“Fantastico !!!”
Reviewed 24 September 2011

We decided to go and eat in this restaurant last night because it was rate # 1 in TripAdvisor....and totally deserved it ! The food was just to die for, so much we actually shared a second plate of pasta just out of greed ! Service was nice and the setting by the sea is very romantic. We loved it so much that I actually think we might just go back tonight :)

“To O Magazin, from Cape Town with love!”
Reviewed 5 September 2011

What a wonderful find. We were told to visit Puny by friends who had been to Portofino before, but were warned to book 2 days in advance. We didn't have time to book for our first night, so walked around and found an unassuming little restaurant, away from the crowds and sat down for our first bite of Italy. It was sensational, the food was unexpectedly superb, the wine list fantastic, the menu small and the produce fresh. Service was attentive and engaging. We had the greatest evening, we cancelled our booking at Puny the next night and went back to O Magazin. I am still dreaming of the seafood antipasti.

“Simple, efficient, by the water nice seafood, charming and lovely”
Reviewed 28 August 2011

Everything you can expect from a diner in the village of Portofino by the water. Simple restaurant but romantic setting. Nice service and good sea food, fair prices, good italian wine list...you can go without any risks... ask for a table next to the water it's so Italian in the 60's, so Dolce Vita!!!

“DOES NOT NEED THE 1ST PLACE :-((”
Reviewed 19 July 2011

Very disappointed as the food was good but not amazing, prices were so high (30 euros for an antipasti) and a very low service (never saw the waiter smiling).
I do not recomand ...

“Best Food in Portofino”
Reviewed 13 July 2011

The food here is fantastic. We had dinner three nights in a row we were so impressed. Found the service to be excellent. Our waiter even advised when some baby squid had just been delivered during the evening, so we got a lovely special meal, straight off the boat!

The seafood pasta for two is spectacular - I highly recommend. Also spaghetti with vongole. The seabass served with potato was also excellent.

We tried quite a few places in Portofino, and I'd recommend this as the best that we came across.
