We picked this restaurant as it looked like it had locals in it! Not top of the list for atmosphere but with quick service and lovely food. We wanted to be back out enjoying the beautiful sights of Portvenere! My stuffed mussels (Cozze ripieni) were just delicious and the local pesto, for which Liguria is well-known, was excellent. When I first travelled to Europe these were the sorts of places we hunted out - not perfect, inexpensive, well-run, with authenticity and a small but solid menu. With our lack of Italian, and theirs of English, we still managed to communicate effectively!
