Of the 4 options in the main area, this one does the best pizza and decent pasta too, much better than 'el portico' across the way

Portofino is a town where a mediocre meal can easily cost you a mere 100 euros! This restaurant does tasty pizzas (cooked on the premises), a salad, quarter litre carafe of wine for under 30 euros. A gem.

We had read about the stratospheric prices of food in Portofino hence we decided to explore up the Via Roma away from the harbour scene. We were attracted to the comfortable outdoor seating of the Pizzaria Da Nicola. We were very pleasantly surprised to see that the restaurant offered plate sized personal pizza for 8 Euro. There was also a... More

We had a couple of beers, some pizza and allegedly spicy mussels. It was fine. The staff was quick and courteous and very, very serious. A few smiles would have made this a more... More
