“Great place to shop for local stuff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Even though i was really looking for a great gelato place in cinque terre, i tried their limone granita when i passed by their shop, because it looked so appetizing :) good thing i did, because i wasn't disappointed by its refreshingly strong flavor :) i also bought their pesto & pasta for bringing home, which the shopkeepers were gracious enough to package nicely :)

“A little bit disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2012

We went to this bar based on the reviews on Tripadvisor. The staff is very kind, however sometimes they just disappeared in the shop and could not be seen on the terrace for a long time. Coffee is good. Although they promise you a free wi-fi, only the first 20 minutes is free. It is not correct, especially in Monterosso, where it is almost impossible to find free wi-fi.

“Great place for snack, drinks and local products”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

This is the second year I have enjoyed myself at La Cantina del Pescatore. Veronica and Simone will do their best to serve you a made-to-order snack or light lunch, plus they offer a variety of wines and apperitivos. Nothing is pre-made, which is why it is so delicious! You can start your day with a cup of delicious cappuccino and a pastry; go for lunch; an after-hiking/swiming snack or pre-dinner snack. Whatever cocktail you are in the mood for can be whipped up for you! Try the Aperol Spritz (my favorite). The granita is a thirst quenching, refreshing drink any time of day; not to mention the large variety of wines and locally made limencello.

“Must-try Granita”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012

We returned several times to this great place. Their home made granita with lemons from Monterosso is the best one I ever tasted.

The owners are also very kind and their shop is filled with local food and wines. They speak Italian, English and French.

Make sure you try their granita while visiting Monterosso
