Lovely location, fantastic home cooked pasta and great hosts. I had the owners suggestion of his wife's home cooked ravioli stuffed with sea bass and my wife had the prawn and asparagus gnocchi.... Both dishes were amazing ! Highly Reccomended...

The pear and pecorino pasta was hands down the best pasta I've ever had. I still dream of it. The atmosphere is ok and not the star of the show, but the food speaks for its self.

Another couple at the hotel recommended this restaurant. The seafood was outstanding as were the other menu items. Our waiter recommended an excellent wine. A definite must in Monterosso.

Having read the reviews, my wife and I decided to give this place a try. It was very easy to find from the square of the old town of Monterosso. Definitely off the beaten track and no crowds and noisy tourists. Very personalised service. Great explanation of every dish that was served. The restaurant is family owned and run. Guaranteed...

We greatly enjoyed our dinner here. It is located in a narrow street but easily located. We selected outdoor dining and had a very enjoyable evening. We would both recommend this restaurant.

We were recommended here by our guide book. Tucked at the back of a little lane in old town is this wonderful restaurant run by a husband and wife, and his father. It is small 40 seats inside and out so make reservations. The pecorino and pear pasta was absolutely fantastic. You are waited on by the husband and he... More

The ravioli with pear and cheese is amazing! The house label wine is great. One of the best meals we had in Italy.

The waiters joked with us and when the wine we selected was no available they suggested a magnificent wine which was actually cheaper than our original choice. For entree we had meats and bruschetta,... More

We had some great seafood - swordfish and king prawns - here. The service was good, excellent wine and a very special dessert selection.
