A great dinner!!

Absolutely favaloso!! We're on a two week adventure across northern Italy and this was our best meal so far. Where to start? At the beginning, I suppose. Sautéed Anchovies were sublime. Followed by a dish that was described as the best pasta dish ever. It was a ravioli stuffed with pear and goat... read more

Went here as it was recommended to us by hotel. We ordered spaghetti with fish sauce and pasta with pesto. Servings were small for price. Service was comical. Food was average.

I had the seafood pasta and my sister had the pear and cheese pasta...both were delicious! Definitely recommend coming here. We might even come back a second time!

Just off the main thoroughfare in this small town, a small restaurant serving authentic local cuisine. The staff was incredibly welcoming and attentive. Expect to wait a little while for the food to hit the table because it's all homemade. It is worth the wait. We had the gnocchi with pesto (pesto is a local specialty) and the gnocchi with... More

I had dinner with my family at Via Venti. We had oysters, stuffed mussels and grilled mussels for starters, for our main we had trofie al pesto and king prawns with Colonnata lard; everything was great, tasty and the service was courteous. I would definitely go back

We went there for lunch because it was highly rated by TripAdvisor. We had pesto gnocchi, and spaghetti with clams.The food was average at best. I think this place is overrated and overpriced.

Nice restaurant in a convenient location in the town centre. The sea food salad was delicious and trofie with pesto nice too. We planned to go there for dinner but in the end did not have enough time in Monterosso.

We took the Super Cinque Terre boat tour from Rapallo and had 3 hours in Monterosso to relax and have lunch. After wandering around various streets/restaurants we decided on Via Venti. The other streets were very busy, so we were delighted to find a table in a quiet side street. We took the reviews on board and decided to try... More

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 and I did not like... 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!
