We were very pleased to come across this small restaurant/shop in our first hour of arriving in Monterosso -- a good start to our holiday. Service was good, polite and friendly. The bruschetta was fresh, tasty and good value for money. The wine was also good. We sat outside and observed the locals, this is a good relaxed location from which to do that. Overall, this is the kind of place that you'll want to do well, want to give your money to in return for enjoyable food. We didn't get chance to come back (it was closed the evenings we tried), which was a shame, but it would definitely be on our list should we ever return to Monterosso. Recommended.

Admittedly, we stopped in here due to an emergency: we needed a phone. The generous proprietor, Simon, lent us his with no questions asked. When we decided to stick around for wine and a snack, we found the wine to be really lovely, at a reasonable price and the cookies to be quite tasty. Simon was attentive and kind, and we ended up chatting with him for a few hours! We bought the wine we drank and a few other items and he gave us a canvas tote bag for free.

We enjoyed it so much, we stopped by the next day for coffee and were delighted to meet his girlfriend, and co-proprietor, Veronica. The espresso was quite expertly pulled, the cappuccino had perfect froth and the foccacia was light and savory. Additionally, each time we were here the bill was incredibly small!

We cannot recommend it enough, not just for the cheap drinks and food, but for the perfect staff and service!

There's a happy restaurant behind the front shop. We came here based on trip advisor reviews and had a terrific lunch with house wine, the shrimp salad plate, and anchovies - a great start to an afternoon sunning on the lovely beach.

We visited this great wine bar for a pre dinner drink which turned into "Drinks" . Great service and helpful staff , each wine we tried was accompanied by some small nibbles, only regret was that we only found the place on our last night. Its a must visit wine bar when in Monterosso. A great selection of wine with helpful recommendations
