batali.
The menu offers SIMPLE FOOD MADE WITH LOVE. Imported cheeses, cured meats, homemade pasta, superior cuts of fish and fresh seafood. The Wild Octopus is poached, pan seared and finished in a to die for garlic-herb sauce and Grandma’s Meatballs are simmered in an unforgettable Pomodoro Sauce. Homemade Fettuccine, Tagliolini, Squid Ink Tagliolini, and Pear & Pecorino Romano Cheese Ravioli comprise some of the succulent seafood specialties.
Chef Marcon is a student to his guests, but full of surprises that please them!

The meal was delicious
No way to correct an error when I rated noise level. It was pleasantly subdued, perfect for conversation. Food was excellent overall, service attentive without being annoying, and quantity of food just about perfect.
Support this local restaurant!
Great spot for any occasion you can't go wrong.
Food is outstanding. Very comfortable atmosphere.
Service was friendly and efficient. Highly recommend
Excellent food, their pasta is amazing! We will definitely repeat.
Great food and service
I had a birthday dinner with friends. The food was excellent as always and the service was great.
The food was phenomenal. Definitely a hidden gem.
Hole in the wall gem in Davie Fl. The food is fresh and delicious and the owners frequently walk around and greet the customers. They also allow you to bring your own wine for a corkage fee. All the appetizers are tasty and the octopus is amazing.
Delicious food. Always come back for more and bring friends.
I can’t say enough great things about Cinque Terre. We’ve been there, I think, 6-7 times within the last 3 months and always had a great experience. I tend to get the same thing but my husband has tried 4 dishes and lived them all. Delicious fresh pasta, amazing sauces.
Excellent dinner at this quaint Italian restaurant. Outstanding entrees, fabulous Valentines Day dessert, and the eggplant appetizer was incredible.
Headed to the Performing Art Center on the campus of Nova University and needed pre-theater dinner. The menu was interesting and there was something for everyone. Service was amazing, we did not want for anything. We had a delicious meal and were on time to the theater. Will return.
This was our 5th time at Cinque Terre within the last 3 months and, as usual, they didn’t disappoint. Great food, service, really nice place to dine for any occasion.
This was my second time at Cinque Terre and my husband’s first. Great service, delicious food! A gem in Davie!
The best grilled octopus I've ever had.Service is food, wait staff friendly
Really enjoyed this restaurant
Grouper was excellent
Shrill with black pasta was excellent
& the chicken Marsala was very tasty
Save room for the cannoli.... so good
Friendly staff, very good food
While not one of the best options in the area, it’s a good choice if you don’t mind a strip restaurant. Food tends to be average.
Service exceptionnel nourriture excellente
Pasta is always fresh and good, but the grilled octopus is to die for.
Food is phenomenal. They make their own pasta. The black ink squid pasta is my favorite with shrimp and a saffron sauce. To die for!! They have drink specials and the owner is super nice.
Best grilled octopus appetizer. All pastas are fresh and tasty.
The specials were different and delicious. The owner was very hands on and helpful with the orders and told us they have a violinist on certain days, so we want to come back. The wine list was really nice, but the wine we ordered was super spectacular!!
This is a hidden gem. The staff was very attentive and helpful. They were quick to accommodate to requests for slight menu modifications.
Cinque Terre is one of our favorite restaurants. Never had a bad meal. Service is always stellar!! Eggplant parm is the best I've ever had, and my friend had Lasagna and said other than her own, it was the best she ever had anywhere!! Wine selection is thoughtful and we always look forward to trying something new on the wine list. Kudos to the Chef - and to Daniel and Luisa!
There were 3 in our party and we were all very pleased with the food and service. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to my family and friends and I will be back again soon.
I love this hidden gem. The owners are spectacular. The food is exquisite. Happy it is in my neighborhood.
This restaurant was quite a find. The food was absolutely delicious and the people couldn’t have been nicer. We highly recommend this restaurant for any kind of occasion. THUMBS UP!
Go for the grilled octopus appetizer, stay for the fresh pastas!
Excellent food and Service, Strongly Recommend
Good variety on the menu. what we ate. Octopus, the Ravioli Special. the Branzino special, the Pear and provolone stuffed pasta and the Frutti de mare were all cooked and served well. we had the Sangria which I thought came in a bottle but was home made and served in a carafe (they could do a better job of making that clear on their Wine list) the service was good. It would be nice if they created a more professional atmosphere by having a dress code for the employees or put them in Uniforms.
Great neighborhood restaurant
Food is delicious. Service not so great. We arrived about 20 minutes before our reservation and the restaurant was empty. It took about 15 minutes for the server to take our order, and she then told us the specials. After we were served our dinner she did not check to see if everything was okay. (The most attentive employee was the adorable bread lady) We later ordered desert and it came way before coffee, which was served without providing sugar. When we finished dinner it was difficult to attract someone's attention to get the check. At this point, the restaurant was only 1/2 full. Perhaps they were understaffed that night?
The staff was very attentive and the food came out at the right time at the right temperature and was delicious. We will definitely come back
Excellent experience! From the food, to server, to the owner; all top shelf.
The appetizers were delicious, the main course was outstanding, the plating was excellent, and the dessert cannoli: WOW!!!
Highly recommend, neighborhood gem.
Excellent food & personal professional service. Good wine
The name of the restaurant is what caught my eye because my dad was from Cinque Terre in Italy. Simply the best Northern Cuisine you could ask for. Daniel and Licia are wonderful hosts and the staff is very friendly. I found this place about two years ago and their menu specials are mouth watering. Daniel always suggests the proper wines to go with our meals and he is always spot on.
Delicious, authentic good. Service on point! Owner takes his time and the place is inviting and with a homey atmosphere. Our second time there...will definitely be back!
We had a wonderful time with our grandkids. We all loved the food. Our service was great. Thanks again for an enjoyable evening.
