Unfortunately the pizza was not available so I cannot speak about that but we had a nice time at this little place that offers more than pizza! My boyfriend and I had our small dog with us and the gentleman was very friendly and accepting. We both had the house red wine and different types of gnocchi. The flavors of... More

Incredibly disappointed in my main meal, I ordered Gamberi in Padella (loosely translates to Prawns or shrimp in the Pan) They arrived completely in tact, shells, heads and all. Smelling suspicious from the moment they arrived. I began to shell them and the unpleasant smell increased, I did taste 2 of them and they were awful. They tasted like they... More

Ok perhaps Portofino in general is a tourist trap, but honestly this has to be the worst food I have ever eaten in Italy. The owner was constantly playing on his mobile phone and there was not one Italian chef in the kitchen, not that I would have an issue with that if the food was good. But it really... More

You'll find the service, food and view near perfect. As in most of Italy the food is plenty, good and very inexpensive. Nice wine selection for a pizzeria.

This lovely little ristorante is tucked back a block or two from the marina in Portofino. The spaghetti with clams was very nice as was the pesto lasagna. The house white wine was refreshing. We shared a chocolate dessert which more from than a mousse but was ok. Very polite service.

It's hard to find a cosy and relativeöy cheap restaurant in Portofino. But this is the place to go. Great pizza, good pasta and affordable wine. 4/5

Get the lasagne with pesto and a carafe of wine. You may miss your boat ride home, but you won't care.
