Authentic italian seafood. The trofie pesto was a huge hit. Grilled octopus and the fish preparations were enjoyed by our group od six. Reasonbly priced wines

Eat there when in Portofino. Great view and the food is thumbs up albeit a little pricey, though to be expected in Portofino. Had the ragu tagliatelle and mussels in white wine. Both were delicious. Go early or make a reservation to avoid disappointment. Recommended.

We enjoyed an excellent dinner while being looked after by Momo this evening. The Mussels, Prawns, Fried Fish and accompanying House wine were all very good and Momo friendly, efficient service. The experience was enhanced by the phenomenal views across the harbour and up the...More
