Tasty dinner

Because we stayed at the Albergo Nazionale hotel we got a 10% discount on dinner here. Food is tasty and fresh, as midge cheaper than some of the harbour side restaurants and the waiters are friendly

Last September, my husband and I were in Portofino. We had been there many times but not in recent years and we were really happy to be back. On our way to the small port, we noticed a little restaurant which looked interesting and with affordable prices and decided to eat there on our return stroll. It was early afternoon... More

Thanks to tripadvisor we planned our lunch here in Portofino. We had a very good meal (trofie a pesto), dessert, coffees, extras, etc. Because of the low prices we felt relaxed and content to order a lot of food. The food was very good. And after the meal the waiters filled up our water bottles with cold water before our... More

This is a horrid place to eat. They don't give a damn and seem to despise tourists. The waiters are miserable and look at you like you are scum. This is a dreadful place and should be avoided. Expensive and better value elsewhere. The pizza place opposite are far more inviting. Best of all is the little local bakery further... More

We ate here on three occasions. The other restaurants in Portofino, particularly those overlooking the harbour are expensive. Da Nicola was more sensibly priced. Highlights were the fish/seafood soup, the trofie al pesto and the pizzas. Service was very good as was the wine and coffee.

Busy bay-side restaurant. Average food, impersonal service. The one good thing to say is that the prices are much better than most places in Portofino. Stick to this side of the bay for the lower prices.

This is a nice place where to eat without paying Positano's bay view (you need to go to another one for that, but will be more expensive), and it is located just half a block from the bay. It has a simple menu with good courses and an efficient "italian" quick service. It well served our purpose because we were... More
