“Do not miss it!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

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.

“True Italian Hospitality at its best!”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

Moreno and Sabrina welcomed our group (of 5) for 3 nights in a row. I have eaten at many places in the CT but this restaurant is my favorite on so many levels. Every night we would sit down and just say, bring us what you have made fresh today (and a bottle of wine of course), and every night was a winning dish. Best Fish Lasagna and Pesto Trofie in CT! The hosts were beyond fantastic and actually made the effort to get to know us. To top off the true Italian cooking and hospitality, the pricing was very reasonable. Don't expect fine dining, but do expect incredible food made by a passionate family and a relaxed atmosphere. Restaurant is very small, so call ahead for a table. Thank you Moreno and Sabrina for 3 fantastic evenings!

Also, if you are looking for a place to stay, their family also rents 2 rooms (nicely updated) for a reasonable price.

“Great food”
Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

As mentioned below, you come here for the food and it is worth a visit, enough said. Don't try it and you will here about it from everyone else.

“Excellent food, helpful staff great prices”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

If your looking for silver service go somewhere else. If you are after fabulous food with lots of choice, helpful staff that are happy to guide you through the menu and make suggestions this is the place. Informal and inexpensive where the staff laugh with you not at you. A must try.

“Delicious food and friendly service in a simple setting”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

As others have indicated, this is not fine dining, and it doesn't pretend to be. But if you're looking for a very tasty meal at a great price, or consider yourself as a "foodie",look no further. We enjoyed our first meal so much that we returned the following night to celebrate my wife's birthday instead of going to a "real" restaurant. The chef offered to cook us something special - and it was - a mixed seafood pasta par excellence. We will remember our eating experience here as much as any other.
