Where to eat Northern-Italian food in Monterosso al Mare: The Best Restaurants and Bars

October 3, 2019 Malia Yoakum

Discover Restaurants offering the best Northern-Italian food in Monterosso al Mare, Liguria, Italy. The last of the five villages along the Cinque Terre strip, Monterosso al Mare is the most visited, largely because it has the only sizable sand beach and the biggest hotels. Though it can get very crowded with tourists during the peak summer months, Monterosso is still delightful. The old town area, separated from the more modern resort area by the Aurora tower, is home to the ruins of a medieval castle and San Francesco church, which houses an important Van Dyck painting of the crucifixion.

Piadiamo Vernazza

Typical Italian artisan Piadineria. We create Piadine at the moment from the dough to the cooking with fresh ingredients typical of Italian cuisine. Our ingredients all come from Italian producers: flour stone-grounded from organic grains (auto-certificat

Great choice of piadinas.. cooked fresh to order.. fast, friendly service, thank you :) Bummer about all the stairs you need to climb to get there, but if you are heading up to see the view from the castle anyway, you MUST stop there for a piadina :)

L'Osteria

Tipico locale ligure a gestione familiare a trenta metri dal mare, esperienza decennale, piatti tipici della tradizione ligure cucinati con semplicita e passione!

Reviewed By LesleyT226

My husband and I visited L’Osteria this week and were very impressed by the food! We shared a gorgeous pasta dish with clams and courgette. The best I’ve tasted anywhere. I had the baked sea bass with vegetables and potatoes - so fresh, absolutely superb! My husband had an excellent filet steak in pepper sauce - came with some rocket. He likes his steaks rare and this was cooked to perfection! We finished with homemade desserts of pana cotta and tiramisu, both which were very good. The bottle of local wine at 18 euros was very pleasant. Why not a 5? Well, the service was a little disjointed. We had to ask to see the dessert menu after waiting 20mins. We weren’t offered coffee so gave up. Asked for the bill which didn’t come so went to till and paid. They were very busy both inside and out so I sympathise with the staff. However, a bit of tightening up wouldn’t come amiss.

We had read about Miky before we traveled to Monterosso al Mare in several different food books, etc. Our meals of monkfish with broccoli and scallops with mushrooms were very tasty. The beer and wine were refreshing on a very warm day, the waiter kindly brought ice for our water too.

Really delicious focaccia and cheese filled fry bread. I would eat this every single day! We also ate the chickpea flatbread which was very good. A must if you are in Monterosso.

Da Eraldo

Reviewed By kelownatraveller

They have improved again since last year and we really enjoyed every meal we had here. The pastas are all amazing, the fish dishes and seafood appies are outstanding, and the prices are very reasonable. Reservations recommended, especially if you want to sit outside, and you can make them online. The final shoutout is for the little bread pucks that are unique to here (haven’t seen them elsewhere in the CT).

Reviewed By DTailer

Each day, after exploring Cinque Terre, we would end up at this small Cantina to have brushetta and wine before going to dinner. It is a quaint wine shop that gives you exceptional service. Their house wine and bottled wines were very good and very reasonably priced. If you do order a bottle, they prepare some complementary snacks to eat with your wine. They also have a selection of different bruschetta that you can order. This was one of our favorite places to hang out in Monterosso.

Booked solid on a busy, beautiful Saturday night, but the host and family member accommodated us with one of the best tables on the upstairs terrace. Our second time here over the years, and it’s only gotten better. I can’t imagine a better restaurant in all of Liguria!

Reviewed By amyz_world

We arrived in Monterosso on Sunday - this place is closed on Sunday and Mondays so we came on Tuesday evening about 7:30pm. There was a table inside the small restaurant that we were able to nab. The food is home-made. We both had the lasagne and it was only €9. The food came quickly. No reservations, just go and hope you get a table. You won’t be disappointed!

The location is central and by the harbour which is nice. The food is okay, but you are paying more for the location than for its quality. Bathroom could have been nicer.
