Good location but food expensive and overall uninspiring, pesto pasta good, but sadly fish cold and very bland served with just half boiled potato!

Although this was the only restaurant open in Portofino during our visit, we found a perfect spot! After visiting several towns in Italy, we think this was our best meal. The pasta and fish (with green sauce) was amazing. Charming spot and great service.

I can thoroughly recommend Taverna Del Marinaio. I enjoyed a the house antipasti which was a medley of little starters followed by sea bream. Friendly and attentive service. It was on the pricy side but worth every mouthful.
