We thought we'd have a "small" lunch. That wasn't possible at Al Pozzo. I ordered the fritto miso, which was big enough for three people and moderately priced. The best part was the squid....the most perfect squid I have ever eaten. However, the sardines, anchovies, and prawns were also delicious; and the plate included a large scampi and chunks of...

Incredible risotto with seafood, bruschetta with pesto and tomatoes and great branzino (white fish). Lovely, kind service. Good local wine. The risotto for 2 people was huge. We ate outside and watched all the tourists and locals walk up and down our street on a lovely sunny day. Great experience

While in the area we ate here twice. The fritto misto di mare was incredible as well as the mixed fish grill. I was a welcome meal after several hours at the beach. Would definitely eat here again. Try the lobster, it was phenomenal.

We ate here for dinner while in Monterosso and enjoyed the local fresh sardines immensely. The local white wine from Cinque Terre was superb! Loved the restaurant and loved the place!

My boyfriend and I stayed in Monterosso for a night in December. For dinner, we just walked around until we found an open restaurant that had people inside - since a lot of restaurants are closed during the winter months since tourism is lower. The staff in here were very friendly and we were seated promptly. There were a decent... More

We went at lunch as a group of 10 to this cute little restaurant with outside seating. The service was slow, and the delivery quite uneven. Some of our group did not receive their meals or first course even until others had finished eating. The shrimp lemon rissoto was to die for. The home made minestrone soup was wonderful. The...

We ate here twice when we were in Monterosso. The seafood was excellent: mussels steamed in white wine and garlic, risotto with seafood, antipasto misti al mare, spaghetti vongole (clams)...all wonderful. Great service and suggestions. We ate outside once and inside once. The inside is charming with rustic decor.

Can't say enough about this restaurant! Recommended to us by a tour guide which always makes us suspicious. But this was spot on! (Which proved itself out when as we left we saw a bunch of local guides eating there too). The seafood salad was fresh and tasty and well prepared. The fughi risotto was to die for - came... More
