The M.G. Bar became our home away from home. We would start each morning with caffe and croissants and end our day here with a glass of wine. A lovely little cafe/bar on a beautiful narrow street in the beautiful old town of Monterosso al Mare. The owner, Armando, always met us with a smile, as did the rest of... More

Nice cafe off the beaten track, good espresso, small but hearty selection of food, seating inside and outside, and wifi wahoo! The staff is also very sweet, with a real family owned feel (maybe it is family.owned!)
