Higher prices and smaller portions

You will not be disappointed in the quality of the food served here, but over the past 5 years portions hv seemed to shrink and prices increase. The seating is quite limited so perhaps that is what drives these levers. Pastas are amazing as is the quality of fish served. Service is excellent ---

Having had O Magazin recommended by friends who have a little place in Portofino, we went on our first evening, and then went back 3 more times! The location, right on the marina of Portofino, is casual and rustic, with the water sometimes lapping up and onto the sidewalk! The food, from pasta to salt-baked fish was wonderful. I am... More

Get here and forget about the other tourist-trap restaurant in Portofino. The quality is very good as well as the freshness of the seafood. Maybe they use a bit too much oil in the meals but it isn't a major problem. It's a bit expensive, but you are in Portofino, you can't expect to pay little money.

Went to this restaurant, for dinner with the family, liked the dinner and the service, the pasta was good but pasta is pasta , the fish was exceptionally nice. The pricing is on the very high side.

For the most part, none of the restaurants in portfolio distinguish themselves from each other. They have pretty good food. They offer outdoor seating with amazing views of the picturesque harbor & village. The menus have fresh caught local fish, a pesto dish, a few pasta dishes and a couple meat dishes. Service is hectic. Depending on what you order... More

We wanted to have a good dinner on the outdoor terrace overlooking the harbour. Reading the menu asked twice if the octopus and the calamri were fresh. The emphatic answer was "Of course". We asked if they had half litter bottles of red wine, which were not shown in the wine list. The answer was; We have a Tognatello from... More

We came for dinner. It took so long to get a waiter's attention. At the end, when we wanted to leave, we had to go up to them to give them our credit card to spring them into action. I'm sure there are better restaurants in Portofino.

Lives up to all expectations; great food, nice wines, and the most courteous people serving. Remarkable was also the way in which shellfish is served. Well thought through. Will be back.

A good location next to the port. Quiet and peaceful. Waiters are cheerful and helpful. Overall, food is nice and they do have a nice wine list. Better makes a reservation if you want to go for a dinner.
