The keel as in keel of a boat ( La Chiglia ) restaurant was our favorite restaurant in Porto Venere. Service always good. The food was delicious. The price quite reasonable. Fresh sweet seafood especially the mussels harvested right from the mussel farms right out front. Beach front view.

Several other much superior restaurants nearby serving... More

We made reservations the day before and were glad that we did. The restaurant filled quickly, mostly with locals shortly after our arrival.

Place has been recommended by friends to us. The service was fast and friendly. All special wishes were considered. Food was amazing and we were surprised that despite being in Portovenere the bill didn't kill us. We can highly recommend that place. Reservation is a must.

We went to La Chiglia on a Sat evening - it is just a 10 minute walk from the centre of Portovenere. Although we arrived quite late, the restaurant was full and we were lucky to get a table after just five minutes of waiting. The service was excellent - the waiters polite and efficient.

We had a wonderful and expensive lunch there . They could not speak a word of English which made the interaction hard. But the food was excellent and Resturant interior design was very nice
