Great pizza in a locals environment

We felt like we were experiencing life in small-town Italy when we walked into the restaurant. The hostess invited us to sit out on the terrace, protected from the weather by a plastic screen, where a group of locals were finishing up their lunch. The hostess/server was very helpful as we pondered... read more

Terrible service stuck out the back because locals playing pool and cards in the main area. The waitress had no idea and took forever to bring a water. Food very ordinary and pricey. Once again an unannounced cover charge for non existence service. Had a pizza which was very ordinary with next to no toppings.

We ate at this restaurant several times whilst in Monterosso al Mare. The bread was made in-house and it was just fabulous, fluffy, soft inside with a great crust. Dipping into oil and vinegar just enhanced the flavour and it was the best eating bread that we had during our entire holiday after having eaten in Venice, Florence and Siena.... More

We chose this by default as the last chance saloon at the end of a long hot walk to the far end of the promenade to get to the public beach. Sat out on the balcony enjoying the shade. I wasn't expecting much, but my pasta al limone with sea bass was astonishingly good! We found that service was friendly,... More

Dined here for lunch on a hot day. Service patchy, but when when our meals did arrive, excellent quality & reasonably priced. Nice view. Toilets exceptionally clean.

We were missing eggs for breakfast and reluctantly stopped in here this morning. Should have followed our instincts and stuck with pastry and cappuccino down the street, which are amazing by the way. The entire experience was a disaster. The waitress kept bringing the wrong food, the place was swarming with flies, and it was without a doubt the worst... More

For a restaurant in such a prime and tourist-frequented location in the middle of a very busy and boiling-hot day, we found the food to be very good and the room wonderfully air-conditioned. We got the trofie (traditional ligurian pasta) al pesto, which was delightful. Trofie is a bit unusual and consists of small, somewhat cylindrical pieces of pasta, each... More

We ordered an appetizer of octopus and potato, which was mediocre. For lunch, we had a mixture of fried fish. Our entree was fresh and decent. Unfortunately, the service was so horrendous that it dismissed any quality found in the food. The waitress ignored us on several occasions, and we had to ask for our bread and our menus. We... More

We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. We were on a tour and had a set menu of pasta, fish, salad, and unlimited wine. The food was really good and the service was friendly and accommodating. We would recommend this place when visiting Cinque Terre.
