The whole of Portofino fails to give value for money with regards to food. elsewhere in Italy food is the main attraction and quality is assured. In Portofino food is decidedly average. That said, Stella was decent and I would return.

This is a restaurant lining the harbor of Portofino so it is going to be in demand! However, Stella goes beyond the average in order to give a delicious experience! WE had a great lunch here in September. Of course, the crowds are less than...More

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.
