We stayed at the hotel attached (Green Quiet) and instead of driving down to monterosso we decided to try the Trattoria. Proved to be very nice!. Delicious, freshly made food, very good service (although the food was a bit delayed to come), at reasonable prices. Recommended!

What a fantastic restaurant up in the hills. Stopped for lunch and had the ravioli in bolognese sauce and fries. Simple dish but the nicest we have had in our travels in Italy. Very friendly waiter and nice quiet surroundings. Try this place when your in the area.

My wife and I had two meals here, everything was absolutely perfect! The food is super fresh, the service is friendly and attentive, and the surroundings are quiet. Will miss this restaurant a lot! Go if you're in the area! You won't regret.

This is the perfect restaurant for tired walkers. Great seafood. We loved the mussles! And the spaghetti with mixed seafood. The waiter is really friendly and genuine. Thanks for great meals. Only note is that they're closed on mondays.

We revisited this restaurant 2 nights in a row as the first night was so good. The waiter is part owner. He has a fantastic sense of humour and provided excellent service with delicious food. We had such a good time and would thoroughly recommend this restaurant - 5 stars in Cinque Terre 😊

The food here is sensational and the waiter/restauranter was brilliant. If you want to get out of the hustle and bustle of Monterosso, have a meal here.

What a fabulous night we have just had at this restaurant! It is right next door to the B&B we are staying so thought we would try it for dinner... What a great surprise! The waiter was a real highlight and made sure we had an excellent night. Mussels on the seafood antipasto were absolutely amazing and all the pastas... More

A nice place, where fish is really fresh, very relaxing close to the mountains but not so far from the seaside. Owners are young: they work in the kitchen but at the same time they take care of your needs.
