The sight through the door is exciting. Good wines at E5 a glass and delicious, simple food. We had the Gerwurztraminer, Chianti, Carpaccio and Crudites, so often enjoyed by us in the back streets of Tuscany. Strong tastes and good value. Certainly for this area. This was an excellent experience in our eleven days in the Portofino peninsula.

After reading hundreds of reviews for restaurants in Santa Margherita Ligure and Portofino, where you pay huge amount of money for mediocre food and terrible service, we chose Vineria Macchiavello to have our meal, which was truly the BEST choice. The atmosphere of this wine bar, the attentive, warm service with a smile and, most importantly, the delicious pasta exceeded... More

You can only describe the list of wines sold as flawless, and the antipasti served was excellent. We were there in February, with is not necessarily the best month for the Italian Riviera so the place was quiet (one other couple there at 7.30pm pm on a Saturday but it is a cosy place. Only one, small problem. It really... More

Good wine bar with easy atmosphere and good selection of wines. It is a family runned business and keepers are fast and smart waiters too. We enjoyed two very good roastbeef served with fresh green salad and bread. We ordered also a couple of red local wine glasses which revealed to be an excellent choice. Final price just 35€ for...

We found the place in a rainy Sunday, in the internal street. Staff were nice with good English, food was tasty and wine was refreshing

We had a very nice night at Vineria Macchiavello! This old little vineria where you can feel the history in the walls has become a fantastic little resturant that serve wellmade classic italian food together with good wines in different price ranges. We did miss recommendations on wine that would suit the orderd food. Otherwise, 5 stars.

This place has grown into an excellent location for an often quiet glass of wine and although we stuck to the Italian variety there is much on offer. The proprieters show a huge amount of knowledge and willingness to advise but most of all make your stay in the bar be one that will draw you back for more. We... More

I found this place on TripAdvisor and even though it wasn't ranked super high, I love going to wine bars and wanted to give it a try. We walked in without a reservation the first night, but they were kind enough to accomodate us (we got lucky because we arrived right when they started serving dinner at 7:30pm.) They were... More

We had aperitivos here every night before dinner, with tasty snacks, and loved it. We actually ate here the last night and wondered why on earth we hadn't eaten here every night, as it was far superior to the others! Fresh ingredients, well cooked food, and an awesome wine list - great atmosphere. We had the same waiter every night,... More

We chose this restaurant because it reminded us of the lovely little restaurants we eat at in Melbourne and in the end it was a great choice. They have a great wine selection and great food to match. The atmosphere is lovely as is the service. We would go again.
