I had lasagne and pesto and it was just delicious. The pasta alone was amazingly light, fluffy and very tasty, just so genuinely Italian. The staff were excellent and the prices were reasonable. Overall I'd recommend 'Tripoli' and Portofino to anybody!

Located right at the end of the harbor, this location is very convenient. TA (and our AirBnB host) recommended Tripoli - we were very underwhelmed. The food was adequate but not as good an experience as other Portofino restaurants operating in this space. The waitstaff was present and helpful throughout our dinner. An off menu bolognese pasta was nearby, and... More

My husband and I were staying at Santa Margherita Ligure and decided to walk the hour or so to Portofino to check it out and have some lunch. We decided to try Tripoli due to the positive tripadvisor reviews and we weren't disappointed! The mussels were divine, with the tastiest broth. We also tried the pesto lasagne which was lovely...

We had a lovely lunch here. I think we upset the waiter initially, not sure how, but he quickly came round and we were soon discussing snorkelling masks. Food was delicious. Not exactly budget but the setting and standard of service were worth paying a little extra for. Nice family feel. Would definitely return.

Having spent a long weekend on the Italian Riviera this was the best food I ate by FAR, I had lasagne with pesto and it was superb. Incredibly light p, pasta like a pillow and amazingly delicious. The waiters were delightful and the price reasonable. Portofino is pretty and not overly garish.

We ate there - 6 people after we trried to get a table in the restaurnts around. We suspect that since we were dressed very casual, we were refused by some of the upper class restaurants. Friendly and efficient service. Food was good and prices reasonable.

Every year we go to the area to see our cousins, they have been going to this restaurant for over 40 years and their is a good reason for it, the quality of the food is outstanding and priced very reasonable compared to having that same meal in a restaurant in nyc. They are very accommodating and has to be... More

We went there the night of August 14,2016 previous to Ferragosto. Their food options were a bit standard, average food quality, yet dog friendly place. Not sure if I would go back.

Here on Friday evening in high summer. They were able to fit us in as a three. The view of the harbour is fine and you are slightly of the main tourist passsegiata route. Service was excellent and food very enjoyable. Octopus salad particular favourite.
