Amazing setting and beautiful food, what more could you ask for! We started with some tasting plates, a little fried squid, some octopus and some of the famous Salumi Di Tonno - tuna pate. Beautiful. The specialty of the house is parpadelle with tomato sauce which we ordered it was perfect. Great choice of wines. Highly recommend restaurant Puny.

Great location right on the waterfront and popular with locals, who all know the owner. Make reservations well ahead of time to get a good table placement. The food was very good, but not the best meal in town. It a great place to people-watch. And dress up - this is the place to be seen!

Managed to book a table for Saturday night. Mr Puney met us as we walked in. What a character. A very funny man. The food was incredible and the staff amazing. It made our stay in Portofino very special. A must if you are visiting Portofino. We tried to get a table the next night but it was fully booked.... More

Puny is a classic in portofino and be prepared for great food however the ambience could be better. While the other restaurants have lighted suited to dining on the square, puny has bright lights that are not so inviting to a relaxing evening. However, if the bright lights are okay for you and you are good with expensive prices for... More

Great food but no atmosphere. Overhead lighting very obtrusive, requires some table candlelight to make it more attractive and welcoming. Waiter was very entertaining and friendly, very knowledgeable about the menu on offer.

If you are travelling to Portofino and if you are staying at Splendido, this restaurant is a part of the "package ". Located in the famous Piazzetta, is a tradition of Portofino. Food is good, service friendly enough. Outside is nice for dinner even if table are too close as the space is limited.

Having got to Portofino at last, we needed somewhere special for lunch. Go no further than this place, the pasta with the special sauce was wow.

We sat down to have lunch. The food was ok, and the location is good if you like to watch passbyers and be right in the middle of everything. Not romantic nor private.
