We went here twice in three days for lunch - tasty food (pasta and salads for us), and nice people (run by the daughters of Guiseppe who runs the boat rental next door) but a wonderful quiet location at water level looking across the activity of the harbour. It's not cheap here, including the oft-mentioned 5 Euro cover charge, but... More

We had lunch at this restaurant on Friday 12th September. We both ordered pansotti in salsa dolce which is a typical dish from Liguria. The pansotti are more like ravioli but what my husband and I got was a plate of tortellini. Probably the staff didn't realise that we know what the difference is between tortellini and panosotti - very... More

Was recommended this restaurant by our hotel. Unfortunately it was a disappointment. Although the food was good, the service was not. Nothing overt but not very attentive or friendly. The table next to is received much better service. They were also tourists but had an Italian guide with them. Not sure if that made the difference. The worst part was... More

The Restaurant is located directly at the water. We had a delicious fish dish, a bottle of lovely local white wine and Tiramisu. The meal was excellent. Unfortunatelly was the staff quite snobbish and arrogant which makes me a bit sad, as the Chef does a fantastic Job in the kitchen...

Food here was actually ok, overpriced though for what it was. I'm not opposed to spending money but over 120€ for 2 mains and a bottle of wine. And we weren't exactly full afterwards. Service was non existent, got practically ignored, got no bread but still had to pay the €5 cover charge for it, each! The location was spot... More

The food and wine here were very good, as was the location right off the water. A bonus was discovering that the owners sell excellent olive oil that they produce themselves, as well as other food products

Short and sweet. Incredible fritto misto (mixed fried fresh seafood) containing prawns, anchovies, calamari, etc....Delish house white wine (vermentino) was a perfect pairing. My wife had veal scallopini with an incredible buerre blanc sauce. Sitting outside by the cove of Portofino is heaven on Earth. Look no further for your go to lunch spot.
