Excellent seafood and pasta with special desert

Very good local seafood with good pastas. Service was very good. Eventhough we did not order the Venti cake, the waiter brought one anyway and it was the best cake I have ever had (I am not much of a cake eater)

Arrived in town late and Via Venti was recommended to us. We showed up and had a wonderful dinner with the house wine. We were the last patrons in the restaurant, and the owner and his wife cooked us up a nice Sea Bass and Pasta and catered to us until we left.

Ristorante Via Venti was recommended by Emanuela from Hotel Pasquale. I ordered the Crab with gnocchi. If you think the photo looks good it cannot describe how delicate the flavor was in each bite. All the flavors were perfectly balanced with no one ingredient overpowering in this exquisite dish. To top off dinner we were treated by another guest with... More

The place is touristy, it is right by a "local" shop catering souvenirs, the food is decent and the service was good. On the up side they are having a few tables outdoor that pretty much stands right in an narrow aisle.

Very attentive staff. Starter was the highlight; we shared the seafood antipasto and it was great. Quiet, tricky to find, but worth it. Wine good too. A great find.

My wife and I visited this restaurant while staying in Monterosso. We chose it on the strength of a recommendation from Rick Steves. We ordered anchovies, a salad followed by sea bass. All the food was just okay. The quality was below what we sampled in several other restaurants in the Cinque Terre. Service was uninspired.

Great ambiance, food and service. My friend and I loved our dishes - gnocchi with aspargus and giant prawns. I don't think you can go wrong here.
