Cinque Terre is a beautiful area of the Italian Riviera which is comprised of five villages. The towns are connected by medieval style walkable paths. These villages are a favored destination for travelers to Italy where seafood is prevalent. Pesto, a condiment made of fresh basil, is the flagship of tradition in the region. At Cinque Terre, we make our pesto every day from the freshest and top quality ingredients. We always have on the menu, Muscoli (mussels), Polpo (octopus), Gamberi (shrimp) and a variety of seasonal seafood, artisan pizzas along with house-made pastas.

We came because they had gluten free pasta and didn’t know much more about the restaurant. We were celebrating 2 birthdays and i was hoping it would be okay and it couldn’t have been more perfect—great atmosphere—the food was outstanding and our waitperson Zoe was fantastic —that perfect combination of warm and sociable but also laser focused on great service. I love to go out to eat and while a good part of my joy is the ambiance and the food what really makes it wonderful for me is having a great waitperson—it is a very big part of my dining joy and Zoe is one of the best and most enjoyable I have had in a while. She was a big part of making it such a lovely occasion. Turned out that we went to the perfect place to have a memorable birthday evening! Thank you!!

We spent two hours in the restaurant and were still rushed to eat our entrees, as they came out 45 minutes after ordering. Our server was really sweet and her service was great at first, but as the restaurant filled up she seemed to be serving too many tables as the service quickly dwindled. We ended up wasting half of our main course after scarfing down a few bites as we had reservations elsewhere that we had to make it to (which we informed our server about). The cherry on top of our visit was the $50 steak my wife ordered ended up being medium-well rather than medium and we did not have the time to send it back. All in all, our visit was not worth $300+ and I was hoping for a bit higher quality service and food for the price.

The complimentary bread was delicious. I loved the Wild Boar Rigatoni. Ask the wait staff for Italian wine recommendations. They were very accommodating with my husband's service dog. We had a perfect table.

Everything was delightful (the food, the staff, the vibe) but for one thing. The plastic seats are incredibly uncomfortable over the course of a long dinner. The booth seating is wonderful, but the IKEA type chairs at the dining tables were not comfortable.

Shout out to Colin who made our party feel very welcome and well cared for.

It was fantastic. Service was excellent and the food was delicious. We were especially impressed with the pasta and bread. Both tasted fresh and house made, so they definitely lived up to that claim. Wine list was wonderful and after dinner menu was excellent as well. Rachel, our waitress, was friendly and got us our orders quickly, but left plenty of time between courses so we didn’t feel rushed. Overall impressed with the restaurant and we will be back!

Trendy atmosphere but the three different items we ordered were mediocre. The chicken parmigiana was tasty but nothing special and the side pasta that came with it was mixed with the same tomato sauce and was not complimentry to the chicken parm. Boring. In addition my pasta dish was cold and glommed together. If it had been served without sitting awhile, it probably would have been ok as noodles had a nice texture. My husband' pizza was just ok. My daughter's pesto pasta also was also nothing special. They write interesting descriptions of the food on the menu, making it sound like a unique experience but it isn't.

We had an amazing business meal at Cinque Terre! I was truly impressed with the staff on hand. They seated us early when we found out we were crunched for time and made the extra effort to check on our table frequently so we wouldn't miss our afternoon meetings. The pasta was fresh, the pizza was beautiful and the hot coffee was a nice surprise! We'll definitely be back soon.

2 of us had exceptional meals and 2 of us were not blown away. Our server was attentive and the pasta was tender and fresh. The lemon fettuccine with shrimp was a winner but the pesto fettuccine was not as favorable as some would have liked.

Excellent food and service. I had the best Seafood soup of my entire life, really, hard to describe how good it was. The focaccia and spiced oil is excellent and so is the thin crust pizza. Some very nice Italian wines on the list. A great restaurant with great staff

Management does not know what they doing. In the face of Covid problems they overbook the restaurant making it impossible to provide proper service.

The food here is amazing. I am vegetarian and was told that any pasta item on the menu could be made vegetarian, which is great!! The wine was very good as well. Vivienne was our server and was super friendly and helpful. The place was a little loud but we didn’t mind.

My family and I had a lovely dinner with Victoria as our server. Food was delicious and reminded us of Cinque Terre! The Pesto, pastas, Zuppa de Pesce, and Octopus were all very authentic! Barrata and prosciutto were also very fresh. Affagato and the profiteroles were great too. The only thing we didn’t care for was the cannoli which was bland but everything else was outstanding!
Our server was friendly, attentive and helpful. We will definitely return on our next visit.

One of the most pleasant surprises is that the ventilation was awesome and didn't come out smelling like the kitchen
