“Great find”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

We arrived in the pouring rain and found this little restaurant where we had an excellent lunch inside in the dry. Went back a couple of evenings later when it was sunny and sat outside, again food was great as was wine. Service friendly and helpful.

“Good fish restaurant in a great position on the harbour”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

This place looks unprepossessing, but it's one of the better places to eat. Limited menu, and the usual lack of vegetable choice, but the fish is good- take the recommendation of the waiter as to what to have !

“My favorite place in Portofino”
Reviewed 23 October 2013

I stayed in Portofino for a week and ate here almost every day. Paolo and his staff are warm and friendly, recommended the best dishes and took excellent care of me. The service is always quick and efficient and the food is excellent! This place became my home away from home and I always looked forward to chatting with them when I arrived. I was here on the off season so it was quiet in town and nice to make new friends here. Also, when my credit card was stolen, Paolo was kind enough to offer me free food. Unnecessary, but much appreciated!

“Right in the plaza”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

It's more than just the location, the food is worth a visit as well. Good pasta, of course, but also nice selection of fresh fish.
