The staff spoiled our group at our evening meal. From antipasti to dolci, we enjoyed the best choices from the Ligurian Sea and surrounding countryside. Trofie al pesto and the risotto- mmm! Beautiful spot to take in the sunset over the water.

Very nice dinner at Locanda Lorena. Restaurant picks you up at Porto Venere for a short but pleasant ride to island in front. Restaurant was ok: excellent food but a rushed service.
