First time in Portovenere, the first night we walked up to this restaurant. The waitress was wonderful, very kind and patient, her recommendations were perfect!
We started with the Octopus carpaccio, perfection, not chewy light in flavor, very fresh. Then I got the grilled scampi, cuttle fish and Langoustines, my husband ordered the mixed fried fish, all were cooked perfectly, nothing was oily on the fried fish and the grill was perfect on mine. I had the white local wine of the house, and was perfect with meal. For desert I got the apple, was excellent and not heavy. Will definetly go back.

Been there 3 times. Had the fish soup 3 times. Perfect, just a dream, can't stop thinking about it.

No idea about the rest of the menu though.

Just try the fish soup.

Bad location, very good food, close to gourmet experience. During our one week stay in Portovenere this was the best restaurant we visited. We had one dinner and one lunch here. The dinner was the best meal. We had the sea food soup. It had plenty of sea food and was very tasty. The dessert menu was exciting and a perfect finish. All restaurants in Portovenere are quite expensive, many of them with bad service and average quality, so why not pick this restaurant and eat gourmet style food accompanied with waitors that have time for you and also a kind smile.

We sought this place out on the basis of the reviews above. But to say that our pasta was mediocre is to put it kindly. There is no kind way, however, to describe the increasingly hostile service we received. We hoped that the deserts would redeem the evening but were again sadly disappointed. It was a memorable evening, bit for all the wrong reasons. Of all meals we have eaten on the Ligurian coast, this was the worst.

Terrible service, mediocre food. We waited one hour for our antipasto and the wine arrived already opened. We gave up waiting for the rest, paid for what little we had and left. Go to the Tre Torri or Da Paolo in the main square. La Chiglia has terrible service, mediocre food. We waited one hour for our antipasto and the wine arrived already opened.
