Had a light but good meal of fresh pasta. Most pasta is freshly made with the exception of the spaghetti. There is a cover charge so be prepared to pay an extra 5 euro for your platting per person. Not all places do this but Stella certainly does.

Amazing food! Fresh seafood, right out out of the water and on to your plate. The best mussles I have ever eaten in my entire life!

Yes, it's a blast for your taste. Food is aaaamazing, I ordered fish ravioli 2 times in a row, too good. I'm Italian and it was my first time in Portofino, awesome place and lovely people. Super recommended

Wonderful food but a little crowded. However if you would like amazing spaghetti bologna see in portofino this is the place to go. It is very good. Menu a little pricey but worth it. I recommend sitting outside on the corner near the plaza. Better people watching. ...

The food itself was relatively good although mainstream, the table and restaurant in a good location, but nothing exceptional. Staff was ok although not over enthousiastic. The main trouble with this restaurant is the bang for the back of the food. Yes it is Portofino but... Add to that the 5euros per person cover charge and it is too much...... More

Very good food with a terrific view. I ate their Pesto pasta (local specialty) and my husband ordered the seafood pasta - both were very good. We also enjoyed a nice bottle of wine. Great location for people watching.

Tonight we went to Ristorante Stella for dinner. We both felt our dinner was good but wouldn't call it exceptional. I had a baked sea bass that was cooked very well, moist and tender, but it wasn't anything I would call outstanding. My husband had the fish soup and he said pretty much the same thing. Also, it was fairly... More
