We were looking at one restaurant after another in Monterosso and they all looked so touristy. This was on a side "street" the menu looked good and we were very hungry. Everything was very tasty. We had fried calamari and anchovies. I had a Ligurian "ravioli" triangles called pansotti with walnut sauce. My wife had her second fish soup. Different... More

This restaurant, tucked away on a side walking-street just off the main road has both indoor and outdoor tables. The food and the locally produced table wine were excellent. We had a fresh seafood appetizer, ravioli and a salad that were healthy portions. Oddly, having 2 ½ litres of wine was less expensive than a full litre. Having had a... More

The gnocchi, the ravioli and my dish, trofie in pesto were SUPERB! To Italian food, I'm not a newbie and... More

This is tucked away a little off the way road but that made it more appealing to me. Service is not that treat but the seafood dishes definitely made up for it. Wine is extremely affordable as were both dishes we got. I has the seafood ravioli and I won't forget how good it was for a long time to... More

In the heart of Monterosso's "old town", you will find Al Carugio down a side street, tucked away. Don't be shy follow the signs for a great meal. Our waiter was terrific and very American friendly. All the food we had was very good. They have a lot of the special regional choices. So this is a good resturant to... More

This is the BEST restaurant in my entire Italian trip: Seriously perfect Seafood Risotto, they have this perfect Steam Fish that's super fresh, and all the Pasta (Pomodoro as well as the Clams & Garlic) are PERFECTLY AL DANTE! Even their TIRAMISU is SUPER MOUTHWATERING! Eat here and nowhere else!

We came across this restaurant while wondering the streets in Monterosso. We were just in time to miss the rush as we sat down immediately but the restaurant became full within 20 mins of us getting seats. The staff was friendly but unfortunately it took extremely long for us to get our food (2 pasta dishes). We easily waited over... More

Local ligurian cuisine and great atmosphere in a little laneway. Wished I could have gone back to try more dishes.
