Omelettes and a brew before heading around the town, perfect and friendly. Well worth a look round the shop too. Perfect hidden gem

We stopped by for some late afternoon snacks after arriving around 3pm. Most other places were already closed as they prepared dinner, and we were enticed by the frozen lemonade machines out front. We ordered a small meat and cheese platter (more than enough to feed 4 people), a salad with fresh tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, and pesto Genovese, and their... More

We recently visited Monterosso and were exploring the village. This hidden gem is tucked away, but as we sat outside and sipped our wine, a steady clientele came and went. Although we stated we wouldn't be staying for a meal, we were still served nibblies...a very generous offer. We noticed a lemon "slushy" machine at the doorway, you could either... More

My husband and I wanted a light lunch to go; we stopped in and spoke with the wonderful chef here. She made us one with pesto; another with chicken and olives. They were so delicious we went back the next day. Staff is fun and generous.

This is a great wine bar. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the wines they sell and serve. It is a smaller place and gives you the feeling of calling around to a friends for a wine. Definitely make time to call in

Enter this storefront and you will find amazing service, food and wine! It is a great place to grab lunch (and I imagine dinner would be quite nice too)! My husband and I wandered in here while strolling through the town. We started off with a wonderful glass of white wine local to the area. Then, my husband and I... More

Stopped in here to buy a bottle of local wine. The man working had so much information on the wines, it was great, I was hoping to go to a local winery but they were shut this time of year so I really enjoyed the knowledge he shared with us. Walked out with a few bottles of wine and pesto.... More

There's limited seating available, so get there early. The seafood marinara pasta was good. The seats are outside the restaurant against the wall. They don't open on one of the weekdays so plan accordingly. I remember it being one of the cheaper eats.

Thank TrulyAudrey
