Food Along the Cinque Terre

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.

    In the friggitoria department try:

    La Cantina di Colombo (via di porta soprano, 57, tel 0102475959 is a 35-seater with simple and delicious
    Trattoria del Liberale (via Monte Fasce, 91, tel 010395248) because it is all Genova, all the time; pure Ligurian tradizione
