Having eaten a number of seafood liguini and spaghetti dishes in different places around Monterosso we had to return to this place as it was easily the best. On both visits the food was excellent and consistent and we enjoyed the atmosphere and service which was without fault. We found the staff attentive and eager to please. Maybe a charming... More

This place was recommended to us by a local. There are tables outdoors but they were reserved. In the end, I think we were better inside as it was air conditioned. Plus, a wind came up and really blew hard on the people on the terrace. We had a seafood spaggetti. It was very good, with plump mussels, clams and... More

There were 7 of us for dinner. We sat outside and the first thing I noticed were the tiny little ants on the table. Our guide brought it to the attention of the server and we thought she was going to do something about it but apparently not. Our guide just squished them all with her fingers but that immediately...

Pretty good pesto trofie, tuna, but mussels rather bland. Service very hurried - waiters run around with not much effect. I'd say the place is overpriced; and remember that they don't take cards. Oh, and strangely enough the place had lots more flies inside that any other Monterosso restaurant we visited (and we've been to many)

Something has happened here since the rave reviews. In particular, the waitress was impolite to the point of being hostile, snatching plates off tables on the run. While numerous patrons sat at empty tables, she took time out to fraternise with four or five gentleman callers. When I asked why we were still waiting for our food when the people... More

Waitress' attitude was one of the worst I've ever seen... Was just about to leave just when the cups were filled with wine. Food is just "x", average, don't worth it for the price you pay. I would not recommend this place for any single reason to any traveler.

While on a cruise with our daughter and her family, we had a stop in the cinque Terra. Monterosso was the place designated for time enough for lunch. We were wandering around and saw some wonderful seafood being served at Trattoria Da Oscar and decided to stop there. We had a delightful lunch outdoors that included seafood with pasta in... More

Agree with other reviewers that food is good (loved the spaghetti with clams) and service is slow, so be patient. The restroom situation is weird as you have to take a key and go across/down the street to a seemingly random door to use it. Prices are reasonable.
