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

Poor service made the fact that the pizzas and food here are not very Italian tasting. The spaghetti was clearly microwaved from a packet and when I asked for my favorite Italian beer they said they could offer Becks instead. Really fancied a pizza and...More

The beef carpaccio is nothing like ever tasted before- 'marinated' the menu says. It doesn't say that it's salted to the point of vomit. None of us could down it even if the paid us. They were very understanding of our complaint and only made...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.

This restaurant and great food at a reasonable price (for a tourist town). Service was good and waiter could not be more accommodating to our requests. The anchovies in lemon are the best we had in Cinque Terre. Highly recommend trying this place out

When we arrived in Porte Venere our host recommended "Paul" to us. Cozy and beachy and a great view of the water and piazza. The service was great. They were attentive and helpful. The first night we ordered Filetto (perfecto!), Insalate miste (meh), pizza cotto...More
