We stopped for a lunch and it was delicious. We had their home made pasta: pansotti alla salsa di noci, gnocchi di patate al pesto. The food was just fantastic, the seaside view as well.

We recently sat down at a table at Il Gabbiano Ristorante... this alone cost each of us a 2.50 Euro cover. The location is what drew us in. It was nice to sit outside on the boardwalk on a beautiful evening in Monterosso al Mare....More

Overpriced for what you get. Small meals and nothing special. Main course was more like a starter, we weren't full at all after the meal. Furthermore they charge you 5 euro for service, napkins, table and dry bread you didn't even asked for.

The food is good. We ate fish dishes. It is located exactly on sea shore. Prices are on average for the restaurant position.
