Amazing Pear and Goat Cheese Ravioli

We decided to go here after looking on Tripadvisor. We had the most amazing pear and goat cheese ravioli. This is not something we would normally order but decided to after all the reviews. We were so happy we did. We also got some pesto pasta and that was equally amazing. We ordered the calamari... read more

The temps were soaring and the crowds exhausting so we went in search of peace and tranquility and fine dining and found it!! All the food was excellent and the local wine excellent. In fact this could have been the best wine so far in this Italian trip. Great service from a very pleasant staff member. Worth seeking out!

Once the food got to our table (very fresh and delicious seafood) we were happy, but I'm not sure the wait was worth it. We didn't have a reservation, but rather than give us a realistic idea of how long the wait would be, we were told to just wait for the next table to open up. Meanwhile people with... More

We visited a few nights ago after recommendations in Rick Steves book. We were very disappointed. The service was very slow and the food just average. There were several people waiting about 2 hours for a table, it really isn't worth the wait !

I phoned for a reservation for 8 to give them warning and they could only supply 2 tables for 4 side by side? This sign I missed, the head waitperson (Michelle) took our tables (4) order and made all this fuss about bringing food out together but nothing worked out. My mistake(?) was ordering Sea Bass, by the time I... More

Ate here with family in beautiful Cinque Terre tonight. While this restaurant came highly recommended, we left feeling disappointed. It took nearly 30 minutes to get water and menus from the time we were seated. When we were ready to order our waiter was no where to be found- this was a trend throughout our evening. After we ordered we... More

The owner seems nice and the food is not bad but nothing prepares you for the awful service. We were ignored by a snob, lazy waiter who took 30 minutes just to get our bread (after being requested 3 times). Between the antipasto and the main course it was almost one hour and a tomato salad was nothing more than... More

Ate here our 2nd night in Monterosso and had a very nice meal. Started with the salami plate and caprese for my wife. She then had the trofie with pesto while I had the crab gnocchi which was the last one for the night, much to the jealousy of the two adjacent tables! Was a whole crab you had to... More
