We greatly enjoyed our dinner here. It is located in a narrow street but easily located. We selected outdoor dining and had a very enjoyable evening. We would both recommend this restaurant.

We were recommended here by our guide book. Tucked at the back of a little lane in old town is this wonderful restaurant run by a husband and wife, and his father. It is small 40 seats inside and out so make reservations. The pecorino and pear pasta was absolutely fantastic. You are waited on by the husband and he... More

The ravioli with pear and cheese is amazing! The house label wine is great. One of the best meals we had in Italy.

We stumbled upon via venti as our original restaurant had been fully booked. I am so thankful for this as the food as service was great. The waiters joked with us and when the wine we selected was no available they suggested a magnificent wine which was actually cheaper than our original choice. For entree we had meats and bruschetta,... More

Restaurant was recommended by guests at hotel + signature dish. We asked for best dishes and we tried 2 out of 3 both excellent. Tagliatelle scampi with pesto Citroen sauce. Light but extremely flavorsome. Then piece de resistance pear & pecorino pasta in cheese sauce. Sounds weird but fantastic pear really works with pecorino cheese . Then followed by tiramisu... More

We had some great seafood - swordfish and king prawns - here. The service was good, excellent wine and a very special dessert selection.

Took the train from Rapallo to Monterosso without any specific plan other than to enjoy lunch. Whilst wandering around town happend on Via Venti in an area with many similar establishments. After looking at several menus decided to eat in Via Venti and what a good choice it proved to be. We chose a table inside to avoid the smokers... More

dropped in for dinner and really enjoyed the visit. Seafood risotto was very good if not exceptional, it's the raw fish starter that really was memorable. Red prawns was my personal favourite. House white is delicious (which is normal around here). Service ood, attentive but not annoying.

We've been following Rick's guide for our trip to Italy and this is the first time it's led us astray. And boy was this a fantastic failure. We arrived in Monterosso this afternoon so we missed lunch. We figured we'd snack a bit and have early dinner. We know Italians dine late so this could be an opportunity to dine... More

Stopped in here for lunch. Staff were very friendly and helpful. My wife had gnocchi with pesto and I had tagliatelle with wild mushrooms. The gnocchi was delicious. The pasta could have done with more mushrooms. Would come back because there were many attractive items on menu. Was recommended by Rick Steves and deservedly so.
