The salat was kind of boring, but the pasta was really good and spicy. The waitress was really nice and funny despite her being really busy. The menu was in English and the staff spoke very well English 🙌🏻

Every night, we stopped by this bar for drinks. It was great! Didn’t realize they had a full menu, but they do. Service was always great and they have a great selection for wine by the glass.

I ate here twice when in Monterosso. Beachside tables, good views and watch the crowds pass by. One night had pasta and salad, the next great seafood dish. It’s casual, relaxed and affordable dining with lots of good options. Very friendly customer service.

We called in here for a quick snack and were pleasantly surprised with the quality. It was yum. Coffee was good but not quite hot enough. Excellent value though at 10 euro for two good size sandwiches, a small cake and two latte's.

We had dinner at Bar Gio and were quite pleased. Portions were of a good size and very flavorful. House Wine was also very good and inexpensive. Service was fine, considering it was a busy rainy day. All in all it was a pleasant experience.

Arrived in montesorro after a long journey. Noticed this place was open for breakfast so headed there. From start to finish the waitress was incredibly rude and unwelcoming. We ordered the scrambled eggs and asked for no bacon and if we could have tomatoes. She...More

We enjoyed a late evening drink here and enjoyed sitting outside and watching the world go by. It’s in a great location with outdoor seating including on decking on the sea front. Staff were helpful and friendly too.

There is only 1 person working. We were waiting for more than 30 min and when I tried to look for an olive oil I got shouted at by the waitress. She ruined my whole experience in Monterroso

We stopped here for dinner after a long day exploring the Cinque Terre. We loved that it was along the water and we had a great view of the sunset, and the lights of the other towns across the water once the sun went down....More
