Our last dinner in Monterosso and after reading the reviews, decided we needed to try Ciak! We were not disappointed. Started with mix plate of anchovies and then decided on mussels bolonase and spaghetti w/mussels. Waiters were very helpful and speak English. Also a dolce...More

We were on our honeymoon in cinque terra and stumbled upon this busy restaurant. Servers were friendly and we felt rushed. We had our food on the table in less than 5 mins and all courses at once. Food was just average. If you do...More

This restaurant features a quasi-industrial atmosphere and an open kitchen. The atmosphere is deliberately un-fussy and the service somewhat offhand. I had fried, stuffed anchovies (4) and, for a change of pace from seafood, gnocchi with ragu. Both were delicious. My husband had prosciutto and...More

The beautiful steaming huge clay bowl of seafood risotto was wonderful, fresh and full of mussels, prawns, shrimp, and clams. The fresh bread and olive oil along with the house wine complimented the meal perfectly. We ended the meal with pan cotta that was creamy...More

Watched the Chef prep for dinner one night and knew that I had to try. I was not disappointed. Swordfish cooked to perfection! The gnocchi were some of the biggest pillows of pasta I've ever seen! Prices a little high.

The food here was awesome. The service was actually pretty quick considering that everywhere else in Europe it took about 2 hours to get our food and checks. The seafood ravioli was the best thing ever.

This was the best of the restaurants we ate in in Monterosso. Great lively, loud atmosphere, cool decor. Like most of the other restaurants here the wine list is almost exclusively cinque terre based which is a little challenging for the tourist - and the...More

This restaurant is fantastic, great location just off the main square and a good atmosphere in the evening. Outside seating is a must but you'll need to book this in advance! The same morning will be fine. The seafood soup was the highlight, a big...More

We arrived early the restaurant was empty and didn't had a great atmosphere initially. We placed our order steering at the seafood display, and tried a bit of very thing as starter (tapas style). as the room started to fill up with punters. The smell...More

The appetizers here were a little disappointing (maybe we made the wrong choices?) but we all enjoyed the main courses and the dessert. My daughter hasn't stopped raving about the panna cotta ever since! The pasta with Geneovese pesto was delicious too and the local...More
