Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We tried to have lunch and the town it was not extremely crowded... we waited for 20 minutes with an unacceptable lack of courtesy of the waitress and we escaped ... the food was apparently normal with high price.

I was amazed by the quality of the food, definitely one of the best places for sea food I have been to.

They want to make it fancy but this address is a real tourist catcher. Food isn't bad but the bill is. You can find better

Slightly rude staff, though given it's busy, possibly slightly stressed staff who are unsure what they're doing? Long wait for average quality food. Staff seemed to become happier as the evening progressed! Would not hurry back…

The atmosphere in this restaurant is not nice at all and the staff is pretty rude.We all had spaghetti Bolognese - the portions were very small. The spaghetti were very very al dente and there were nearly no meat in the sauce.

Found this place because I walked by during the afternoon and saw the chef making fresh pasta through an open window to the kitchen. Then later that night returning from dinner elsewhere with my wife we saw them cooking all the meals for the dinner guests that evening. Fabulous fresh seafood on ice at the prep stations and dazzling activity... More

The overall bill came in at 130 euros for the four of us, and the whole experience was... More

Lunch at this restaurant was really fun. We had wonderful fresh fish, a great salad and terrific local wine. Very nice staff. A leisurely meal watching the people go by and just enjoying the atmosphere of being in the city, especially since the area was quite quiet for being in a major tourist area.

As a couple we were surprised to be seated between 2 families with noisy kids despite plenty of other tables available. Service was unfriendly lazy and smug. Wine was given without offering the opportunity to taste it and check it was correct. the food was average and I've eaten better for less elsewhere in monterosso. starter of anchovies 3 ways...

We enjoyed this restaurant so much we ate there both nights we were in Monterosso. The service was impeccable and the food was delicious. The first night we had freshly grilled fish and scampi, with salad, beautiful and lovely presented. the second night we shared the seafood risotto, freshly cooked and served with lots of seafood and plenty for the...
