We arrived early enough to get a seat in this relatively small restaurant. Like all of Portivene an untold treasure. Great fritto misto frutti di mare, so crunchy and full of flavour. Both of our pastas were excellent. Fully recommended.

Un Mare di Sapori is located at the far end (from the central piazza) of the main shopping street in Portovenere. There are several restaurants on that street but I highly recommend holding out for this one. Fabulous Caprese salad, local mussels are highlights. There were delicious looking light pasta dishes we saw others enjoy as well. Very friendly staff,... More

Great for the fish lover. Of our 4 night stay in Porto Venere we eat here 3 times.... A great family business delivering exceptional service and food. The portions of fish were generous and the atmosphere was great. For that extra romance try to book a 2 table outside in the cobbled street. The only disadvantage is that unless you... More

Stoped by for lunch during a cruise. Chose this restaurant based on trip advisor recommendation. Very small restaurant and a narrow street that's full of quaint shops and restaurants. ( strongly recommend grabbing a slice of pizza at one of the shops ) Despite being busy the staff was able to seat us within 10 minutes. The food is simply... More

We went here after reading reviews on yelp. It's hard to get lost in Porto venere and the restaurant is on the main alley that goes through the town. everything about the experience was fabulous. You'll love it.

This great place is up on the second level up the tunnel stairs. We have been in Italy for a month and this place is tops. Clean, beautifully presented food, mid range on price, house wine good quality, service perfect. Put on your list

This was rated one of if not the best restaurant in Portovenere, so we made dinner reservations in advance for our last night in the town. It was fortunate that we did, because it was sold out with a list of hopeful diners waiting outside in the street. The decor was charming and fun with a boat for a bar.... More

I am so glad we found this restaurant on TA and listened to the great reviews! I reached out to them via FB and made a reservation which was key as the restaurant is small and always full. Our server was so nice and helped us to create a sampler of appetizers that were served individually which was great. We... More

Looking for a light, late lunch, we found this wonderful small restaurant! The special of the day was mussels ragu. Homemade pasta with mussels in the most flavorful red sauce! Paired with Prosecco and followed by a macchiato, it hit the spot in every way. The waitress was so friendly and we were totally charmed. Will be back!
