Had a wonderful lunch, eating the local croxetti with delicious sauce washed down with refreshing crisp local vermentino wine, everything was superb and the staff were really friendly and helpful. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Varese Ligure is a small town just a short drive from Levanto, but it is like stepping into another world. We arrived on a Saturday about 1 pm and the streets were empty. Fortunately, Vinera del Borgo was open. The inside eating area is tiny,...but cozy. We stood out as obviously American tourists, but the owner and the other guests welcomed us just like we were old friends stopping by for a Saturday lunch. We got the Croxetti, a disk shaped pasta, served with a cream sauce and walnuts. It was fantastic and very authentic rural Italian cooking. After lunch we strolled the empty streets. Around 3:30 the people began filling the town square. What had been a sleepy place became alive. Apparently the long lunch/nap is still alive in small Italian towns. It was wonderful to experience this pace of life, so different from the tourist packed Cinque Terre. If you are looking for a town where you can see real Italian life, Varese Ligure will fill the bill. And Vinera del Borgo will provide a wonderful sense of rural cooking.More

Very nice place. Small list of very tasty dishes. We had a very good local wine recommended by the waiter. Suitable for a nice little dinner or just for a glass of wine with your friends. Unfortunately the place has no Wi-Fi connection.

Great wine bar with a few small tables outside on the pavement. Great for observing Italian activity in this typical Italian small town. Enjoyed great local wine, recommended by the owner of the wine bar. He was very modest about his English language skills, but...was very able to recommend the wines on offer. Got lovely bites to eat for free with every glas of wine. Bit of prosciuito, focaccia, local salami and olives. Our every day stop after having done our shopping :-)More

This is a great little place serving excellent wines and great dishes. It is not a restaurant as such but has a very good daily menu of pasta and generally lighter dishes. Very good wines by the glass or bottle. The owner is friendly, helpful...and very knowledgable. It's a great place to stop and a lighter alternative to a restaurantMore
