We stopped here for a quick eat before getting the ferry back to Genova. The service was slow and awful, much like the food. We ordered a pizza, which was on a pre-made base. 2 panini which came out as toasted sandwiches and a tuna...More

We arrived on a cruise ship and had time to stroll and have lunch. The only reason we stopped here versus another place was the sign declaring Gnocchi was served. I've never had gnocchi in Italy so decided to stop. The very, very tiny tables...More

The only reason why I rated this place as 'average', is because their prices seem to be quite normal in Portofino. They already charge € 3 for an espresso,, so don't even think about other prices. Apart from that, they have a small outdoor seating...More

We popped in for a coffee and pastry ahead of making the walk from Portofino to San Fruttuoso. The cafe americano was overpriced and the pastries were stale and double the normal price. The loo was awful - the most stomach turning stench. Avoid.

Went there today for an expresso E 3,0! and a bite to eat. The coffee was OK. But the bruscetta and Panini were the worst I have experienced anyware in the world. It is pretty hard to go wrong with bruscetta, but they managed big...More

We stopped for a quick lunch and had a fabulous experience with fantastic food and service. Note that lasagna was delicious as well as the pizza.

To be clear: too expensive. You pay for the view like in the other bars and restaurants in portofino. But the prices for a coca cola or even a water are hilarious compared to usual Italian prices for those drinks. But view was nice and...More

Got overcharged for coffee (€3.50) and a small ice cream (€4) while the local policeman paid his normal €1 for his coffee beside me at the stand up counter. Lovely town and of course a rip off the tourist culture !!
