Gourmet Food in Monterosso

This restaurant was a highlight of our trip to Monterosso. Michele and his family are really trying to do something great. We shared the Seafood Appetizer made up of 7 different delicious dishes for 20 euros. We loved it so much, we ordered again when we returned a second time. I had the pear and... read more

Quiet restaurant along a small street away from the normal foot traffic in town. We really enjoyed the pear and cheese filled pasta. Great food and service at reasonable prices.

We found Restorante Via Venti through Trip Advisor. There were so many excellent reviews (with many recommending the Pear & Cheese Ravioli), that we had to try it. All I can say is that no one was exagerating... it was outstanding. If you're in Monterosso, you must visit Via Venti... and definitely get the Pear & Cheese Ravioli!

Seafood ravioli was great. Family run & great care taken. May even return as we have one more night here. You know it is good if u go twice in Italy.

The food here was incredible. A little tough to find as its on a side street off of a side street but worth the search. The owner is incredibly friendly and entertaining. The pear and cheese pasta is amazing. Also highly recommend the via venti dessert. Be prepared for a long dinner as the service is slow. Go for a... More

We found this little place from a Rick Steve's guidebook recommendation and it was amazing! The food - one dish after the other - was perfection! Try the fresh anchovies that were just caught that day. If you come from America as we do, you will never have had any anchovy like it. They simply don't exist in U.S. And... More

My wife and I love trying new restaurants when we travel, so when I say that we went back to Via Venti and had an even better meal the second time around, it indicates how good the restaurant is and how interesting the menu is. The restaurant may not look like much and it doesn't boast a lot of outdoor... More

Don't think you won't need a reservation for this hidden in a side alley ristorante. We were lucky enough to slide in as one of the early diners without one. My wife had the cheese and pear pasta and I had the gnocchi with crab both based on TA recommendations. My only complaint was that the crab dish was the... More

Walking in we weren't sure if this was the place for us, but ultimately we loved it! Another customer shared that they were there for their second night in a row, we know why. The pear and cheese in pasta was amazing, as was the mixed seafood grill. I wish we had another night there so I could have tried... More

Wonderful, small family run restaurant with excellent food. Best we had in Cinque Terre. The cheese and pear pasta pockets are outstanding. The seafod/pasta dishes are also excellent.
