We mistakenly thought that all restaurants in Portofino were top quality. This is not the case. Il Pitosforo food was less than average, service was terrible (starters came all at different time) and meals were very expensive. Don't come.

The food isn't above average but price is very high. A coca-cola can costing 8 euros is really out of reality. Also they charge 5 euros for coperto and more 15% for services. Not recommended at all

The view is the only thing you get from Pitosforo. Food is less than average in the area and price is twice as high. Service is VERY BAD. It looks as some unprofessional young people have rented this spot for the high season and are...More
