The appetizer that has 8 different dishes is amazing,including the stuffed mussels.
The fish stuffed ravioli with a mussel sauce,the grilled seafood,all delicious.
It is on the island called Isola Palmaria across from Porto Venere. As we were staying on he island, we didn't have to take awater taxi. We drank local wines- all very good

The restaurant has a fantastic position in Palmaria Island overlooking Porto Venere, we had reservation for days in advance.Once seated and ordering our first plate, it took 2 (actual) hours as we ate only the appetizers, brought to the 4 of us at different times. We were tired of waiting, so we paid and left. The bottle of wine was uncorked right away but we had to ask for water 3 times before another waiter brought us a bottle over a half an hour. The problem was that the restaurant was busy and the help was not sufficient nor trained for the task. Later I was told from Italian friends that in cases like this the service is focused on known customers ...well, I guess they didn't give us a chance to get to know each other :-) From reading the other reviews I don't doubt the food is good (we will never know it) but the service is non existent.

Magnificent setting in Isola Palmaria, a short boat ride from Porto Venere (provided free of charge by owers). We had mouth-watering grilled fish, and were given a table with a spectacular view. Highly recommend. Reservations required.

We staid on Palmaria for 10 days and were eating in the restarurant almost every day. The food was good and they cooked even special meals for us as we have tried the whole menu already.
Very friendly staff.
It is worth coming just for the view on Portovenere.
