We ate at Il Monterosso with a large tour group and had a great visit. It is a very narrow winding road full of switchbacks to get to the top of the mountain and the farm and restaurant. We were greeted with farm animals and a friendly staff. We toured the farm and then sat down outside for some nice... More

Even if it was for being on a busy day, I would not serve such dull food to any of my guest. The menue was disappointing, lack of spice, salt, finesse. Go there for a apertivo and eat down in Pallanza. Beware of the difficult road, we actually walked up through the beautiful forest!

We were in the region for Valentine's Day and looking for a good place for dinner. Someone on Chowhound recommended Il Monterosso and we followed up on the suggestion. And - wow, what an evening we had! The restaurant is part of an agriturismo (Italian B&B with an agricultural setting), so as is typical everything is honest, rustic, produced inhouse... More
