Focacceria Il Frantoio, Monterosso al Mare

1 Via Vincenzo Gioberti
Monterosso al Mare
Italy 19016
Tel: 39 01 8781 8333's insider take:

Focaccia, the less doughy Genoese form of pizza, is the staple local snack. Just about every village has a bakery or focacceria where you can buy slabs of the stuff with various toppings, but this Monterosso takeaway establishment, on a side street just off the main drag, is one of the best. Top toppings include tomato and pesto or anchovies and capers, and the turnover is so rapid that you'll generally be eating it fresh out of the oven. They also do a couple of other specialties, like torta di riso salato (a rice, egg, and cheese bake) and, in winter and early spring, a knockout castagnaccio (classic Ligurian chestnut-flour pizza with pine nuts and golden raisins).

Open daily 9 am to 1 pm and 4 to 8 pm.

I would have to say your on the money with this one. They must have had 7 different types of foccacia and it was amazing how something so simple can be so good. more
