This restaurant situated in one of the narrow lanes in the old town was a wonderful find. The quality of their food was superb and we noticed that they restricted inflow of customers so that the service was always good for the customers which they had.

Unusually, that night we ate steak and pasta and both were superb. However all the dishes we saw being served looked superb and we were not the only diners to comment on how much we enjoyed the meal.

Very good food and service and great location to watch the locals and travelers. We would recommend the Buranco white wine from the local winery. Do not pass up dessert as the tiramisu was wonderful!

In such a touristy location, I was pleasantly surprised to find Via Venti. I've seen people complaining about the portion sizes, but they are on par with what I expect from non-touristy Italian dining.
The waiter was very helpful with his recommendations and they do have a few good vegetarian options.
I can't speak to any of the seafood dishes, but the pear and cheese pasta sachets were lovely and so was the dessert recommended by my waiter- it was sort of a cake-pie hybrid with a thin layer of fruit jelly (maybe apricot), a soft vanilla cake, and chocolate topping.

Compared to the food we had at other places in Monterosso, this was average overall. One stand out dish was the lemon pesto which was excellent.

We rolled up a little early (630) for dinner yet the gentleman at the front was more than accommodating. We did ask for a cocktail that was not on the menu and they were happy to make it for us - bonus.
The food - we shared anchovies and truffle pasta for starters. The anchovies were warm and delicious and the pasta was to die for. We both had steak, rare and it melted in your mouth. Dessert and dessert wine were lovely, but not blow your mind, but the whole service and food was and amazing experience, I'd recommend to anyone. The place is a little out of the way, but find it!!
We had a Colli Di Luni Vermentino as a white wine (similar to a chardonnay) as per recommendation from the restaurant and it was spot on.
The outside tables were great - we left at around 9pm when it started to get busy. I'd recommend getting there early before the rush to ensure you're given amazing service and attention.
The bill was over 100 Euro but I would do it again.
