Took the boat from Monterosso for the day. Had researched top restaurants in Portefino! We made a great choice! Best linguine and clams ever! Highly recommend.

We really enjoyed our Anniversary lunch here, the welcome was fantastic and the setting cannot be bettered. Food, service and ambience were sublime. The Sea Bass was the best we have ever tasted. We loved it.

Went here twice while on a great vacation in Rapallo close by... Great food and great service from the owners. The Portofino sauce is excellent!

While staying in Portofino, we visited Taverna del Marinaio 3 times! The food is fresh and delicious, and the service was absolutely amazing! This restaurant is family run, with great attention to detail in every way - we got to know the owners quite well, and have been missing them since we left! I should also mention that the location...

3rd time here and delicious as always. Owners are beautiful people too. The shrimp and langoustine grilled and mariné were excellent. The fish with olive and capres is marvelous and the sole meuniere with lemon sauce as well. I look forward for the next time. Grazie mille.

First let me tell you about the owners. Last year our friends where there and lost his phone. The owner contacted him, gave to police and 8 months later when we returned he got his phone back. That shows you the honesty and friendliness of the owner and the people in portofino. We then went to lunch to thank him.... More

The owner or whoever was very helpful and kind in giving recommendations. My friend had the pesto gnocchi and I had another kind of pasta with something like pesto with tomato. My mother had seafood that was good from what I tried. Wonderful atmosphere! Also there is a cute sea gull that likes to hang out in front of the... More
