Dinner service was terrible & the waiters were nervous & don't really understand English. I don't follow how come it got an average score of 4 stars

Misto Mare was very good. Server was very attentive. Good value for dinner. Would have been a star if we waited for outside seating.

Incredible selection of fresh seafood. Make sure you have the seafood salad before you eat your main meal. I had stuffed anchovies. Everything was delicious, but the salad was out of this world!

We picked this off the main drag restaurant basically because everything else was packed on a holiday weekend...we are very pleased we did. The stuffed anchovies were exceptional. Crisp on the exterior and moist and flavoursome inside. Also ate their gnocchi with pesto and beans...beautiful presentation, delicious. Fresh mixed salad. Washed down with a half litre of house wine served... More

If you really enjoy octopus, then you have to go here. It is a family tradition and a secret on how it is prepared, but is is delicious. They have other great dishes, so give them a try!

Some places offer a 10% discount if you stay there to this place, however, the food is not great. Service lacks by a long margain and what you think you save by 10% is taken up in "cover charge". Try the other places instead. Many good ones.

Very average place with not fresh seafood and prices that bred resentment even with the expectations we had as tourists. Indifferent service.

This restaurant was referred to us as a great value and reliable good meal. The waitress suggested the fish soup, and it was amazing! Atmosphere and service was great, highly recommended.

In a charming tiny alley opposite the Wonderland bakery you'll find a super surprise for a chilled out lunch minus the usual focaccias and pizzas. Service excellent, seafood ravioli scrumptious and ambience a plenty. Would dine here again when next in Monterosso.

We were happy with the food - fish soup was excellent and fish ravioli was also very tasty. Prices are on an average side. Service was good.
