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 us pay 2 eur for a dish that costs 10 eur. Also they ran out of spicy pizza oil, while pizza is their specialty. Wishing them clients as good as their service. Careful, you have been warned.

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 arrival a bit slow but given we were the first there the kitchen was likely just starting up.
We had previously had terribly poor service at the Palameria restaurant so it was so nice to have staff that were welcoming and willing to help.
Nothing is cheap in Porto Venere but in that context the meal was one of the better priced for the meal portions and quality of food. I would go again.

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.

We went there with my husband. The kitchen was already closed and they served pizza only but the waiter offered that they would prepare any pasta for us. We decided to have pizza. A nice big plate, tasty ingredients on decent dough. And the service was funny - the waiter - Donato, talked with us like an old friend, we felt comfortable at this place.

This restaurant is in a very convenient location just outside the town, where one could sit outside and watch the world go by - all very entertaining..

The main reason for the four stars was the excellent selection of wines - they had some local, very fragrant, whites at extremely reasonable prices.

The 'seafood soup' was not really soup - it was a medley of different seafoods on a smear of potato puree. The roasted vegetable side dishes were excellent.
