The restaurant is down a narrow street and has a wonderful feel. We were there on a very busy day however that did not affect service or quality of food. I had the spaghetti with seafood - a beautifully balaced dish with a range of seafood..really good. The serice staff were very busy but were attentive and friendly. Excellent for... More

Very good atmosphere good Italian food. Spaghetti was ok. We shared the seafood anti past which was not as good as other meals we had in the area. No seasoning to speak of, we had to ask for pepper and salt. Very bland & boring. The whole dining experience was helped by good service. The restuarant had been recommended to... More

Fish based menu is delicious - tuna in sesame seeds, pressed squid with green sauce, very enjoyable. Didn't like much the mixed fried seafood selection - mostly prawns, very little fish. Apple tart was surprisingly good.

We ate here since we didn't make reservations at the preferred places. We had the meat and seafood ravioli. Both were good. Nothing to make a point to come back and eat. Service was friendly.

The food was very disappointing but we had feared the worst as is was one of the only restaurants in Monterosso that could find a table for us that evening. The waitress was pleasant/helpful but the lingering feeling is that this was a poor choice.

The food was great - some of the best we have eaten in Italy and the service was the best. Friendly atmosphere and a nice cosy place to have a great meal.

We had been staying in Monterosso for a few days and this place was about 20 meters from our apartment door. Each time we walked past we could smell the aromas coming from a variety of foods and also saw people seemly enjoying their meal. Decided this would be where we would eat on our final night and we weren't... More

We came as a party of six adults and three children....and we were comfortably seated and warmly welcomed. We had a variety of dishes including a seafood soup, pastas, risotto, and salads. All were tasty and plentiful. The only partially negative comment was the seafood soup. It is prepared with five different types of local fish. Some of the fish... More
