After a morning walking the coastal footpath this was the very first restaurant we came past in Monterosso. A waiter was enticing people to eat - something which we take as a bad sign - but we turned back as the outdoor tables had a lovely view and nice linen cloths and napkins.
The staff were helpful and friendly, the view fantastic and the sea food pasta well above average in quality and portion size. Despite no carafe wine on the list it was provided without question and the bill with 1 litre of wine was Euro 55.
Good value and good quality. Note. By 12:45pm it was full.

My friends and I spent 6 wonderful days in Monterosso and dined at Il Casello on our last two nights in town. The first night we tried the sea bass, seafood spaghetti and the fish ravioli with shrimp and zucchini and enjoyed the house red wine. Each dish was delicious and presented beautifully, however, the fish ravioli turned out to be the favorite for each of us. In fact, on our return trip, we all had the ravioli even though many other menu items looked great, it was just that good. I highly recommend a seat under the big yellow umbrellas with a fantastic meal and stunning view.

We were walking by and decided to get a bite to eat. You can't beat the view they have! The service was great and the food was delicious! If you are in Monterosso this is a must!

We were staying in Riomaggiore and rode the ferry to Monterosso to spend the afternoon on the beach. Not knowing anything about possible places to eat, we wandered up the hill past a few other restaurants to this one, sat under an umbrella overlooking the beach, and I was served the most delicious seafood ravioli! My husband had a seafood salad and was also impressed. Perfect meal and reasonably priced for lunch!
