Although the sign says "Pizzeria" outside, the restaurant serves far more than just that dish. We had excellent seafood pasta, appetizers, and dessert. They walked around with limoncello as we were finishing. We always look for locals in a restaurant, and that Sunday night, local families far outnumbered the tourists. I'd make a reservation because it's a busy spot. We'd eaten at Miky the night before - and although its food was very good, this restaurant had more attentive servers and very authentic cooking.

It was like Fawlty Towers with Manuel run off his feet , however lost his cool. His one minute wait turned into 30 minutes. The food was great even tho slow to come . But to watch Manuel was worth the wait .went back twice and would go back again when next back in Monteresso.

Ate here by accident on our first night as we arrived late and were waiting to check into our room. What a delightful accident ! The local specialties of trofi pesto and baked anchovies were stunning and memorable, topped off by a local house red and a perfect panna cotta. Went back again for lunch and were turned away as they were bursting at the seams. When we did manage a return visit the gnocchi was lightest ever. Limoncello served complimentary with the account is a nice touch. Highly recommend.

La Barcaccia Ristorante - Pizzeria serves excellent Ligurian prepared dishes in generous portions with very friendly service from Manuel, all while giving you plenty of time to enjoy dinner conversation and multiple courses. Although it isn't one of the best meals we've EVER had, it is definitely one of the best meals and best dining experiences we've had for the money (we've eaten at some world class restaurants, including The French Laundry in Napa, CA). La Barcaccia will give you a true Italian dining experience as you rub shoulders with locals and tourists alike. They even have an ENTIRE GLUTEN FREE MENU with excellent choices.

Your meal starts with complimentary, local wine and ends with a round of their homemade limoncello. In between, enjoy some of the local preparations made from fish caught that day by the local fishermen, like the overflowing mussel dish. For a variety of dishes in nearly overwhelming portions, try their Menu Turistico, 3 courses of local preparations with primi options like spaghetti with shrimp and mussels or spaghetti bolognese, secondi options like grilled swordfish or pork, finishing with chocolate covered nuts and espresso. Of course all the meals come with local bread and breadsticks. For a real treat, top your meal off with their homemade tiramisu, the best we've had anywhere.

Give La Barcaccia a try if you want to enjoy a little of Monterosso's culture and cuisine without breaking the pocketbook. You'll be glad you did and, like us, you'll probably go back multiple times. It's the best combination of quality food, dining experience and value that we found during 6 days in Monterosso.

We had a great meal at La Barcaccia. It seemed to be the most popular spot on the street. The service may not be lightning fast as they seemed to only have one or two serves that night that spoke English. Others would only serve the Italians.
