My husband & I were looking for a restaurant that had good food with a view in the Monterosso area. The only drawback for us is that we had quite a walk from our hotel to the pickup point where a van picks you up & takes you to the restaurant. But it was well worth it! The restaurant is way up in a hill outside Monterosso it has a great view of the town & the beach down below. The restaurant sitting is in an outdoor patio with romantic lighting. We ordered the fish special which was outstanding with yummy potatoes. It appears that it’s a family operation with the family being the cook, waiters, & the driver. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I thoroughly enjoyed the restaurant. It is up on the hill and quiet, and off the beaten track, which I personally value. There was a car service to take us to and from the restaurant, very convenient. It is not a fancy place, but the food is authentic and local. Reasonable wine selection and reasonably prices.

What a wonderful place. We took the Cinque Terre train from levanto to Monterosso and walked to a pick up point. The restaurant sent a van down to pick us up (and drove us back after eating). High up above Monterosso we ate outside with a to-die-for view of the water and town. Food and wine were equally impressive. Love this place.

Our B&B host highly recommended this place, and we were so glad to have taken his advice. Il Ciliegio is a gem of a place. You take a free shuttle up the mountain, sit on an outdoor terrace overlooking Monterosso, and eat delicious food! Our all adult family of 6 thought every dish was spectacular. Not your run-of-the-mill offerings either. For example, the grilled fish was fresh and fell off the bone. The trofie pasta with swordfish and lemon was mouth watering. Everything was done to perfection, and the service was attentive to boot. Highly recommend Il Ciliegio!!

Amazing location, high above Monterosso. Amazing food, too. We tried an assortment of things and one was more delicious than the other. We received excellent service. All in all a great meal and a great experience.
