We were looking around for a great pizzeria in Monterosso and found Pizzeria La Smorfia. We looked through their extensive list of pizza and went with one (number 65) with mozzarella, pesto, pine nuts and basil and one with buffalo mozzarella, soft cheese and ham and lemon rind from local lemons and wow!! We ordered the normal size and it was perfect. For dessert we shared a Nutella and marscapone calzone and it was a great ending to a perfect meal. To top off the evening the service was excellent. Highly recommend this place

A small restaurant in Monterosso Old Town. Almost 100 different pizzas! The most difficult thing this evening was to choose...
They had many different vegetarian and vegan alternatives.
Good and friendly service.

This place had good service, but foodwise it was unfortunately a little dissapointment. Especially when pizzas are their especiality we would at least expected to have fresh mushrooms and other vegetables (and not from a can) as toppings, but however this was not the case. Somewhat overrated place in our opinion.

We came here for a quick lunch before our hike. That was probably a bad decision, because these pizzas are HUGE. Pretty tasty too. Highly recommend, just not before a hike :)

My husband and I stopped at this little gem for lunch during our hiking one afternoon in Cinque Terre. We were both sweaty and in our hiking gear, but we’re welcomed with open arms. This pizzeria was recommended by a lady at the train station.

We ordered the caprese salad (nothing great but good) and the pesto and margarita pizza. Both pizzas were VERY good, although the pesto pizza was our favorite of the two. We both agreed it was the best pizza of our 3 week pizza-filled honeymoon :) The dough is “soggier” in the middle with a crispy crust.

The only downside of this little gem were the flys (indoors and outdoors) although they were all over Cinque Terre and didn’t bother us too much.
