On the Monday after Easter we were in Portofino for the day and we saw the reviews for this restaurant and decided it was our best option. It was one in the afternoon and the place was packed. The owner told us maybe around two, give or take, we could get a table. We returned at two and there was a table finishing up and was told it would be a little bit longer. I had eyed the food and had a good feeling about the place so we hung in there. The owner comped us a glass of prosecco while we waited which was an added treat. Once seated the service was a bit slow but it was such a gorgeous day I could have cared less. We had a frito misto as an appetizer as well as a special tuna and beet dish. There was a bit of a slow down after the first course and my solution was to order another bottle of wine. The waiter brought the bottle and told us this bottle was on the house.
Our main course was a mixed seafood rissotto, spaghetti Alla vongole and a very unique lasagna. Everything was excellent. Highly recommend.

Pesto lasagne was divine - you'd have thought they had made it with a pestle and mortar just prior to serving it - the taste was divine. The brochettes of prawns and squid were the most succulent and fresh I have ever eaten - topped with a homemade cake that made a fabulous evening complete.

We enjoyed a superb evening here the mussuels, pesto lasagne, and mixed grill fish. Amid very stiff competition during a week in Liguria and Lombardia, this was probably the best meal of all. We finished with apple cake and decaf coffee. The staff were very friendly and accommodating.

Made the mistake of going to the top trip advisor restaurant on our first night but once we discovered this place we came back for a second visit. More genuine and with a truly local fresh menu. The fried anchovy starter is the best!

One of the many trattoria on the harbor, the friendly and attentive service makes this one stand out. Great food Ligurian style.
