Nice location, great wine menu, staff is friendly. To have the same menu as in the hotel restaurant Olimpo (belongs to Vis a Vis) for me as guest isn't fair. The portions a bit small too.

Despite the restaurant being owned by Vis A Vis the hotel we were staying in my wife and I rated our meal very highly. The setting is excellent situated on the beach looking out to The Bay of Silence. Excellent staff and service.

He were referred here by our hotel and I'm glad they did! It is right on the water which makes the food taste even better. Great service! They brought us complimentary Prosecco as soon as we sat down! The best meal of our entire trip in Italy. We had the portobello risotto which was the best I've ever had and... More

The most amazing view, absolutely breath taking. I would pay even if the food wasn't good but the food was wonderful. Scallops were fabulous. Also the octopus was amazing. Presentation of the food was amazing also. They treated us as if we were royalty. We had an 8 o'clock reservation and didn't make it until 10 o'clock. The restaurant was... More

Lovely setting, food reliably good. Ask for Morone fish. My choice after Polpo Mario if sitting outside is possible.

We've been travelling for 1 month across Provence and Italian Riviera and unfortunately the experience with the Portobello restaurant was the worst. The location is wonderful and the Michelin guide stickers on the door definitely had gastronomic appeal. But that's where it ended. I asked the owner to recommend the best dishes they have. The tempura shrimps and vegetables were... More

No Comment.. Just a note on your horrible behaviour, not reserving the table and sitting on a front line table that was reserved by other clients, and making a whole scene because we asked kindly to move to another table even though the restaurant was full. We call it " CAFONI" in Italian. The rest in written in your totally... More

When I wrapped my lips around this meal it was culinary ecstasy, the steak was wide and juicy, just how I like it. Plenty of sauce to help it go down, salty yet sweet. The flavor was exquisite and compared to all the steaks I've had around the local area I'll certainly see them again for the 2nd date. *winks... More

Beautiful view of the Bay of Silence from here. This restaurant was recommended by our hotel. I had the Ravioli stuffed with seafood and it was amazing. Kids were able to find something they liked too.

Great service and food with a peaceful outlook over the bay. Excellent sensa glutina options for my wife while the sea urchin past was excellent. Great wine list and a real character waiter rounded out the experience.
