The interior is cool and the food was great. The entrees are brought out in terra cotta bowls, so the presentation is amazing. We ordered the antipasti misto because we were told to get it, but were disappointed by the quantity and quality of the...More

We loved Ristorante Ciak so much, we ate here 3x during our recent stay in Monterosso. The pesto gnocchi and seafood ravioli were both incredible and the portions large. Alek was wonderful. Highly recommend!

Just left this dining 'experience'. It started with leaving us, and others, standing outside waiting for someone to even talk to us. Then sent upstairs for a table. Only one waitress upstairs and she did not want to help us from the beginning. Took forever...More

Hello Hillgator, I was your waitress that evening and am quite shocked to see this review. I took your order no more than 10 minutes after you arrived and I treated you with the same courtesy and respect that I give all of my customers....More
