My hotel recommended this place so I made the huge mistake of going there without checking tripadvisor first. (Note to self: Always check TA first!) I honestly can't find one good thing about this restaurant except for the view and the location. The wait staff had major attitude problems. Words like aloof, bored, couldn't-be-bothered come to mind. Food was equally... More

We wanted a nice meal in a nice restaurant and Da Iseo's menu out front seemed to be just what we were looking for. They also boasted of their Michelin Guide rating so we figured this would be perfect. We were wrong. From the moment we entered the restaurant I sensed the snootiness. The table they offered us was in... More

Wanted to have a nice family lunch, wich was completely ruined because of my bad hand in choosing this restaurant! The owner allured us with his 'michelin guide' badges, so i thougt it must mean some quality standard. -how wrong was i! First of all, the waiters are really unfriendly! Maybe they get paid nothing, wich could explain why they... More

Service about 3 and food 3. My wife got wrong dish, but may be as a result of the language. Wine good and sensibility priced. Nice location around dock area as you come in. Going in I knew it was 3 stars hoping that we might be surprised. No dice, just a 3.

We ate here several times during our stay in PortoVenere. Consistently good food. Anchovies in lemon and whole fish highly recommended. Service friendly and efficient.

There are many places to eat here on the marina and I must say this one had the aroma from the kitchen garlic and basil it was worse than being the worm on the hook we had to sit here. And by george it was the right move nothing came out under a 9.5 for flavour presentation and quantity. The... More

Very rude waiter! In the midst of our order he walked away and talked to other guests. We ordered one dish and received something else. When we pointed Out what we ordered, he argued, with an attitude. There are logos of Michelin stars on the door of this restaurant! It's impossible! Good was mediocre and overpriced. The service was below... More

We were recommended to try this ristorante by our hotel receptionist in La Spezia and it was a very mixed bag! Nice food and crap service!! Portovenere is a very pretty little coastal town, that's not as crowded as the Cinque Terre, with many waterfront ristorantes. When we arrived we wanted to dine outside, where there were several empty tables,... More

This is a Michelin rated restaurant right along the harbor, so we thought it would be overpriced and mediocre. But our youngest daughter had the choice that night so in we went. The food was unbelievable, the service spot on and the prices were absolutely fair. Lots of different seafood starters to try, so go ahead and order away!

We had a good meal in da iseo. The florentine steak was good and the vermentino wine was gorgeous. The young waiter was super and we enjoyed the sea bass but ask for it to be filleted.
