Great spot for dinner!

Sat down at a front table around 6:30 for apertivi. Nice location right on the water and great view of the yacht parking lot. Place was almost empty at the time so the waiter was very attentive and helpful. Had pro secco then decided to stay for dinner. Super accommodating and great food... read more

One of the best Portofino restaurants, both in terms of location and quality. Rather expensive, but it is worth. Baked Genoese style fish, mixed grilled fish platter and seafood spaghetti are advisable. Do not try the pesto lasagna here.

The waiter was extremely rude. He treated me very badly when ever I asked something. We couldnt sit there I was upset and annoyed. I've never treated like this before in a restaurant. My husband was very upset too. I highly NOT recommend. We had a very bad experience first time in portofino.

Found this restaurant using the TA app whilst on a day trip to Portofino last weekend. Fabulous location in the port (see photo), food was great, waiters speak good english and are very attentive. They gave us an amazing table - grazie!

I booked a table for the Saturday night with less than a week to go. I asked for a table by the water and while they couldn't guarantee it they actually made it happen. The service is very good and the food is amazing. Lovely location although it's on the quay so you have people strolling a few feet away,... More

Bad service, very slow , small portions- big surprises when it comes to the menu Make sure you don't ask for lasagna what you get is very different from what you would expect Skip it

We organized here my boyfriend's birthday. We were around 20 people. The staff was extremely polite and available before and during the dinner. The service was flawless and the food very good. I will surely come back!

We excitedly booked this restaurant having read great reviews and given it is ranked #2 in Portofino on Trip Advisor - unfortunately we were neither here nor there about it. The service was nice and friendly, no complaints there and the location is purely magnificent! However the food was where it fell short, the pasta's we had and shared were... More
