We had a fantastic time talking to the lady who was manning the counter of this shop. She was very friendly and let us taste a number of limoncinos, and explained to us how each type was made. We also tried chocolate and strawberry liquor, pesto, and other products from the area. The sales lady spoke very good English as... More

I was in Monterosso al Mare (Cinque Terre) for my birthday, which happened to fall on the first day of their Lemon Festival. This was our third trip to Monterosso, but our first time to Cantina du Sciacchetrà. I really have nothing more to add about the friendliness and outgoing personality of Lorenzo that hasn't already been stated in previous... More

We stumbled across this place because I wanted to buy a large ceramic bowl which was out the front. When we went inside we met such a nice, funny, intriguing man behind the counter who was already entertaining a couple of other tourists. We all got talking and he let us sample local wines, limoncello and pesto. We spent almost... More

This is a fabulous place to sample the various tastes of Italy's liqueurs, pesto, and marmalades for free while enjoying Lorenzo's, the owner, company. The small shop is packed with a huge variety of different items which are perfect for souvenirs or just bottles to share while touring. But the reason to return is Lorenzo. Smart and funny, he regaled... More

We purchased souvenirs from this store in 2009 & returned again a few weeks ago to re-stock our supply of melone and strawberry liquers and to purchase souvenirs for friends. The store has changed hands but retains all of the charm that the old one did. The owner, Lorenzo, was very friendly and service-oriented. He offered up samples and I... More

Wide selection of products, you can get free tastings of wine and local liqueurs. Owners speak English and many locals stop by just for a chat and a glass of wine.

The owner is so friendly and funny! You have to visit him. We wandered in here after walking the streets of Monterosso for a while; just to take a glance at what was being sold/offered here. The owner immediately struck up conversation and started us on a tasting spree of his delicious limoncello varieties! Between 'shots' of his homemade limoncello,... More
