This is a restaurant that's placed at the very end of Porto Venere harbour front. But the important thing is that the food is very good. The night of our visit there wa a lot of customers and the staff was very busy. But the good thing was that we were not neglected, of course it took a while to... More

Perhaps it was because it was a Monday night, perhaps it was because the football had been on earlier (Italy vs Spain, then England vs Iceland - don't get me started!) but I couldn't believe that this restaurant wasn't full and that we easily got an outside table by the water. The location is stunning - overlooking the sea at... More

Good food, extremely reasonable. Good wine list and the glassware is all riddle, right down to the water glasses. Stick with the local seafood, mussels from the local waters. Nice location at the entrance to the Harbour. Well worth the walk to the end of the harbour. highly recommended.

Stopped here for a quick lunch, mainly for the good view. The place looks nice and is rather quiet (at least during a day) so it´s enjoyable to sit there. All the ingredients were fresh and good quality. Good pick!

Sits at the end of the boardwalk in Portovenere. Easy walk from most hotels and rentals. Very pretty views of the water. Food is average. Wait staff was nice, but not overly attentive.

Wonderful location and very nice ambiance on arrival. The evening began well and the waitress was knowledgable and charming. The starters arrived took a while but not unbearably so. Then the wait for main course was well over an hour. With only two waitresses and the maitre'd, the restaurant was apparently overcome by the presence of large party. In addition... More

Loved it! Nicest view and best atmosphere and food in Portovenere! Good service and wine list. One of our best dinners in Italy.

I have been a client of this restaurant for years, have seen changes in the chefs, servers, and owners. It is a stunning setting in a charming village. The food is always good, even if it isn't as spectacular now as it was at other times. I will always bring my clients there for the view. However, my most recent... More
