Nice location. Good cuisine. Polite people. But expansive. But it worth to spend them there. Fish is very fresh.

Certainly the location is idilic and the fact that we were in Italy meant that food was bound to be good. Why 3 stars? Simple, the waiter. We went in in a group of 12, I understand that for the kitchen, this is a lot of work when the restaurant is full... it wasn't. So why was the waiter trying... More

Stella - not Puny, not Delfino - was the perfect choice for our last meal in Portofino. We were greeted warmly, given our choice of tables, a welcome glass of prosecco, and received great recommendations from a server who provided us with the very best service we had anywhere in Italy. The spaghetti alla puppo was outstanding, as were our... More

Perfect restaurant overlooking the bay. The best steak I've ever had, lovely wine recommendation and top quality service from the waiter.

We visited Portofino during the second week of May. After exploring the marina, and walking way up the main street into the hills, we stopped here for a late lunch. We had seen a recommendation in Rick Steeves' book so decided to give it a shot. Certainly very scenic on the waterfront, we both settled on the Risotto Stella (many... More

We had dinner in this restaurant. Service was overall friendly but haphazard. Food was as expected in a tourist restaurant. View on the harbor is nice - but unfortunately the sun sets on the other side of the harbor (in May) so Stella gets darker and colder quicker than restaurants on the other side such as Gemelli.

Walking in the Portofino area during daytime we saw this very nice looking-located restaurant but later decided to eat earlier than they opened for dinner. But, after a nice dinner elsewhere we returned to the Ristorante Stella for a glass of Italian Chardonnay wine. The very friendly waiter recommended, Vie Di Romans, from Veneto, the northeastern region of Italy. Wow,... More

Only one of two restaurants recommended by our hotel staff--I Gemelli was the other. They steered us right. Fabulous location on Portofino's postcard perfect harbor. We went without reservations on a Saturday night--big mistake--but one of the waiters told us to come back in 20 minutes and he'd have a table for us--amongst all the reserved tables. He delivered.
