We look forward to seeing you at Restaurant L’Ancora della Tortuga, opened in 2007 by Silvia and Giovanni Battista «Giamba», two Monterossini DOC. Set on one of the most beautiful cliffs overlooking the sea, and where the sea breeze will caress your skin. You will be welcomed in an elegant maritime-style dining room. Which has been conceived in such a way as to reveal the original living rock of the San Cristoforo hill.Outside on the small square, our dehor overlooks the breathtaking sea and its sounds.
The restaurant brings you Ligurian tradition, its scents and flavours, and the wonderful landscape offered by the cliffs of Monterosso al Mare. The restaurant offers two types of menu: the first for traditional dishes. With starters, first courses, second courses, bread, followed by sorbet, desserts. Our second is the à la carte menu where you can choose what to try, leaving you transported from the marina atmosphere around you. The cuisine always follows the course of the seasons, changing daily whilst respecting nature and ancient tradition.
Sample the specialties prepared by the restaurant, cooked with fresh local fish, from the local market. Try our seafood, the typical cappon magro, spaghettini with anchovies, risotto with shrimps, basil, and toasted pine nuts. Or cod, fish soup with cabbage and garlic bruschetta. Do not miss the meat specialties, prepared passionately in the kitchen. Try the pork with apple in Chianti with spinach in butter or duck breast à l’orange.
To finish, try one of our home-made desserts prepared with local ingredients. Choose tiramisù with strawberries, sorbet with Monterosso lemons. Or Swiss roll with bitter chocolate cream. Accompany it all with a great wine from our cellar! There are local, regional, national, and bubbly such as the Franciacorta for desserts and the famous Sciacchetrà, Champagne and Prosecco.
