DO NOT EAT HERE. I made an account just to warn people about this restaurant. On arrival, I was greeted and brought to a secluded dark corner, away from all other guests. I waved it off but became suspicious of the quality after being given gluten free bread that I can only describe as a mix of cardboard and sawdust. It was strangely chewy and I am not one to judge as I’ve eaten my fair share of bad gluten free bread. Later on, we ordered two dishes one of which was a seafood pasta. Flies were buzzing over it as they brought it out. It smelled very questionable and after taking one small bite, I could tell none of it was fresh and would potentially give me salmonella. Not only does this place have bad gluten free food but it poses an overall risk for your safety. Do NOT eat here, don’t make the mistake I did. Not to mention, 2 dishes, one appetizer, and water was 90 euros.

I was a little cautious to try this one out based on some not so friendly service reviews. I’m glad we did! Pasta and risotto options for me - it was bloody delicious! Kids were happy, place was more fancy than I was expecting. Dragged non coeliac family members along with me who all thoroughly enjoyed their meals too.

Fairly disappointing experience after reading such positive previous reviews. Normally I’m not one to nitpick on service, but this was by far the worst service we have had since we arrived in Italy a week ago. While the GF pasta itself was great for GF and they had several GF options available, I ordered the GF pasta with salmon and was given a shrimp and cream sauce pasta instead. When they brought my plate I kindly said I had actually ordered the salmon and our waitress said no you didn’t and showed me on the electronic tab that the button selected was for shrimp. Luckily I like shrimp and didn’t mind but was somewhat shocked to be told what I ordered (when in fact I didn’t and I even pointed at the salmon on the menu in case of a language barrier to be clear). Frankly I felt a little distrustful of my pasta being GF after this experience, so will see if I get sick later. Looking around at tables with other wait staff, I think our experience was mostly very poor service by our waitress and not the restaurant itself but personally wouldn’t go back if dining here again, especially since we didn’t even get napkins (or non GF complimentary bread for my husband despite asking for them). There are definitely better options offering GF in Monterosso with much better service! (Da Eraldo, L’Ancora etc)

When we went to make a reservation, we told them I have Celiac and they didn't even hesitate. The person who took our reservation told me that there was plenty for me to eat. When we got there later that night, they had gluten free bruschetta and gluten free bread as a starter and I ordered gluten free pesto pasta for my entree. Everything was amazing!

So nice, we ate there twice! GF items were not marked, but the server was knowledgeable. When I told her celiac, she replied that I am in the right place, and and she took good care of me both times. It seems like most things could be made GF, except there was only 1 dessert option. I had pesto pasta one night and steak the other. Got the capresse appetizer both nights. There was GF bread on the 2nd night. She told me that they sometimes have it, and other times do not. Overall, I definitely recommend eating here.

Extremely knowledgeable waitress. GF pasta was perfectly cooked and the sauce was divine (tomatoes, truffle cream, capers, olives) with a light delicate flavor. I got GF bread with mine - 2nd time after a week plus in Italy to get bread so I could sop up all that amazing sauce.
