“Great food and service, plus”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 29, 2014

The food and wine here were very good, as was the location right off the water. A bonus was discovering that the owners sell excellent olive oil that they produce themselves, as well as other food products

“Amazing lunch spot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

Short and sweet. Incredible fritto misto (mixed fried fresh seafood) containing prawns, anchovies, calamari, etc....Delish house white wine (vermentino) was a perfect pairing. My wife had veal scallopini with an incredible buerre blanc sauce. Sitting outside by the cove of Portofino is heaven on Earth. Look no further for your go to lunch spot.

“Fabulous food, beautiful setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2014

Had a stunning meal here with my wife. It was our first night in Portofino and we were tired from travelling so were happy to go with our waiters recommendations. Simply the most delicious pasta and prawns I have ever tasted......and everything else was delicious too (try the Moscato wine with amaretti biscotti for dessert!). The local wine is also worth trying. An absolute gem, and worth every penny.

“Great location, shame about the food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

We had walked past this restaurant a few times and decided to stay for lunch one day but will probably not return to be honest. The location is beautiful, directly on the quayside and the menu choice is quite extensive, however the food we had was very disappointing - I chose a simple Salad Nicoise but the tomatoes were bland, the boiled eggs had black rings around the yolks, the tuna was dry and it bore no resemblance to any other Salad Nicoise I have ever eaten - and I have eaten many in both the South of France and Italy. My husband chose a seafood pasta dish which he said was not good - and he is much more easily pleased than I am. There was virtually no choice of wine by the glass and the service, if not actually unfriendly, was a bit brusque. I see there are lots of great reviews so maybe we just had a bad day which is a shame but in my opinion there are better places to eat in Portofimo.
