While in the area we ate here twice. The fritto misto di mare was incredible as well as the mixed fish grill. I was a welcome meal after several hours at the beach. Would definitely eat here again. Try the lobster, it was phenomenal.

We ate here for dinner while in Monterosso and enjoyed the local fresh sardines immensely. The local white wine from Cinque Terre was superb! Loved the restaurant and loved the place!

My boyfriend and I stayed in Monterosso for a night in December. For dinner, we just walked around until we found an open restaurant that had people inside - since a lot of restaurants are closed during the winter months since tourism is lower. The staff in here were very friendly and we were seated promptly. There were a decent... More

We went at lunch as a group of 10 to this cute little restaurant with outside seating. The service was slow, and the delivery quite uneven. Some of our group did not receive their meals or first course even until others had finished eating. The shrimp lemon rissoto was to die for. The home made minestrone soup was wonderful. The...

We ate here twice when we were in Monterosso. The seafood was excellent: mussels steamed in white wine and garlic, risotto with seafood, antipasto misti al mare, spaghetti vongole (clams)...all wonderful. Great service and suggestions. We ate outside once and inside once. The inside is charming with rustic decor.

Can't say enough about this restaurant! Recommended to us by a tour guide which always makes us suspicious. But this was spot on! (Which proved itself out when as we left we saw a bunch of local guides eating there too). The seafood salad was fresh and tasty and well prepared. The fughi risotto was to die for - came... More

When you walk in the door you pass a sample of the days catch. Seafood salad, marinated anchovies, octopus salad. They had me on the seafood salad. It was really good. The group ate pasta and swordfish. We were all very happy. Others near us ate steaming bowls of seafood cooked in an earthenware crock with either spaghetti or soup... More
