From the exceptional table to exceptional service to a wonder full owner I cannot say enough. You must try the pappardelle with the pesto tomato sauce, sublime!! The owner has been there for 72 years, he is special and it reflects in his restaurant. I would return to Portofino just so I could dine here agian

We regularly plan short trips to Italy with 2 friends, always choosing places for their cuisine. On a weekend in July we dined at Restaurant Puny (having booked well in advance) which certainly did not disappoint. We ditched the menu and ordered our waiter's recommendations of the house specials of the day. Everyone of us was delighted with our choices... More

We ate at this restaurant on our trip to Italy. We booked it from London and when we arrived there we had the best table at the front overlooking the harbour. What can I say. Wonderful food. Extra friendly staff. Exquisite, and while there they must have turned away 30 diners who had not booked. Would return tomorrow if I... More

Food overpriced and nothing special...service dreadful, the waiter actually removed my partners starter plate whilst I was still eating! The owner wanders around looking extremely superior and selecting who he chooses to chat with...Italians only it appears! The view is the same from every restaurant in the area...the only reason this place appears exclusive is because they only have about... More

Ok, so you are in Portofino but without a movie star and you have to find yourself a place to eat because you're hungry and you end up there because of the location. Splendid. The staff is really (really) nice. The waiter gave me a very good piece of advice about the wine. The food is extraordinary expensive, all the... More

Had a fantastic and an unforgetable meal here! The Papardelle pasta was like nothing I have tried before and the owner fussed around making sure that everyone was happy. You can't come to Portofino and not eat here!

Puny is Portofino. No other restaurant achieve the perfection of the food and the perfection of the service. Puny is a man with no compromise: either he likes you or he doesn't like you. You can be the King of Spain (often having dinner there) you can be Madonna (several time there) you can be Margaret of England, you can... More
