We did not have a lunch reservation and just decided the find whatever we could when we arrived in Portofino. Our first reaction to this spot was that we were walking into a tourist trap, because the location is so obviously perfect. We were shocked to find that the service was prompt but respectful, the food was very good and... More

Had a quick lunch of fried calamari, a glass of wine and 750ml bottle of water. 40€. That includes the 5€ cover charge. That seems a little high to me. It wasn't the best meal I've had in my life but probably the most expensive on a per gram basis.

Not to be missed in portfolio. The seafood platter (Frito misto) is out of this world! Wonderful service and they made our dinner very special.

Interesting food, had raw local prawns to start as recommended by waiter, a tad scary but totally delicious, especially the heads, very sweet and wonderfully succulent. Don't remember much else, or walking back to Splendido so must have been a good night, again.

Ristorante Stella is well located, in front of Portofino's harbour. It has this green look that attracts you but is full of tourists and not italians of course... Which makes it a real tourist trap. I'm kind of surprised to read so many nice reviews as the food looked like industrial (go to chuflay to understand what's real home made... More

Very nice location, near by harbor, quiet and clean restaurant. We tried ravioli with sea-bass fish. It was amazing. Very tender and delicious.

Amazing location. Waitress was "away", not paying attention to requests. Food was good. I had risotto - made by my taste.

We chose this restaurant based on the reviews on tripadvisor and it was amazing! We arrived with no reservation. Fabriz greeted us warmly. Like everyone we wanted a table in front. We waited about 10 minutes and none were available so we accepted a different table. A few minutes later a prime table opened and he moved us immediately!!! The... More

I normally don't write reviews but after my experience at this lovely seaside restaurant I knew I couldn't keep the magic to myself. I came here recently with my best friend to celebrate her birthday and am very happy that I did. Ristorante Stella is a gorgeous restaurant with subtle decadence and true Italian charm. After a warm welcome and... More
