Food was on par with what you would expect at an autogrill, but much more expensive. Wine was also 2x the price of a glass in cinque terre.

This place is awful. Should have read TA reviews. The aperol spritz was OK but for 10 Euros it should have been great. The pizza is YUK taste like it came from a freezer. Frozen Is actually better. The real disgusting part is the older waiter told us we had to pay our 42 euro bill in cash. They do... More

We did not check out tripadvisor before sitting down here. Lots of places on the main square were fully booked for lunch as it was Easter Sunday. This place was busy, but had space. The setting, like anywhere in Portofino, is fantastic. Greek salad was fine. Pizzas were very bland and nothing special at all. Service was not with a... More

This place has received lots of negative reviews - BUT we found it great! It is not cheap, but you are in Portofino, nothing is cheap! We had a variety of food - pizza, salad, hot dog and desserts - all of us were happy with what we ordered. My opinion - give them a chance :-)

The best thing about this restaurant is the setting with really good views on the harbor and piazza. The waiters were unfriendly and not very helpful. We could only get sandwiches and salads as it was past lunchtime. Food was ok but expensive and overpriced!

Owners think that with their location they can not invest in food quality and service at all. The worst pizza I got in Italy. Asked for a plate to share wirh a baby and got a dirty one. Overpriced. Avoid!

A deadful experience Do not be deceived by bums on seats. Wine very expensive poor quality and very small measure. Mixed salad worst I have had in 3 weeks in Italy. Green leaves and less than1 tomato badly presented. Location good but not good enough to make up for other deficiencies. Please miss this experience. A total rip off served... More

Unfortunately we didn't check trip advisor before stopping here for a late lunch. The only good thing about the place was the beautiful view of the bay. The food was terrible. We both got pizza which was tasteless. Mushrooms out of a can, scant tomato sauce and a small bit of cheese/ham. Would be better to buy some fruit and... More

A lunch time stop, 4 very small bottles of water very overpriced at 4 euros each. 4 sandwiches ordered, 2 tuna salad, salad was lettuce leaves and we are still searching for the tuna. Such a disappointment to a lovely visit to the town. Should have walked out when handed the shabby menus.
