We ordered two spaghetti al frutto di mare and a bottle of water , they asked us to pay 65€ including the coverage which was 10€ . Not only but they also changed the of the spaghetti from 22€ to 25€ on the bill . Though the food was average.

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.

Had a stunning meal here with my wife. It was our first night in Portofino and we were tired from travelling so were happy to go with our waiters recommendations. Simply the most delicious pasta and prawns I have ever tasted......and everything else was delicious too (try the Moscato wine with amaretti biscotti for dessert!). The local wine is also... More

We had walked past this restaurant a few times and decided to stay for lunch one day but will probably not return to be honest. The location is beautiful, directly on the quayside and the menu choice is quite extensive, however the food we had was very disappointing - I chose a simple Salad Nicoise but the tomatoes were bland,...

We met old school friends whom we had not seen for two decades in Portofino for lunch. Walking around the harbor area we quickly concluded that O Magazin was the ideal choice as it was away from the crowds while affording an amazing view of the port, the yachts as well as the castle. What we were not prepared for... More

Family owned and family managed, there is lack of precision in the service (and sometimes a bit confusion), all service members are very friendly nevertheless, the organization is not perfect though. That said, you have now all plus: food fantastic (probably the best Spaghetti alle vongole - they call them, in genoa's way, arselle), great location (in Portofino's harbor), wonderful... More
