Delicious dinner! I got the gluten free spaghetti with pesto and it was fantastic. Although gf options are relatively limited here, I was able to explain that I have celiac (having a celiac restaurant card in Italian helped!) and the waiter was able to point out what was gluten free. The food was yummy and safe, and our waiter brought out some gluten free bread too, which was nice! Just be sure to get a reservation, and you’ll be good to go!

Good food, abysmal service. We stood waiting 15 minutes for them to acknowledge us for a table (open tables were available), then another 15 to be handed menus. From there things got better. No GF bread or crackers were offered, and when we asked, we were told no. The menu isn't marked but it does say spaghetti dishes can be made GF. We inquired about the risotto and were told that that's rice. If you are pretty GF sensitive, I would not recommend this place - unless you speak fluent Italian and can communicate with them better than we did.

This was THE BEST gluten-free meal I’ve had in Italy up to this point. I highly suggest ordering the seafood pasta- good quality gf spaghetti served with mussels, shrimp, and langostino in a deliciously fresh crushed tomato sauce. It was served in the traditional large blackened pot.

We ate here for lunch and dinner while we were in Monterosso for a day. They gave me GF crackers as substitute for the bread in Olive Oil. I ate the spaghetti with pesto and the second time I ate spaghetti with marinara sauce and meat. It was wonderful!

Delicious GF pasta (corn based) and crackers. Others in my group loved the paella and many seafood options.

They seemed to have many options for gf pasta, but give enough time for preparation or call ahead. Unfortunately we were on a cruise tour with limited time on a busy day and could not partake. they were very busy from multuple tours in town and sincerely apologizes for the crazy time and slow service. I believe it would be worth the time, just make sure you go on a slow tourist day or have time to enjoy.

Lunch in Monterosso at Al Pozzo Ristorante was a divine treat. The menu featured a trio of seafood salads, bruschetta on toasted focaccia and pesto pasta. With a bursting smile, "Mama" prepared my meal using sourdough-like gluten-free bread for the bruschetta and Probios Corn Spaghetti for the pasta. Upon me licking my plate clean, she grabbed my hand and pulled me down a windy staircase to show me her supply of gluten-free goodies in the pantry.
