We came here with the longing for real italian pasta. This restaurant absolutely fulfilled our wishes. The owner is very friendly and makes you feel at home. The bruschette were fresh and very good. The pasta with aubergine and the one with mushrooms were both al dente and tasty - also big portions. We also had a delicious tiramisù, fluffy... More

This place is great. It's hard to find and the door will be closed and the sign is hard to see - just ring the bell. The portions are big - so make sure you're hungry or plan on splitting a dish. You can also take what you can't eat home in a container. The owner is very nice and... More

Friendly service and delicious pasta dishes. You need to ring and order ahead for dishes like gnocchi. We've been to this restaurant a few times now and are never disappointed. Not the easiest place to find but persevere/ring for directions - it's worth the effort!

I don't really understand the reviews. First off, it took several attempts to find this place open. Then when we did find it open, the food was awful. The lasagna had hardly any sauce and the cheese was weird. Sorry, I really wanted to like this place, but I won't b back

I am a pasta lover, but the pasta at Monterosso is far beyond excellent!!! I'm getting hungry while I'm writing down this review, but you have to order pasta here. The restaurant is a little bit hidden (a hidden pearl) because it is not really a restaurant.. It has a few tables, but it's always fully packed.. You are dining... More

Be careful not to walk straight past this place. The food tastes just as good as in Italy! Amazing pastas (al dente!) and tiramisu and panna cotta. Call in advance if you want gnocchi, ravioli or risotto!

Perfect, if you want to eat pasta! It's a little bit hard to find, just watch out for house number 70 and press the bell. It's definitely worth it. We had pasta carbonara and lasagne and it was delicious. The portions are really big and service is very friendly! Tastes just like in Italy!!!

We went there intentionally, and by 7pm the place was all reserved, but the host sited us at the bar. It's a really home-like cosy place with the atmosphere. The food was really delicious (we had pastas), and especially - the dessert. It was the best pannacotta in my life, and tiramisu portion was just enormous (after the fair portion... More

Over all we enjoyed our meal here. The restaurant is basically the front room of a house but it's really nicely done and the place had a great atmosphere (we were here mid week and it was full by about 8). We started with the brushed ta which was tasty. My lasagne was very good but my wife's cannelloni was... More
