Went as recommended but nothing great. Had potatoe/Rosemary focaccia that was ok but a little pricey and very salty.

Highly recommended for a quick lunch or snack in Monterroso. Would highly recommend the rosemary and potato focaccia, but really, they were all pretty fantastic!

The foccaccia here is AMAZING. The food tastes great and the pastries taste fresh. Like in most if not all shops in Italy the orange juice freshly squeezed is to die for. Excellent location as it is super close to the beach.

I had the potatoe Focaccia and my husband had the Prosciutto ham for breakfast. Large portions so you could probable share. Half decent coffee and delicious fresh orange juice. One of the things I hate more than anything is sitting down at a table with...More

We were in Monterosso five years ago and enjoyed this focaccia, and literally for the past five years have been dreaming about how yummy it was. So we were thrilled on our trip back this year, that it was still as delicious as we remembered....More

Great lunchtime spot that is very affordable. The focaccia is tasty and quick and authentic and the drinks are reasonably priced.

We were looking for a quick lunch of focaccio on the beach and looked at all the options. We decided to try Il Massimo based on the way it looked and were not disappointed. Enjoy!

I don't think they do, but they may have risotto (rice) based pies there sometimes.

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.
