There can be few prettier views than those enjoyed from a harbourside restaurant in Portofino. But to what extent are the exorbitant prices at Ristorante Stella attributable to the surroundings? A glass of Pinot Grigio for my wife, an Aperol Spritz for me, one spaghetti alle vongole, one spaghetti marinara - both cooked to al dente perfection - a luscious... More

We had delicious food at this restaurant with a great view of the small village Portofino. Even if it's the "famous" Portofino, prices are exagerated. We payed for 1 starter, 2 fishes, 2 glass water, 2 glass of wine & 1 cofee over 100 Euro! Apart from the price, it's very recommendable - great setting and food!

We had a lucky find here, it was very fresh seafood in a lovely harbour side setting. We shared the tempura batter mixed seafood dish - 90% calamari, some small fish and one large prawn, but all delicious. Add a portion of fries and a green salad to share, two small glasses of wine & 2 small beers and we... More

We ate dinner here . The restuarant is situated right on the waters edge and is the ideal spot for both people watching and boat watching. The food was very good....fairly expensive, but so is everywhere in Portofino

We got a table very fast. We got water and the meny. But then the waitress did not come to the table. It took 15 min. And it was only us and two other guest. The waitress was not in a good mood. The time was running we had to catch the ferry. So when the waitress finally arrived over... More

Stella's is perfect! We were greeted warmly and immediately shown to a table. The food was excellent. My son had the ravioli in walnut sauce and i had the pasta with shrimp and zucchini. The service was attentive but not overbearing. I would go there again without hesitation.

What a great find in the beautiful port of Portofino. There is no lack of choices to choose from, however, Stella is a great option. This family owned restaurant really cares about its customers and we had an amazing meal there. The location is breathtaking, along side the port and right beside the docking area for luxury cruise ships. We... More

We tried to eat here, the place was almost empty but because we are educated people we asked a waitress if we can sit. She asked if we are just the two of us, we said "yes" and she said that the restaurant was full. Really? We felt unwanted and we don't understand why this restaurant has so many excellent... More

We went for a late lunch here after arriving at Portofino and after strolling around randomly decided on this restaurant and weren't disappointed. It's in a fantastic location and we had a table outside overlooking the bay while the food was fantastic with great wine and fab service. It's reasonably priced by Portofino standards and after having dinner at one... More

Best place ever in Liguria! Excellent food, service and view. Second time I've been here, I can confirm it is amazing. It is a must if you are in Portofino!
