We went there for a dinner with pre-booked table and received a table with excellent view. The staff was attentive and friendly, but service was quite slow as only 2 people served on the terrace, but overall satisfying. Location can't be beat. The tasting menu was a right choice for us as we were not sure what to eat as it was difficult deciding, so has the chance to taste many great foods and struggled to finish all what was served.

We went here twice during our stay in Monterosso. First we had lunch outside. It was a little hot, but the view is wonderful and the food was amazing. I had scampi risotto for lunch, it was fresh and the texture was perfect.

We wanted to go for dinner the next day. We forgot to reserve a table, and had to sit inside. The interior is nice too, at least if you get a table by the window like we did, but I would recommend reserving a table outside.

For dinner I had the cod bacalao, the pork with Barolo sauce, and the lemon sorbet. Everything was really good and well presented.

We booked our last night at this lovely restaurant. As it was after 3 pm when we did this we only had inside seats available to us. This was not an issue as our table was at a window to enjoy the sea views and we were able to enjoy all the nautical decorations inside. The staff were friendly, helpful and attentive without being overbearing. The food was amazing!!! We loved this place set right into the headland and overlooking the waves breaking on the rocks. Highly recommend a visit here!

Had a very nice lunch outside overlooking the water at this restaurant. Food was fresh and well-prepared. The service was good despite having to run up from a downstairs kitchen. Most notable, however, was the view and the breeze, which were delightful.

We booked this restaurant a couple of days in advance and had a wonderful spot overlooking the sea. We booked for 7.30, so lots of time to make the most of the gorgeous scenery before sunset. We shared the hake in pesto for starters (big enough for two) then shared the turbot for main (intended for two) which came with potatoes and a tomato salad. Both were delicious! I had the ice cream and fruit for dessert whilst my boyfriend had tiramisu. I didn't want this meal to end! Quite pricey but definitely worth it, we went as a treat on our last night and it was worth every cent.
