On the way to Florence, my husband and I decided to drive by The city of Portofino. This little quaint fishing town has a wonderful small restaurant called Stella. It is located by the walk on the water edge so we had a beautiful view of the bay while dining. We didn't have a reservation and just walked in. It... More

Had a beautiful long lunch here a few weeks ago, the food was amazing, the views incredible and the waitress was incredibly helpful! Definitely recommend dining here!!!

We stopped for a late lunch after hiking from Camogli. I had the trofie pesto which was average (with potatoes in it which was odd), my boyfriend the mussels marinara (excellent, small but sweet, white wine sauce great for dipping and yes, that's not a marinara sauce as I know it). There was only one local white by the glass... More

We drove to Portofino for the day from Milan. Luckily we found Ristorante Stella!! Friendly staff very accommodating to us. Food was above average, patio seating on the water is hard to beat. Thank you......

Wonderful family owned restaurant. Reasonable prices for Portofino. Please try the Spaghetti Vongole.
