“Expensive, and not good...”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013 via mobile

We were not very hungry at late time, and this was the only open restaurant in portofino. Only one starter, a dessert, one glass of wine and one coffe. 50€ !!! Starter was made with good fish but souce on it did not let you taste the fish. Waiters were around the table all the time, why hurry? ;) Although it seems lovely and unique, Batti was not a pleasant experience...

Gentile Cliente,
non so cosa possa intendere con "a tarda ora" perchè ricordiamo benissimo l'orario del suo arrivo, "21,30 circa", e comunque non eravamo l'unico ristorante aperto quella sera. Come da ricevuta non ci risulta che abbiate preso soltanto quello da Lei elencato e il suo antipasto "cocktail di gamberi" richiede una buona dose di "salsa aurora".
Inoltre evidenziamo che non eravate gli unici clienti nel nostro locale, pertanto i camerieri curavano il suo tavolo al fine di offrire un servizio migliore e non per metterLe fretta!!!! Spiacenti di non averLa accontentata al meglio La invitiamo a farci un ulteriore visita, magari con più appetito, per gustare al meglio le nostre specialità.
Vanda Foppiano e il suo Staff

“A Portofino standout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Da Batti has been one of the best in Portofino. Over the years, I have eaten there at least 30 times. Unfortunately, it has slipped a bit as the size of the scampi ( their flagship entree) has diminished slightly each year. Regardless, if you have never been there, I highly recommend it. The owner is generally there to oversee what is going on so you can count on good service and a "hands on" experience.

“Best scampi ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2012

This restaruant is not in the main square, but I did not care about the panorama!
I still dream about these scampi, the receipt is secret and the taste is unique.
Go there for a special occasion, the price is around 70-100 euro, depending on what you take,but it's worth it!

“Excellent Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

It has a set menu but it is the best menu ever: fish starters, linguine with pesto probably the best you can find in the area, and the langoustines are something you will not find elsewhere! Amazing! I try and go at least twice a year!

“Still dreaming of the scampi....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2012

If you love scampi, this is the restaurant to visit while in Liguria.

By far, the best scampi I ever had and will probably have...it's impossible to describe the tasty sauce perfectly buttered.

Not the most central location in Portofino but the restaurant is located on a side street, very typical of Italian and has a cozy atmosphere.

Service was friendly and total bill with wine was more than reasonable, especially for Portofino.

Would go back in a heartbeat!
