When you buy either beer or wine the price includes tapas style nibbles (which I assume come without asking for but better to ask just in case!). However they do take a little longer to arrive than the drinks themselves so (just a little) patience...More

The waitress said the total of the bill out loud without showing us the details of the receipt. When we asked for precisions, they had charged us 12€ more than the initial value without any explanation. The wine cost 10€ more than the menu price...More

Da Paolo is in the central piazza in Portovenere and open for lunch and dinner. Fresh seafood seems to be the speciality. We had a grilled shrimp & lobster plate that was delicious. We later had a pizza for lunch that was less exciting. Nice...More

Trying to find a place with early service in Porto Venere is not easy. At da Paolo the staff were willing to let us sit early and start looking at the menu to pick something for our daughter. The pizza and pasta were lovely. Food...More

Went here with my gf. She ordered a Torino pizza and it was the best pizza I have ever tasted. Properly cooked through, amazing fresh ingredients. Highly advise eating here.. I had the pasta with shrimp and strawberries and that too was spectacular.
