A year ago, I came to Nonna Nina and the food was actually quite good. I recently came here again and while service was good, the food was very disappointing. This is not really an impressive experience. I don't know if it is just me but is this place over priced and overrated or what? The food was just ok.... More

We had dinner here on a quiet night. The food was really good. Particularly the pasta. Its in a wonderful location and there is a wonderful bar to the right of the church along a path, higher in the village which is just built into the rocks and great for an aperitivo

Slightly cool reception, not helped by our poor Italian. Lovely view from the terrace. Good food, service (yes!) and wine. Went to the bar on the cliff below the church in San Roco afterwards. Simply stunning view watching the sun go down !

Recommended by our hotel and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, struggling to understand some of the more negative reviews. The trofie with pesto was superb, fish ravioli very good, main course of grilled fish exquisite, all simple rustic fare executed very well. Desserts also good. Try to get a table inside in one of the charming rooms, not so keen on... More

The restaurant is located on top of a hillside in the little village of San Rocco, between Camogli and Portofino. It's a very clean and neat and cosy place which is frequented mostly by Italians and very few tourists. The kitchen is classical regional Italian cooking. Not artyfarty, but rather genuine, honest and simply delicious. The cook loves to serve... More

Paolo, owner and Chef is a great and caring man ensuring he will satisfy you at best. Beautifully located on the hill of S. Rocco this little restuarant is beautifull decorated. All the dishes are homemade/home produced...the Trofie with pesto and green beans...I'm just speechless...I'm dreaming them at night! The filled of local cheeses sardines fried are a delicacy! The...

We were not impressed in our visit to Nonna Nina. It had been highly recommended to us by our host in Camogli but perhaps we make the wrong choices. We visited for dinner, the place was packed and we were seated at one of the tables at the very entrance of the restaurant, in a small lateral area, so I... More

There are already so many damn reviews of this place, so it seems almost superfluous to add to the accolades, but I'm going to do it anyway. The menu is written in Ligurian dialect and offers only few choices but all tipically Ligurian dishes. Yes, this place is quite expensive but oh! so very very good. I'd say it's one... More

I highly recommend this restaurant, which serves delicious seafood dishes. In particular the tuna is quite extraordinary. Don't miss the pies as dessert either! Though the menu is handwritten and the waiters don't seem keen on speaking English a lot, everything is excellent so you won't be disappointed. This restaurant lives up to its reputation!
