“Food was tasty, location is greàt.”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

We arrived here for lunch on a beautiful sunny day. The restaurant is beautifully situated at the port and it presents very well. We had a lovely meal of pasta with seafood, mussels and a salad. A lovely bottle of local with e was recommended to us. Service was only just OK - but hey, we were a late lunch table and I think they just wanted to close up before dinner. I'd go back.

“Positive Surprise”
Reviewed March 18, 2014

Havent been since 20 years, and I have to say, I was positively surprised, by the quality of the food. The antipasto was simply delicious, fresh and tasty. The seabass in the oven, a masterpiece of cooking. Nothing special, but good, simply good.
That is exactly what I expected, therefore a reccomandation to go again!

“Even better than you could ever expect”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

We were traveling with small children, and at the end of the day, they were tired and hungry. Most restaurants don't open until 7 PM or later. This restaurant opened over an hour early for us. We expected to just sit and eat bread and drink wine until they opened, but the owner was so hospitable, it felt like we were visiting family. He brought us many different antipasto dishes, each one more delicious than the previous. They proceeded to serve us our entire meal before the restaurant opened. Everything was so amazingly delicious. The price was not outrageous, either. The next night we went to another restaurant, and expected the same- no way.

“Quality dining”
Reviewed October 15, 2013

Not sure where all the previous negatives are coming from: can only assume people are in a hurry and have no taste. It's the perfect restaurant: a great setting right on the harbour front at Portovenere and the fish is certainly excellent quality - it's the best sea bass I've ever had. The service may not be the quickest in the world but the food is freshly cooked to perfection and that can't be hurried. The staff are friendly and jolly. I can only assume that those reviewers who have criticised the staff have probably been pretty unfriendly themselves; it takes two to tango! We enjoyed the whole relaxed experience here and would thoroughly recommend the place.
