We spent the waiting time for the ferry here enjoying good Ice Cream. The choice of food are drink options in Portofino is limited, so all the cafés can be congested and you may spend time waiting for an empty table. Nice waiting spot but nothing special.

The food is realy bad, with no flavor, glasses wasn't clean. Raelly overpriced !! You can find places with better food and location with much lower prices. They dont recive a credit cards and you reveal it at the end, when you have no a choice. Pay attention, they have different prices for sitting on the bar or on the... More

Went there today for an expresso E 3,0! and a bite to eat. The coffee was OK. But the bruscetta and Panini were the worst I have experienced anyware in the world. It is pretty hard to go wrong with bruscetta, but they managed big time. No oil, no flavour and terrible bread. In addition while we were there I... More

We stopped for a quick lunch and had a fabulous experience with fantastic food and service. Note that lasagna was delicious as well as the pizza.

To be clear: too expensive. You pay for the view like in the other bars and restaurants in portofino. But the prices for a coca cola or even a water are hilarious compared to usual Italian prices for those drinks. But view was nice and our waiter too. Lower the prices a bit and it is a cool place !

Got overcharged for coffee (€3.50) and a small ice cream (€4) while the local policeman paid his normal €1 for his coffee beside me at the stand up counter. Lovely town and of course a rip off the tourist culture !!

We stopped at Pasticceria Gimelli for a lunch by the harbour pretty much by chance. There were many other options available near-bye. A couple of friends had just eaten and recommended it to us. We shared a very nice salad Caprese followed by excellent and delicious pasta dishes; mine with the ubiquitous for the area basil pesto and my wife... More

OK, this was in the week before Easter on a windy day, so not the busiest time of the year in Portofino, yet two simple pasta dishes were delivered so far apart that one of us finished before the other was served. Surely you learn at Restaurant School 1.01 that you serve a table together, not serve the same dish... More
