Good food for a reasonable price

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... read more

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.

I love pizza especially in Italy, but I also love salad. Here you can have both without over eating. Their small pizza is about 20 cm across leaving room for a câpres salad on the side. Very happy with my lunchtime choice.

This is a very busy place and nmost placeses serve only seafood. So we choose this place and it was a good choice. The pizza was good and even though this area are full of "turist traps" - the staff was service-minded and as mentioned pizza was nice. Would visit again.

A group of eight females, celebrating my daughter's forthcoming marriage descended on Portofino. We'd seen this restaurant a few days earlier and decided to give it a try on our last evening. What a gem. The waiters went to a lot of trouble to accommodate the eight of us outside on a lovely balmy evening and we had the added... More

Close to cruise ship tender pier is this great Italian restaurant. Very friendly service & reasonable prices. I had focaccia & then spaghetti carbonara. Both delicious. This restaurant is a real treat & I'll be back when my ship returns in a couple of weeks.

Excellent service. Excellent position, behind a wall, so late evening wind coming from the Marina will not bother anyone. The pizzas are really good, and all the food is prepared very fast. The waiting time is very small. So if you are really hungry, just stop here and you will most likely be eating very soon. The prices are actually... More

Having blown most of your holiday money on the very pricey restaurants for which Portofino is famous, Nicola will offer you tasty Italian favourites at sane prices. Cheerful and efficient service will help to foster a warm glow of satisfaction in the heart of this, the most beautiful and tender tourist trap in the world.
