Regularly at Christmas my wife and I visits the Portonovo which is on a barge in Aussen Alster. This last time it was extremely noicy with Christmasparties. With a small room you can hear all the tables so to say. The restaurant was full and it took a lot of time to get the courses. When you start looking at... More

I very nice place within the city but the first time ever I left a restaurant before main dish arrived. Place was semi empty when I entered and staff was very friendly. I could order fast and I took 2 dishes from the daily special - tomato/mozzarella salad and salmon with spinach - so nothing too fancy really. But here... More

We had lunch in this beautifull place just by the Lake "Alster" The staff is very friendly and they welcome you with open arms- just like Real Italiens do. The food is amazing and the Winelist is very nice. A place to visit if you are in Hamburg.

Easy going atmosphere still "high class". A well balanced menu and a complete wine list. To my great satisfaction the head waiter made the chef making a special "linguine a la vongole" for me. The evening was a perfect end of a perfect day in Hamburg.

As you may now know, The Portonovo is right next to the Aussenalster (the bigger one, for those not from round here). As you approach it, there is nothing special to say about it from the outside. But once you get inside, then the delights come! Firstly, a very generous and courteous welcome. Secondly, a table with a beautiful view... More

Another Italian that I would suggest for travelers to visit in Hamburg Germany! However this one is more the romantic type and would definitely be nicer during the warm weather as it has an astounding view of the lake! The menu is simple and limited but the food is delicious. The ambiance is very friendly and the owner greets u... More

Hamburg sporting VERY fine weather (seldom enough) : this is the time for a visit to the Portonovo. Situated on the the western side of the Aussenalster right behind the Kennedy-Bridge it affords a bellavista, an incredible view right across the lake towards the Atlantic Hotel and the whole eastern shore of the lake. In summer: a MUST to get... More
