“Outstanding in Every Way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

In addition to the high rating on TA, our hotel recommended Miky's as the best restaurant in Monterosso. Based on that, we made a reservation for dinner and concur with the high marks given by others. It is probably the best dining experienc we had in our two plus weeks in Italy.

Almost everything about this restaurant is outstanding. The decor and atmosphere are very pleasing and welcoming. Service is over the top in attentiveness and all of the staff seem to work together, on que without any fuss. There is always someone to attend to all of your needs. The menu is large in Italian dishes with great variety. All of our dishes were excellent both in flavor and presentation. The waitstaff seem to take pleasure in delivering meals to the table with great flare.

Prices are relatively high but in my estimation, certainly worth it for a special night out.

“Miky rules in Monterosso!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

People, there's no doubt about it - Miky rules the food scene in Monterosso! The evening before we enjoyed great seafood at Miky's Cantina, then on the Saturday it was my partner's birthday and we had an excellent dining experience in Ristorante Miky! Again, we hadn't asked for a recommendation, but used our "antenna" to suss out what looked to be the best fish restaurant in Monterosso, based on style/presentation and menu. My partner found his way to Miky's almost at once and for safety's sake booked a table for the following evening. When we arrived we were seated at a nice table and almost at once the waitress came with bread, oil and water, together with two glasses of prosecco, compliments of the house! Later as other people arrived after us, we saw more complimentary glasses being served, this was a nice touch we've not observed anywhere else. The waiters were all smartly dressed and very professional. We had a white fish mousse with capers and a lovely sauce for starters, just like velvet! Wherever we are, my partner always prefers 'local produce' and ordered a bottle of local white wine that was one of the best I can remember tasting for a long time. The main dish was a share for two, local fish with olives prepared the Ligurian way, served with slightly roasted potato slices with pine nuts. The waitress prepared and served the fish at our table, removing all bones etc. and arranging attractively on the plates. This fish was absolutely delicious, several times during the meal my partner commented that you can't get fish/seafood like this in Milano (where he lives) but then he was also including Miky's Cantina, where we had been the evening before. For dessert we shared a tiramisu, mmm. And believe it or not, while we were enjoying this the waitress arrived with yet two more glasses of complementary wine, dessert wine this time plus some small sweet cakes. The dining experience we had at Ristorante Miky certainly contributed to making this birthday a memorable one!

“If you like fish this is the place to eat!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

We had a terrific lunch at this restaurant today while touring the Cinque Terre area. The fish of the day with salt crust was spectacular, and the fried calamari was exceptionlly fresh and light. One person in our party who is not crazy about fish did not have many options but reported an ok meal, the ones that love fish totally loved the meal.

“Outstanding”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

Miky served us the best meal we ate during our 2 week stay in Italy.
The best seafood we've ever had and we live in Florida!

You need reservations for dinner, but lunch is just as tasty. (we first dined for lunch then went back for dinner!)
