On the way to Florence, my husband and I decided to drive by The city of Portofino. This little quaint fishing town has a wonderful small restaurant called Stella. It is located by the walk on the water edge so we had a beautiful view of the bay while dining. We didn't have a reservation and just walked in. It... More

You pay for the view here really, the food you order is a bit of an aside. It's pricey and of average quality but the view is spectacular.

Had a beautiful long lunch here a few weeks ago, the food was amazing, the views incredible and the waitress was incredibly helpful! Definitely recommend dining here!!! Make no mistake Portofino is expensive and the 5 Euro cover charge per person is standard here so you just have to get over it and accept that its the price you pay... More

We stopped for a late lunch after hiking from Camogli. I had the trofie pesto which was average (with potatoes in it which was odd), my boyfriend the mussels marinara (excellent, small but sweet, white wine sauce great for dipping and yes, that's not a marinara sauce as I know it). There was only one local white by the glass... More

We drove to Portofino for the day from Milan. Luckily we found Ristorante Stella!! Friendly staff very accommodating to us. Food was above average, patio seating on the water is hard to beat. Thank you......

The quality of food was not bad which is the good part. We waited for 20 minutes to order and another 45 minutes to get two plates of spaghetti. While waiting for spaghetti we ate 4-5 grissini and drank a bottle of water. Then we paid €10 cover charge and €4 for water. Total of 50€. We knew Portofino would... More
