We were only in Monterosso for three days, so even though Gastronomia San Martino got rave reviews, I didn't think I wanted to waste one night at a "takeout" restaurant. But on our last night, after one bad and one mediocre meal, we decided to avoid the risk of another spendy disappointment. We got takeout from Gastronomia San Martino and had the best food of our stay.Try the trofie with pesto. Perfectly cooked pasta with a sauce both creamy and fresh tasting. And piping hot.
Don't wait until your last day. You WILL want to go back.
