We were looking for a quick lunch of focaccio on the beach and looked at all the options. We decided to try Il Massimo based on the way it looked and were not disappointed. Enjoy!

Good Focaccia, giant Morretti bottles of beer and a great ocean front location. Right beside the train station.

Located in the front of the trainstation, Was surprized with Delisious Focaccia. Ask for fresh hot or ask to warm it up.Take away or eat on one of the 2 available outdoor high tables. Do not go far because you might want more of that.

This focaccia spot is right outside the station facing the beach. At €4.50 each the focaccia's were delicious and made on the day if not right as you order. They make their own focaccia, evident in the soft texture with a lovely crust. Huge range of variety to choose from. We had eggplant and tuna focaccia to share. They may... More

Delicious selection of foccacia and pizza, along with some fresh desserts. We had the onion; zucchini and goat cheese; and margherita varieties. All amazing, the zucchini was our favorite! A few tables to eat outside. Good value and good food!

We visited this place 3 years ago and loved it. We came back again this September and loved it just as much. We've eaten focaccia bread all over the Cinque Terre (both this year and the last time we were here) and this is our favorite spot. Delicious!

We stopped by Il Massimo for a quick lunch in Montorosso. Although the line was long it moved quickly and we were even able to grab one of their two tables. The focaccia sandwiches were fresh, tasty, and reasonably priced!

We rented lounge chairs for the day and of course forgot to bring water or food by 2pm we went venturing. Their focaccia sandwiches were delicious and reasonable we had limited choice because of the late hour so go before 1 to have a choice. The sandwich was very reasonably priced and good size and their drink were cold!

This location is at the train station, just under the main terminal area, at the entrance. They've got quiche-like focaccia, sandwiches, focaccia pizzas, and desserts. It's really just a "to-go" stand, but there are benches in front. Very affordable, on the go food. Best focaccia in Monterosso.
