Simple but perfectly cooked

Stumbled on this one without the aid of trip advisor - we had visited hotel splendido for coffee and we're going to have lunch until we saw the prices in the menu - decided to have lunch down by the marina - not disappointed by the food or the view - well worth a visit

We were here a month ago with Thai friends. Tried a bit of all specials of the day, including trofiette with pesto and baby octopus with tomato. All food and wines were excellent as well as the friendly service by the staff and the owners Paolo and his wife. Will come back soon.

Another great dinner at Taverna last night. We started with delicious appetizers: vegatable tart, marinated pranws with fresh onions and fish, anchovies and peppers, prawn and pepper skewers, boiled octopus with potatoes: we could not stop eating... then two of us had yummy 'moscardini' and others delicious penne with eggplants (aubergines) and shrimps and others mouthwatering pranws cooked with rosemary...

Our 4th visit to Taverna del Marinaio and we have never been disappointed yet. A must try on the wine list in summer is the cool crisp flavoursome Vermentino di Luni & the crudi (raw marinated) seafood appetiser is wonderfully tasty. The trofie al pesto the best in Liguria! All the fish we tried were super fresh and beautifully cooked.

We chose this restaurant for its charming appearance and nice selection on the menu. The food was excellent and service as well. After browsing other places for dinner we decided to return to Taverna del Marinaio as the owners and staff were the most friendly and gracious we have ever met as well as the food superb.

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.
