Actually, especially for a leisurely lunch, this spot is perfect. The food is quite good. (I loved my trofie and pesto sauce with potatoes and green beans included, and my wife her Margherita pizza.) Wine with and a grappa after left me very satisfied and...More

Yes it's a little pricey, but it's in Portofino so that's to be expected. For Portofino, though, the prices are actually pretty reasonable, and the food is really good. We were glad we found it and felt we got a good value for our money....More

Good basic Genovese menu, an Italian couple took one look and left so maybe more suitable for tourists? Certainly have menus in various languages... That said, nice cool beer, reasonable wine by the glass and food tasty. A spaghetti bolognese and pizza piccante. No cover...More

This place is tucked away in a side street, great place for lunch. Great inexpensive find in ritzy Portofino and service was great. Ideal before climbing the big hill to Castello Brown.

We stopped here for lunch following the reviews speaking of reasonable prices. Well, the food was good, the service acceptable, but the prices unreasonable like in every restaurant in that place.

Skip the expensive waterfront restaurants in Portofino which will cost you an arm and a leg. Instead, find this little restaurant on a side street (easy to find, head up hill, take a right near the large hotel, and take a right again, and voilá)...More

Situated in a quiet side street off the main square this un-reposing establishment punches above its weight in the food stakes. Friendly staff providing excellent pizzas without much fuss. Unfortunately we did not have time to linger as the trip boat was due out. This...More

We had the most amazing pizza here. The menu was limited but everything we tried was delicious. The restaurant is on an intimate and charming street with lots of character. I do not understand the 3.5 star rating and low reviews on here. Will definitely...More

A few steps make a great difference in Portofino. This hidden gem is just a half block from the main road to the harbor, but it is located on a quiet pedestrian pathway, well away from the hoards of tourists thronging the harbor area. We...More
