Well Mr Puny We didn't need to hear this from your staff upon arrival at your restaurant. This place is supposed to be 'the' place in portafino. We booked into puny via our hotel for 8pm dinner. From the moment we arrived it was like a theatre performance Watching the 82 yo owner manipulating the waiters and guests. The food was good. I had veal scallopini with white wine and my partner had sole meunière. Neither dish came with anything on the sides so we quickly ordered steamed veggies. They too were ok. For desert I had tiramisu and my partner had lemon sorbet.
For 130 euro I believe this place is overrated. And I think it's time you retired Mr Puny. Leave it to your staff.

Hommade tagliatelle with homemade pesto / tomato sauce combo is a must! Ask your waiter for recommendations!

On recommendation of concierge at next door hotel Belmond Splendido Mare we had lunch here waiting for our room to be ready. Not a great menu as really just wanted a pizza, service was just OK although a great view and pasta was reasonable but very al dente but a cold beer helped pass the time.

Arriving by bus from Rapallo, we enjoyed an excellent lunch. So good that we returned for another. Second time we enjoyed Prosecco on the Splendido terrace; a must @ E40 each (like St Marc's Square, Venice). Walking back, our charming waiter (long service in London) suggested we try their famous dishes. These are top and bottom of the Pasta page; Pappardelle and the Shrimp Rissoto. They are exquisite. Our Prime Minister, Madonna, Samuel L Johnson, Michael Jackson and the Bunga Bunga man have visited to eat these. If you like superb food in a modest Trattoria setting at reasonable prices, this must be one of the best. We dream of going back for more. Arrive early for lunch but you must book for evening meals; we saw many disappointed faces.

We had a picture perfect lunch at Puny. Our waiter was the nicest guy with great suggestions. The pasta was delicious, wine great, desserts incredible. Although Portofino is swarmed with tourists, Puny maintains a high quality and treated us like loyal customers who come in often. Wonderful place, greatly recommended
