This isn't neopolitan style or fancy pizza. But this was probably the best slice I had in Italy. The bread is almost like it was fried or griddled. It was just so dang tasty. Eat it as a snack or for lunch.

Three of us bought focaccia and farinata at this place for lunch. Focaccia was not so warm but farinata was just ready when we came and it was delicious. Also bought castagnaccio and it was tasty as well. After having eaten all we have bought, we went back again to get one more farinata and focaccia. Inexpensive and delicious. We... More

Nothing bad to say about this place, you can easily find a cheap, tasty focaccia - and in so many flavours! Recommended. The inside is clean and roomy, and service is warm.

The line was a little long at 1pm on a Saturday but well deserved. Good value for excellent assortment of focaccia and pizza.

Excellent focaccia and pizza to take along on a hiking trip. Good prices and plenty of choices. Bought focaccia and pizza in three other of the Cinque Terre villages, but this was by far the best place.

Great way to stretch your budget. This little place has the best focaccia anywhere. I think I tried every kind they had over the 4 days I was in Monterosso. I was especially taken by the kind with rice, so unusual (and oh so carb-laden). Italians snack on focaccia in the late afternoon, but don't wait that long to buy... More
