We loved it so much that we wanted to go back two nights in a row after dining there for the first time. Make sure to reserve in advance, they get booked up quickly in the high season.

A totally authentic experience with Mr Puny (in his mid eighties!) still very much involved, interacting with each and every guest throughout the evening. The atmosphere is so relaxed with super-efficient service from the well-versed waiting staff. Friendly, competent and professional with no intrusive approach, just accommodating. The food was exceptional and averagely priced. The oldest and most well-known restaurant... More

We went to puny on one of our 3 nights staying in portafino. It's was the best restaurant we went to in this area. The food was recommended by our helpful and friendly waitress and every dish was beyond perfection. Can't recommend this place enough. In addition the atmosphere was fun, lively and friendly, with the 84 year old owner... More

Most of our friends recommend this place. And now I will do the same. Service excellent. Food wonderful and fresh. Prices higher than the nearby spots, which frankly speaking, is a positive because it keeps most of the tourists out and allows it to maintain a certain level of sophistication. If this offends you, good, eat somewhere else so it... More

We dined here for a luncheon with our family and friends . The staff were delightful and the elderly couple that own and run the restaurant were charming and attentive . They made a fuss of our children and rushed their pasta orders through so as to avoid keeping them waiting ! All the food was delicious, fresh and the... More

We had lunch here during a short trip to Portofino from nearby Camogli. Ristorante Puny is well-located, right in the middle of things, but set back a little from the waterfront. It's a great spot from which to watch the beautiful people and boats that frequent this small tourist spot. For our visit, service at the restaurant was attentive, but... More

Recommended by the staff at Belmond, this restaurant met and exceeded expectations. The staff, food and view, truly made this a spectacular experience. The one note I'd make, as others have noted, make a reservation. This place gets crowded quickly and everyone wants to set outside towards the water. That being said, you'll certainly enjoy experience! Highly recommend!

We visited this restaurant on recommendation from our host at local B&B. Told of its fame and he owner who still works there is 85 years old! And also of all the famous people who visit. We booked ahead for a 8:30pm reservation. Price was €150 for one anti pasti mare, 1 pappardelle pasta with pesto and tomato, 1 fish... More

We ate here 4 times in 10 days. The food is delicious, the service incredible and the view of the harbour quite magical. The pairing of local wines with the catch of the day had us going back again and again.

We have been coming to Puny the last 12 years that we have visited Portofino. The food is consistently authentic - good fresh ingredients (mostly seafood) cooked very well without unnecessary embellishment or complexity. Amazing puddings - the chocolate mouse (not on the menu but worth asking for!) is simply out of this world and the semifreddo with warm berry... More
