Best meal in Italy so far

Fantastic location, great service, Very helpful wait staff My whole family of 4 absolutely loved their meal I had the special lobster ravioli, wife had the special fish my two boys had the seafood risotto and left begging for the recipe. This is a place not to be missed!

We stayed for dinner and both food and wine were great and although everywhere was very busy, we were not rushed at all. The food is delicious, the staff is nice and the view is perfect! The mussels antipasto is excellent!!

On arrival in Portofino at lunchtime by ferry we immediately asked for a table in 30 minutes time. The waiter showed us an occupied table but said it was hours in 30 minutes. After a short walk around the harbour we returned at the appointed time and the table was laid and waiting for us without any delay. We expected... More

Not cheap but not overpriced, amazing venue and superb staff, the Russian lady needs to learn to smile but perhaps she's in the wrong job. Great table, excellent value wine, very good food. I'd certainly say book it. We turned up an hour early and were greeted warmly, why wouldn't he as it freed up a later booking but it's... More

Alhough the food was nice it was nothing special. The view o the harbour was good but they charge a €5 service fee per person which makes the cheaper menu prices irrelevant.

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
