The restaurant sits right on Portofino harbour which gives a great setting especially if you get a table at the front. The food was awesome (Seafood Superb) service brilliant, made to feel very welcome.

The steak and the ravioli with white fish was fantastic however the seafood pasta I did not enjoy as much as the first one I had in Rapallo. Tourist place I guess the price is not reasonable but I did enjoy the view.

Very nice fish of the day ( a bit pricey at 29 euros still ) and rest of dishes were good. Service was very attentive and nice. Globally not that bad.

We both loved our meals! I had prawns & the bolognese pasta, my husband had the pesto pasta with the steak. Both meals were fantastic and the service was impeccable!

We were skeptical since the restaurant is right at the porch and we thought it was a tourist trap! I think that's the American and me I'm glad we read all the reviews...... from the muscles to the caprice salad so then the pasta Bolognese the fish soup and the raviolis each one was better than the other! Everything was... More

Nice little restaurant in Portofino, we had good food and the service was good. It was a bit chilly outside and they provided clean blankets. They also have highchairs for toddlers which is always nice.

This restaurant has a good location near the sea and gives a good view of Portofino. This was our first visit to Portofino, and we had not planned for a special restaurant to visit. However Stella was a good choice for our lunch. The food was good as well as the service. With the nice view and sunny weather we... More

I've been visiting Portofino for over 40 years and have never eaten here. I selected it from trip advisor and am very happy with the meal we had - mixed seafood grill, pasta bolognese, sea bream - all really good. A bit over priced but to be expected due to the location.

Right on the waterfront this relaxed family-run restaurant gives its guests a warm welcome. The food is Mediterranean with seafood a specialty. The basil lasagne was delightful, and the Aperol sprtiz perfect. Enjoy the ambience, the people watching, the harbour life, the water taxis coming and going, and soak up the delight of being in Portofino. Around 100 Euros for... More
