We both loved our meals! I had prawns & the bolognese pasta, my husband had the pesto pasta with the steak. Both meals were fantastic and the service was impeccable!

I think that's the American and me I'm glad we read all the reviews...... from the muscles to the caprice salad so then the pasta Bolognese the fish soup and the raviolis each one was better than the other! Everything was... More

Nice little restaurant in Portofino, we had good food and the service was good. It was a bit chilly outside and they provided clean blankets. They also have highchairs for toddlers which is always nice.

This restaurant has a good location near the sea and gives a good view of Portofino. This was our first visit to Portofino, and we had not planned for a special restaurant to visit. However Stella was a good choice for our lunch. The food was good as well as the service. With the nice view and sunny weather we... More

I've been visiting Portofino for over 40 years and have never eaten here. I selected it from trip advisor and am very happy with the meal we had - mixed seafood grill, pasta bolognese, sea bream - all really good. A bit over priced but to be expected due to the location.

Right on the waterfront this relaxed family-run restaurant gives its guests a warm welcome. The food is Mediterranean with seafood a specialty. The basil lasagne was delightful, and the Aperol sprtiz perfect. Enjoy the ambience, the people watching, the harbour life, the water taxis coming and going, and soak up the delight of being in Portofino. Around 100 Euros for... More

On the way to Florence, my husband and I decided to drive by The city of Portofino. This little quaint fishing town has a wonderful small restaurant called Stella. It is located by the walk on the water edge so we had a beautiful view of the bay while dining. We didn't have a reservation and just walked in. It... More

You pay for the view here really, the food you order is a bit of an aside. It's pricey and of average quality but the view is spectacular.
