Had lunch here today and enjoyed stewed rabbit, sea bass and the house red wine was the best I've tasted the whole trip. Lovely setting in a real old italian old sea side town.

We had lunch here and loved it. My husband had the spaghetti vongolo and says it was the best he has had and I had spaghetti pesto which was also good. Visited by locals. The panna cotta was to die for and would definitely like to eat that again.

We stumbled upon this place when most places weren't open and had a great meal. The soup and veggies were great, along with the wine and service.

Recommended by the manager at my hotel, I dropped in early by Italian standards (19:30) for dinner. I was the first customer. The restaurant has two or three dining areas, one of which had a noisy TV, so I sat as far away from it as I could. The decor - a plethora of off whiteness - is very plain,... More

Went in for pizza but they no longer make pizza. We almost left but decided to stay. Had the spaghetti bolognese and minestrone...and a couple of glasses of the house red. Much better than expected-in fact, very good! The spaghetti was with wide noodles, cooked perfectly with enough meat sauce. The minestrone was like none I had ever had. Very... More

Suggestion by Giovanni at Locanda Il Maestale and not disappointed, so much so we will go back on our last night in Monterosso. We had the fried mixed seafood and the Fish Soup with bread, accompanied by a lively house bianco vino. All was great and the fish soup contained all sorts of shellfish to be eaten to leave a...

Had one of our last meals in Montrosso here, should have went earlier in the week so we could have eaten there another time it was that good. Staff were very helpful and didnt mind us ordering as we went taking our time. Enjoyed several courses of fantastic food and was a great value.

This restaurant had a lively atmosphere and excellent service. We shared a very nice salad and had a good pizza and pasta with seafood. Good house wine. It was enjoyable eating here.

The restaurant was relaxed, friendly, clean, and quiet with an amazing choice of dishes. We had two pizzas that were the best we've had in Italy. One was with pesto and one was with sausage and peppers. The crust was light. We were pleased to find a beer menu with local, Monterosso beers that are unavailable in the local stores.... More
