We were here last week and we thought, "oh this place looks like a cute place to sit outside and have a quick lunch"-- what a mistake that was! The salad was fine (definitely not worth 18 euro), the pesto pasta was good-not great. But the huge mess up on our part was ordering drinks. We didn't have a drink... More

Nice little bar with prime location. Not sure why its called an American bar. Drinks were overpriced 16 euros for a drink.... Limited food options. No cocktail menu. Probably a pass...

Returned to Pirtofino to sample this lovely bay and watch the world go by whilst eating and drinking on this harbour side pontoon. The outlook is spectacular with a vista of colourfully painted houses, splendid boats and fashionable people sauntering along the quayside. Captain Medley Isle of Man

Ambient and cozy place in Portofino. Very good service. Vine with snacks. Everything makes you happy here. But I had crush on the Dolce))) My tiramisu was perfect!!

This is a great location, waterside with harbour views However my meal was extremely disappointing. Wine is overpriced although you expect that in this tourist resort. I ordered a Nicoise Salad which came with very ordinary salmon out of a tin complete with the fine bones. And the beans were watery and grey. Exceptionally disappointing considering the prices they charge.

We sat on the floating area of the restaurant. Two women were serving there and it took them over 20 minutes to just give us the menus. They conveniently did not give us the drinks menu and we were naive enough to order regardless. After an endless wait we were served, albeit, with a lot of attitude. Were shocked to... More

We chose La Gritta because of the comfortable seating and relaxing music. The Ravioli and Pesto Pasta were delicious and for 18 Euros a bargain. The service was pleasant and attentive. A very pleasant meal in a relaxing environment, watching the sun set over the harbour. We would definitely return next time we are in Portofino.

I was surprised to read some negative reviews about the service at La Gritta. One in particularly about a waiter. Coming back to La Gritta this summer i was happy to see a new and improved menu.
