Bar and Restaurants in Riomaggiore

This lovely village climbs up along the ridges that overlook the water and is characterized by the typical sand-stone colored homes with slate-roofs. Here visitors will be enticed by lots of things worthy of visiting.  

Amidst the traditional products, you can find many options of white dry wine and of course “Sciacchetrà” – which is the wine specialty of the Cinque Terre region. This is their world famous wine and it is made by grape-vines from ‘Fermentino’, ‘Bosco’, and ‘Albarola’ grapes. Sciacchetrà is a fine wine in which you get two selections: sweet or strong sweet.

If you are a taster you can easily recognize the wine by its amber reflected yellow-golden color and the aroma of acacia honey and apricot.

The origin of the word ‘Sciacchetrà’ came from Ligurian dialect, more precisely from the word - sciac which means - press the grapevines

When discussing the typical food of Riomaggiore, you must know that there are no traditionally typical dishes belonging just to this town.
