My husband and I ate here every other night and we were in Portofino for 8 nights. The owner is warm and welcoming. The waitress is terrific and helpful in suggesting dishes to try. The food was always hot and delicious. It fills up fast, so I would suggest getting there early to eat.

Cannot understand why folks are clamoring to get a table here. The owner/manager acts overwhelmed, is unpleasant with his staff and just didn't seem happy to be there. The food was so so. Good pasta, strange pizza.

Don't get taken in by the overpriced average food places at the top of portofino harbour. El portico is just a little up the street off the square opposite Pucci and is far and away a better casual dinner place. We booked a table for 9pm at about 6pm which turned out to be a good idea as there were at least 4 other tables waiting when we arrived for our booking. The pizza was excellent as was the pesto lasagne. Their olive oil to accompany the bread was one of the best oils we had in all of italy. The place was packed to the rafters the whole time we were there. I wouldn't bother with dessert here though as its not there focus. Grab a gelato at one of the two excellent places near the square instead.
