You must try this place when visiting Portofino. Choose the cheese and onion focaccia. You won't regret it. I was asking the price, because it was not displayed. The price is calculated accordingly on the focaccia weight, not per piece. The old lady was very rude and started screaming where do I come from and other words in italian. She... More

We revisited the Area with a stop planned for our focaccia ... A must have and one of the best. Just as we remembered from 2013. Just fantastic !!

Visited here for a cheap lunch whilst wandering the streets of Portofino. Lovely herby Focaccia and a slice of pizza. Well cooked and seasoned. Nice little bench out the front to enjoy your purchases on.

This place sells the best focaccia I have ever tasted. Buy some, take it to the harbour, sit on a bench and enjoy the taste sensation. Light, moist and moorish.

We enjoyed the most delicious focaccia here in beautiful Portofino. It was topped with rosemary, Olive Oil, and salt. Their Pignoli Tart was also yummy!

We had a little time in Portofino as part of our day tour onboard the Portofino Taxi Boat where Andrea dropped us off for some coffee and a little walk around Portofino. I came across this little bakery by chance as i was looking to buy some local italian gourmet food. I bought a bunch of Tartufo Blanco Olio, Tartufo... More

I keep returning to this bakery. Can't visit Portofino without calling at the bakery. Once one tastes Giorgio's fresh Focaccia all the rest become an anticlimax. It's that good and not even expensive. My favourites are the Focaccia with onions and the one with cheese. One can also try the Focaccia with olives or even a simple plain one.

The bread and pastries are quite good. Located centrally at the port. Enjoy a treat when you visit. There are several restaurants and a church within a block.

My wife and and I were in Portofino two weeks ago and had several slices of the white cheese focaccia bread. Simply amazing in texture and taste, I am looking for the cheese as I write this review. The slices were weighed and averaged 3 euro's per slice. Pricey but worth it. A must place to visit and eat.

Thank Steve R
