We arrived mid afternoon and they were open, many others on the harbor close between 1430 and 1900. My biggest complaint was it took 15 minutes from getting seated to having any staff contact. Antipasti misto (marinated seafood) was tasty as were the mussels (although...More

Predictably not cheap but a good location on the square and my son enjoyed his gluten free spaghetti bolognese which looked very tasty while we just had insalata mista (good but no gluten free bread).

Response from grossetti | Reviewed this property |
There is one underground parking in Portofino, it is safe (there are often Ferraris, Maseratis, Bentleys, etc); albeit expensive. You have no choice but to park there.
