Service about 3 and food 3. My wife got wrong dish, but may be as a result of the language. Wine good and sensibility priced. Nice location around dock area as you come in. Going in I knew it was 3 stars hoping that we might be surprised. No dice, just a 3.

We ate here several times during our stay in PortoVenere. Consistently good food. Anchovies in lemon and whole fish highly recommended. Service friendly and efficient.

There are many places to eat here on the marina and I must say this one had the aroma from the kitchen garlic and basil it was worse than being the worm on the hook we had to sit here. And by george it was the right move nothing came out under a 9.5 for flavour presentation and quantity. The... More

Very rude waiter! In the midst of our order he walked away and talked to other guests. We ordered one dish and received something else. When we pointed Out what we ordered, he argued, with an attitude. There are logos of Michelin stars on the door of this restaurant! It's impossible! Good was mediocre and overpriced. The service was below... More

We were recommended to try this ristorante by our hotel receptionist in La Spezia and it was a very mixed bag! Nice food and crap service!! Portovenere is a very pretty little coastal town, that's not as crowded as the Cinque Terre, with many waterfront ristorantes. When we arrived we wanted to dine outside, where there were several empty tables,... More

This is a Michelin rated restaurant right along the harbor, so we thought it would be overpriced and mediocre. But our youngest daughter had the choice that night so in we went. The food was unbelievable, the service spot on and the prices were absolutely fair. Lots of different seafood starters to try, so go ahead and order away!

We had a good meal in da iseo. The florentine steak was good and the vermentino wine was gorgeous. The young waiter was super and we enjoyed the sea bass but ask for it to be filleted.

The food was good but they forgot my salad. I ordered a glass of white wine and they gave me sparkling and then I was told that there was no white wine by the glass, only the bottle. In Italy???? Then my friend ordered a coffee after lunch and was told there was no coffee because the machine was broken.... More

This is also known as Trattoria da Iseo on the Via Calata Dorian. The large white umbrellas identify the site. Our attention was drawn to the restaurant initially by the friendly maitre d who greeted everyone walking by. This is a tablecloth-cloth napkin restaurant with a large menu and larger winelist. I wanted fresh seafood and got exactly that, with... More

we sat down at 1930 and the staff were slow to react. i think it is understaffed as everything seemed to take an age, even though we were in no hurry. food was good
