A charming seaside restaurant with wonderful food and service (and Philippe the seagull)

After a very busy bus trip to Portofino (if the ferries aren't running the busses are heaving!) we were recommended to this place by someone at our hotel. They didn't let us down! Very helpful staff with fantastic view out across the little harbour. Wonderful food, which was a little more expensive than normal, but the combination of helpful staff,... More

We were on our way back to our small cruise ship when passing this restaurant. The smell was enticing so rather than enjoy a lovely meal with good wine on board for free,we decided to eat here.Good choice. I don have a large appetite so a small plate of pastas with a tomato chilli sauce was enough. A chilled bottle... More

Delightful small restaurant serving Italian food. It's on the village square next to the water's edge with lots of tiny boats, larger yachts & a few really big boats. The service is very good & the food really delicious. I had pasta with shrimp. I highly recommend this charming Portofino restaurant with excellent food, service & perfect location.

Nice place, though might have been better. Nothing too special, food is usual, prices are normal. I liked the view of the sea.

We went here after reading Trip Advisor reviews. We arrived 15 mins before opening and they allowed us to leave our pram at a table, go for a walk and come back once they had opened. We were dubious taking our three small children (aged 4, 3 and 1) there but the staff were great. The prawn and calamari skewers... More
