We were in Portofino for a couple of days and this was our best meal there. The place is right in front of the small harbour in the famous Piazzetta, the service is very welcoming, kind and friendly and the food is the best ever.
Marinated prawns, Penne Taverna and fish fillet with olive oil and herbs all served with good wine. Definitely a must go!

We had just few hours in Portofino, so we decided to visit this restaurant by Tripadvisers's choise. And we didn't regret about it. Yes, it's a bit expensive, but you get what you pay for. We had two wonderful white fish fillet - one in lemon sauce, second with herbs and pine nuts. It's was so tasty, the fish was melting in our mouths! The dessert was also very fresh and nice.
The personal is very friendly and helpful. We had a home wine, it was very strong )))
We recommend this place for lunch or dinner, sure that you will like it!

What a great place to have lunch. Splendid food, lovely views and friendly service. We were running late for our table booked for lunch. Not really our fault as we were held up by the police a couple of Km out as they will only let cars in when a parking space becomes available. Best to park up before and get a cab in - cheaper than parking there as well.

We had three meals in Portofino, and this was the best. Super service. We asked them to bring our food quickly (American style) and they couldn't have been more friendly and obliging. The food itself was fabulous, and the location on the port in the shade was awesome.

Best restaurant Portofino by far! We spent 4 nights in Portofino and we could not fault this restaurant, the others we tried were average at best for food quality. Service was good, food was excellent, wine was good and prices we found to be reasonable for Portofino. We would have been happy if we went here every single night however we only tried this restaurant on our 3rd night and could not get in the following when we tried to make a booking. You must book ahead to avoid disappointment. Seafood was exceptionally fresh and overall highly rate this restaurant.
