Pozzo is the Italian for the well. We all thought the waitress said the whale! (La Balena in Italian - the pub round the corner is La Balena Blu). And apparently down in the basement is an old well. Great seafood salad. I might go so far as to say the best Insalata Di Mare I have ever had. Octopus,... More

We also had delicious food at Ristorante Alta Marea. Numerous choices in the town specializing in seafood but excellent pasta is available everywhere.

This restaurant was able to take a family of 8 without a reservation. I know it was lucky for us, but it turned out to be a great dinner on short notice. The staff was very nice and courteous. My meal of Spaghetti with Clams in Lemon was grand!! Don't miss this one.

Firstly, do not go out on a weekend to Monterosso and expect to walk in somewhere decent without a reservation. Travelling with my partner, we made this mistake and spent about 40 minutes walking around Monterosso willing to eat at any restaurant that would take us. Finally to our relief Al Pozzo seated us at a far back table and... More

it is hard to go wrong in Monterosso when it comes to seafood. Al Pozzo has an amazing assortment of fresh offerings and a great wine list of local vintages. Try the Chia, made right nearby. Make a reservation but you can still squeeze in even on the busiest of nights.

We ate there fo lunch and we wanted outdoor seating to watch the locals and the multitude of tourists go by. The service was good even though a little slow because they were busy and because everything is cooked fresh.We shared a seafood antipasto, we had the local pasta al pesto and an octopus dish. Everything was delicious, with a... More

This little intense street restaurant offers great fish dishes. There is a cover charge and the degree of comfort is what you might expect eating on the covered payment. We enjoyed linguini lemon prawn. Its expensive but this is a prime tourist route. The toilets were bad and not kept clean.
