Tried the margherita focaccia just before going into the train station. Was delicious and surprisingly filling. I'd say it was reasonably priced, not as cheap as a slice of pizza back home, but the quality was great. They have a little patio out front for...More

This was the best focaccia we found in town. It’s a tiny little place with counter service and a few benches out front. The sun beats down so you may want to take it on a picnic in the shade if you can. They offer...More

Tried the olive focaccia and the Margherita focaccia. Really nice, highly recommend. The olive focaccia has just enough olives. The focaccia is crunchy but soft inside

Can't find this stuff in Emilia Romagna. Well worth eating Focaccia here! You have a variety of flavours to choose from. I had chosen the typical Genovese pesto Pizza. Light fluffy digestible pastry with fresh toppings. Go for it!

We were craving a salad and stumbled upon this great cafe. Service was great, big simple but delicious salad and fabulous focaccia. Their focaccia are lovely and soft with a huge selection of different toppings. We will come back during our stay in Monterosso.

This is by far the best focaccia ever!! We bought two every morning of our 4 days in Monterosso! The patate and the margerita were the best!! So fluffy and easy to eat! Great for a mid-morning or early lunch snack.

Grabbed a slice of focaccia with tomatoes, arugula, and cheese, and it made the perfect car lunch on my way out of town. Delightfully salty, fairly cheap for Cinque Terre, and filling! Portions are nice and big here.

I don't think they do, but they may have risotto (rice) based pies there sometimes.

This location is at the train station, just under the main terminal area, at the entrance. They've got quiche-like focaccia, sandwiches, focaccia pizzas, and desserts. It's really just a "to-go" stand, but there are benches in front. Very affordable, on the go food. Best focaccia in Monterosso.
