Family-run by a young and passionate couple, she is the server and he the chef. I love Michela's attention to the decor--she has excellent taste and uses local artisans work to decorate this small, cosy space. Our favorite dishes are the Spaghetti Frutti diMare which they make the best we've ever had. Pesce Spada alle Ligurie (swordfish in an amazing... More

My husband and I were on a full-day Cinque Terre tour and Monterossa was our stop during lunchtime. The guide had recommended several restaurants but these were crowded and offered outdoor seating only. On this day -- 10/22/16 -- it had rained most of the day and the temperature was on the cool side. I wanted to warm up, so... More

Having eaten a number of seafood liguini and spaghetti dishes in different places around Monterosso we had to return to this place as it was easily the best. On both visits the food was excellent and consistent and we enjoyed the atmosphere and service which was without fault. We found the staff attentive and eager to please. Maybe a charming... More

This place was recommended to us by a local. There are tables outdoors but they were reserved. In the end, I think we were better inside as it was air conditioned. Plus, a wind came up and really blew hard on the people on the terrace. We had a seafood spaggetti. It was very good, with plump mussels, clams and... More

There were 7 of us for dinner. We sat outside and the first thing I noticed were the tiny little ants on the table. Our guide brought it to the attention of the server and we thought she was going to do something about it but apparently not. Our guide just squished them all with her fingers but that immediately...

Pretty good pesto trofie, tuna, but mussels rather bland. Service very hurried - waiters run around with not much effect. I'd say the place is overpriced; and remember that they don't take cards. Oh, and strangely enough the place had lots more flies inside that any other Monterosso restaurant we visited (and we've been to many)

Something has happened here since the rave reviews. In particular, the waitress was impolite to the point of being hostile, snatching plates off tables on the run. While numerous patrons sat at empty tables, she took time out to fraternise with four or five gentleman callers. When I asked why we were still waiting for our food when the people... More

Waitress' attitude was one of the worst I've ever seen... Was just about to leave just when the cups were filled with wine. Food is just "x", average, don't worth it for the price you pay. I would not recommend this place for any single reason to any traveler.

While on a cruise with our daughter and her family, we had a stop in the cinque Terra. Monterosso was the place designated for time enough for lunch.
