While the service was not the best, the food absolutely made up for it! I started with the steamed mussels which came in a huge portion (definitely shareable) and a perfectly seasoned broth. My wife had the Ligurian Minestrone Soup which she still says is one of the best soups she had ever had. We both had the Trofie Pasta with Pesto for dinner which we both agreed was the best pasta we had during our whole Italy trip. A very great find in Monterosso. Will definitely visit again on our next trip.

This was without a doubt the best meal I had while in Italy. We shared the steamed mussels; and it's a good thing. We stopped counting after 80. After that came the fish ravioli. It was simply delicious! I know you are supposed to have more than two courses in Italian restaurants; but it was impossible to eat more. Anna seated us as we ate early and there were no wait staff present. She is the wife of the Chef and owner Marco so she has a vested interest; and she was quite gracious. Her English was as impeccable as the meal. Not to be missed if you want a truly delicious meal. The price was quite reasonable which was another plus. The location is much quieter than other restaurants in town as it is about two blocks from the beach; but it is well worth the short stroll. It is open for lunch and dinner except on Wednesdays. There is outdoor seating which is quite pleasant.

Great find just down the street from our hotel.

The outdoor seating area was comfy and the service was nice and friendly.

We started by sharing an octopus salad which was perfect. Lovely fresh octopus cooked just right with a light, tangy dressing.

My wife had a ravioli with walnut sauce which was new to us. The sauce was light and creamy with a delicate flavour of walnut, good change from the regular ragu or tomato sauces.

My grilled squids were fresh and tasty and cooked to perfection with a slightly charred exterior

Spicy salami app. simply delicious! Pesto and tomatoes gnocchi absolutely divine. Spaghetti with anchovies and capers so tasty. Half litter house wine completed it all. Service was excellent. A must go.
