We ate here on our first night in Monterosso as it was recommended by the owner of our hotel. We both enjoyed the mixed fried seafood which was very tender with a great light batter and washed it down with a bottle of local wine.

Cozy restaurant, fresh pasta and fish, family run. Try this out if in Cinque Terre. Note that they do not accept credit cards. Diners in this area tend to eat on the earlier side (unlike other parts of Italy). Recommend getting there between 7 and...More
