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.

We ate here because the outdoor seating looked pleasant. The special of gnocchi was shrimp tasted fine but had very few shrimp, and the pizza was indifferent. Nothing bad, but nothing very good, either. The service was impersonal.

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.

Very fast and delicious little restaurant. Too many Italians were there when we went. Toilets are very clean. But wi-fi isn't free :(
