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.

Our first of 3 dinners was at Chuflay which I reviewed on TripAdvisor elsewhere. So, this restaurant had a previous wonderful meal to have as a comparison. This restaurant was every bit as good! The owner/host did everything he could to enhance the dining experience....More
