We picked this place in "old town" part of Monterosso as we wandered around (there are many spots similar all around each other - we glance at the dishes people are eating, take a look at the menu and see what looks good). This was the winner that night and we had a good meal. The seafood risotto was very... More

Our host recommended this restaurant and we got the last table. We ordered grilled swordfish and a local pasta dish with seafood. Both were delicious and beautifully presented.

We found this restaurant by walking through a tunnel from our hotel & we were not disappointed. The seafood was excellent, not that expensive, and the staff very friendly.

From the greeting of our friendly waiter, our dining experience was pleasurable. All four of us enjoyed our fresh meals. Service was good.

Excellent food, great service, we enjoyed our meal and would return. My husband had a swordfish pasta that outshined all the others on our trip.

We both had seafood/pasta dishes. One was with linguini, the other with spaghetti. One was 14 euro, the other 18 euro if I remember correctly. There was also a 3 or 4 euro cover charge which we weren't thrilled about. That aside, thus was the best lunch we ate during our time in Italy. Tons of shellfish in the shell... More

With so many restaurants to choose from, I'd skip this one. It took more time to remove the heads and shells from my seafood than it took to eat. Taste was just fair as well as the service. prices were a bit higher than those around it. Once was enough for me.

We went here for dinner and it was just okay. The pasta with shrimp was hilarious as the shrimp took more effort to take the meager amount of meat out than it was worth......in comparison to other local restaurants, this is a miss. The service was ok but not particularly friendly. The location is good and very central but there... More

You don't have to expect a wonderful restaurant for locals in a tourist town like Moterosso... but if you compare with others this could be a good option. Try the Griliata di Crosta or the Muscoli marinara.... They are simple dishes but they are probably the best options in August (and all the fish was fresh!).

I'm reading the reviews here and am a bit surprised by some of the negative ones. Here is why. We checked a few other restaurants in town that were full and ended up here. Maybe we missed the tourist times because we ate a bit later - more on Italian time. We were seated next to an Italian family -... More
