I bought one bottle of Pesto, Green sauce, to put with pasta. This is a very nice and fresh pesto, so good that you can eat it with bread too.

As someone who isn't a pesto regular I tried the small free sample being offered (okay I actually had two!) and was stunned at how different (much much better) it was from the pesto we get in the UK... My only BIG regret is I...More

This pesto is the creamiest!! there is not a hint of tartness that you get with other pesto. I bought 10 jars for gifts and kept 5 for myself. The flavors are blended perfectly--none of the ingredients over powers the others. True balance. Love this...More

If a guy says come and try some pesto. Do it. This has to be some of the best, most fresh pesto I've ever tasted.I would go back to portovenere purely to buy another jar (or ten). I've run out now and I'm devastated!

Our tour group stopped here briefly to sample the fresh pesto being put out. It was delicious and authentic, made right on the premises. The owner was delighted to share with us and several of the group bought small jars to send, or take, back...More

While strolling the streets of Porto Venere, we were offered a sample of pesto from this shop. As it was delicious, we went back later for lunch. Although this is a shop that sells pesto in jars for souvenirs, they also have large catering pans...More
