Great focaccia and friendly staff. I got food here "da portar via" (to go) on two occasions after day hikes around Monterosso, quite satisfied both times. A great place to grab a mid-afternoon snack.

I am seriously confused by the positive reviews here. Perhaps ownership changed recently because this placed produced the worst pizza I've ever had in Italy and actually the entire world. Quite the feat. Decided to get some salad, and two different pizzas. Both pizzas were EXTREMELY salty. And I mean that definitively. I'd be hard pressed to even call that... More

We initially walked past this place as it is very small & was empty but after walking around the village we decided to go back & give it a go. We are glad we did. We had the Napoli & spicy salami pizzas. They were ready really quickly but the bases were well cooked, thin & crisp. Just how we... More

This one-man operation is friendly, and takes great care of us every time we visit. Emy makes delicious pizza and focaccia, and has tasty wine and a selection of beers, too. The prices are very low for what you get. He also has take-away if you wish! Do not miss this place, just as you enter the historical part of... More

We ate lunch here a few weeks ago. The pizza was good and the prices were reasonable especially given the large portions! The owner was clearly enjoying his music and singing along having a good time. We found him to be very friendly and entertaining! I would definitely eat here again.

We had a great lunch here. Food was all fresh and the owner - who was good fun, as well as charming - clearly takes great pride in his food. Highly recommended.

Had a good pizzia. The mushrooms were canned as indicated by a previous reviewer. However, the pizza was good, service was good, and the food was quick.

This place is small operation run by one guy Emiliano who does everything. He is very Italian and very hysterical. He's always playing music, dancing, and talking to the guests. He makes everything from fresh ingredients that day, no microwaves like many monterosso beach restaurants. Not only is the food authentic and delicious but it is also very affordable, less... More

The atmosphere of the restaurant just felt like we were eating a meal it Italy! They began with very yummy and fresh bread. I tried the ricotta and spinach ravioli with pesto sauce. You can tell that everything is made fresh here. I especially liked the pesto sauce, however the pizza wasn't very good. This is a nice place to... More
