Here on a Friday lunchtime in high summer. Sat in covered terrace. The food was fine (try the focaccia) but you go for the view of the harbour and Castello Brown. We had a Thunderstorm during lunch and a yacht in the harbour was struck by lightning. The staff were very quick to put up the side rain covers so... More

2 very small pizzas, 1 water and a coffee 30 euro and then they charge 3 euro per person for service which is 20% on top in our case. Can't recommend if you care about your money

Total rip off, heavily overpriced for the size and quality of meals, charging 3 euro per person for the table even without offering bread. Pizza was not the worst but ridiculously small, grilled octopus was burned and not well prepared. Not recommended

Had to enjoy a meal at this must see and unreal fantasy place. Opted for a classic Italian pizza-pasta place with a harbour view, da Nicola. What a good choice in this glitetati sub-tropical wonderland! Rather small pizzas, but with great toppings and wonderful and balanced flavours. Not cheap at around 15 Euros a pizza and 22 Euros for a... More

superb location in the harbour in Portofino, more affordable than some of the other restaurants in Portofino. The pizzas are authentic and have great bases.

Family of 5. Stopped for early lunch. My wife and I had late breakfast so we were not hungry but kids were. They were able to sit us impromptu at a very nice outside table. The restaurant was not offended that my wife did not eat. In fact, I requested 2 peach bellinis which they did not have on the... More

We ate here twice to cheer ourselves as the heavens opened! Beautiful ham and mushroom pizza melts in the mouth and the anchovy spaghetti was to die for!

My wife said it was the best meal she'd had in Italy, we were a party of 10 most had pizza but we had a meal off the menu, reasonably priced for Portofino and good quality tasty food and excellent service.

We were lucky enough to be staying in the Albergo Nazionale and so we had a generous discount for this restaurant. We took advantage of it one evening during our stay to give our finances a bit of a rest from the more expensive other restaurants on the harbour! We enjoyed a good meal with plenty of wine in a...
