I had a very nice relaxed lunch at this restaurant on a dull and rainy August day whilst doing a day trip to the Cinque Terre. I opted for a simple pasta dish which was done very well. The more exotic dishes coming out of the kitchen looked absolutely fantastic - everything was very fresh and customers seemed very happy.... More

You should definitely come here and order one of the risottos on the menu'. Minimum order is 2 portions, but pay attention... the portion are really XXL, so don't be surprised if the price is slightly higher than the rest of the first courses. Consider having 2 portions of it for 3 people, unless you are really starving to death.... More

We are in Monterosso and decided to go full fledge seafood dinner for today. We don't really know how to order seafood here. I was used to Asian style where you go point at the fish, crab or lobster that you wanna have. So I did the same. The staff was helpful and patient despite communication difficulties. Finally I got... More

We stopped off at this restaurant during a cinque terra walking tour. We were a large group and surprisingly treated with no manners at all. The staff treated us as if we were inconveniencing them even though they made a lot of money off our group. We were served a green mixed salad and a pesto pasta. The pesto pasta... More

We had the spaghetti lobster and it was amazing. I rated this restaurant as excellent based on the food however the service is not the greatest and it was one of the expensive restaurants on the strip. It was still worth it and I would recommend it. Make sure you have a reservation so that you can sit outside.

We had the most delicious seafood risotto here. The seafood was plentiful, the risotto perfectly done. I would definitely recommend this spot.

We shared a meal of paella here, and both of us loved it. The food was great and the service was very friendly. We were waited on immediately - which was not the case in most of the places we ate in Italy - and everyone was so nice and helpful. Highly recommended.

In past visits, we did not have the easiest time finding places with gluten-free options in the Cinque Terre, but now that so many people have adopted the diet, I guess the options have expanded. The great news is that the options have expanded at this restaurant, where we had a seafood risotto of dreams. The sauce was made with... More

We came here every night for dinner for five days and a few days for lunch. The fish, particularly the fritto misto and linguine alla vongole, were the best we have ever experienced. The chef is a true artist; he is a master craftsman and every meal and dish was delicious. This restaurant has the most amazing pesto, homemade and... More
