My wife kept repeating that she felt we were on a movie set, that the setting was livin afantasy world, romantic, relaxed and beautiful. But the wonderful setting gets better with the professional and patient service and of course the food. The swordfish, pasta, salad were all perfect. We enjoyed the food so much we're returning for another meal.

This restaurant in Portofino Italy is in the Hotel Splendido. The service and food quality are amongst the best I have enjoyed anywhere in my travels around the world. The menu offers a varied selection of pasta, sea food and meat and delicious desserts. It is expensive and worth it. Truly excellent and highly recommended.

We were there just before the St Georges festival. Portofino is quiet in the evenings in April and all the more pleasant for it. The outdoor section was nearly full.

I can't say many good things about this restaurant. We were quoted one price and when we received our bill it was double. The food was less than average . The waiter was ok. I feel it is a total ripoff and do not recommend it .
