We have had an amazing romantic dinner. Food was excellent and abundant and our terrace table was the perfect spot looking the Monterosso bay. Service was also professional, precise and gentle. Highly recommended.

The food is reasonably good and the view is good but like any service business a restaurant makes a difference by the service it gives and all I can say is that I had never seen such impolite staff! They are there to serve you but if you don't speak Italian they throw your wine and water on the table... More

My hotel recommended this place for a birthday dinner. I reserved ahead of time and got a great table outside where you can watch the water splash against the cliffs. It was breath-taking. The service and food were good. I would highly recommend this place.

Without a doubt, this restaurant has best view in Monterosso, new or old town. We made a reservation earlier in the day and were able to get a table outside. The food was very good too and fresh. The sea bass and the lobster with pasta were big hits with our group. Make sure to time your reservation to ensure... More

Our hotel recommended this restaurant for our anniversary. It is located above the tunnel between the old and new town. We arrived for our reservation, and we were led to a small alcove that is nestled in by the stairs leading down to the main restaurant. There are two tables and three chairs, we were seated at the table with... More

The view is the best in Monterosso and the food is fantastic. The service is good and the staff are busy but friendly. Do yourself a favour book the restaraunt and enjoy the view and food.

Apart from the view nothing special. Will never go there again. Got initially attracted by the nice sunset but highly disappointing experience overall.

My husband and I had our first dinner here during our 3 night stay in Monterosso. Make a reservation in advance so you can sit outside at one of their amazing tables with a view. We lingered and enjoyed each course while drinking a local white wine (we hiked past the vineyard earlier in the day). Beautiful view, delicious meal,... More
