I have read every post I could locate about the Cinque Terre. I will be traveling with my family from Tuscany to the Riviera and decided to take an overnight along the Cinque Terre. I would love to stay in a town to dine at a special restaurant. In all of the posts I have seen general good restaurants but nothing special.
We travel to Italy regularly (once a year) and prefer great meals rather than the fanciest meals. My favorites are the special "locals only" restaurants and Tratorias. My wife speaks fluently and I speak enough to order my food and vino.
If anyone has a recomendation, let me know.
