Delicious selection of foccacia and pizza, along with some fresh desserts. We had the onion; zucchini and goat cheese; and margherita varieties. All amazing, the zucchini was our favorite! A few tables to eat outside. Good value and good food!

We visited this place 3 years ago and loved it. We came back again this September and loved it just as much. We've eaten focaccia bread all over the Cinque Terre (both this year and the last time we were here) and this is our favorite spot. Delicious!

We stopped by Il Massimo for a quick lunch in Montorosso. Although the line was long it moved quickly and we were even able to grab one of their two tables. The focaccia sandwiches were fresh, tasty, and reasonably priced!

We rented lounge chairs for the day and of course forgot to bring water or food by 2pm we went venturing. Their focaccia sandwiches were delicious and reasonable we had limited choice because of the late hour so go before 1 to have a choice. The sandwich was very reasonably priced and good size and their drink were cold!

We were looking for a quick bite to eat prior to starting the blue trail and this was just out of the station. Thinking we had walked into a tourist trap, I was pleasantly surprised with the flavours and quality of the food. I got the focaccia with potato on it and my partner had salad focaccia sandwich and both... More

Had lunch from here several times during our stay in Monterosso (would have been several + 1 if they weren't closed on a Wednesday). The tuna salad foccaccia sandwiches are delicious, as is the spinach pie, and the little omelettes with onion and ricotta. The chocolate beignets are also rather scrumptious. Lots of options for vegetarians (even proper ones who... More

We had potato basil pizza and some focaccia. They were both a 5 star, the most delicious focaccia and pizza we have ever tasted in any country of the world and it was our breakfast! My family is full of good cooks so I wrote down the ingredients so I can attempt to create it at home but it will... More

Bought focaccia on the run and it was the best I ever tasted. We went back the next day to grab some focaccia for the train ride when we left town. I choose the onion focaccia, it was moist and full of flavor. I highly recommend you stop by and try their breads.

Strong fluffy foccacia with crunchy sides with ligurian pesto spread on top of it. Only 2.50€ for a big slice of it - worth a try for sure!

This location is at the train station, just under the main terminal area, at the entrance. They've got quiche-like focaccia, sandwiches, focaccia pizzas, and desserts. It's really just a "to-go" stand, but there are benches in front. Very affordable, on the go food. Best focaccia in Monterosso.
