Don't let the low food prices fool you. Your bill will be high!

This is one of the first restaurants as you get off the ferry and looks inviting. It has a good view, as do nearly all Portofino restaurants. Prices looked good too. We ordered lasagne pesto (11Euros), another pasta pesto with shrimp (16Euros), and a caprese salad (10Euros), water, and three Aperol... read more

We had a lovely dinner here tonight, sadly it was spoiled by the excessive "Coperto" which is a cover charge. For 3 of us it was €15 (last night we paid €4.50 for the 3 of us). Also a glass of lemonade was €6. I wouldn't go back again

Great food, great ambiance, great service. The only downside was the size of the portions, which were rated too little among many members of our group of 7. Then again, if you're going to do it the Italian way and order all courses, it would be an expensive but very satisfying experience.

Stopped for lunch at this beautiful location in Portofino and sat on the patio watching the boats come and go. The food was good, a bit more expensive than other restaurants, but I guess you have to pay more for the location.

The rain came down and it was a roll of the dice, Ristorante Stella or some of the neighbouring ones. We went with the busiest of the bunch which was Stella and it paid off. With a table at the front we had unspoilt views of harbour and the surrounding towns such as Santa Margherita. Service was good, with the... More

Briefly, it's not quite an authentic Italian cuisine restaurant, mainly a restaurant that relies on tourists. Lasagna was awful and price was extremely high for such value.

My wife, our two kids and I set there for dinner after reviewing the menu outside. We had 4 pasta plates and were shocked to receive a check with 145€!. By far the most expensive dinner we had around here. Turns out the drinks are priced like diamonds....we felt so cheated. Food and service were reasonable.

Saturday night in Portofino requires a reservation if you don't want to be disappointed or you don't want to trawl the streets to se where there is a free table. We were very lucky to get a table on a Saturday night after a 30-40 minute wait. Mussels and fish in citrus juice for starters and a seafood ravioli which... More

Fearsome looking billionaire battleships are moored alongside this high end establishment, with prices to match. The service is swift and professional. Stella has to be one of the finest fish restaurants. located in one the most amazing places on earth.

We were driving home and wanted to visit Portofino for lunch. Examined various restaurants all set around the harbour, but as it was getting late settled on this one. Ordered mussels x 2 and 2 glasses of wine, plus 1/2 bottle of water. 2 simple desserts. Mussels were good, although not a large portion, as was the wine.Expensive at 78... More
