We were there just before the St Georges festival. Portofino is quiet in the evenings in April and all the more pleasant for it. The outdoor section was nearly full. I started with the local seafood shashimi style platter. Truly amazing; really a work of art. Then I has spaghetti with local shellfish, then grilled sea bass. One one of... More

I can't say many good things about this restaurant. We were quoted one price and when we received our bill it was double. The food was less than average . The waiter was ok. I feel it is a total ripoff and do not recommend it .

Absolutely beautiful location and superb service! There is a wonderful infinity pool overlooking the bay from a high position in the hotel grounds. Good champagne and wine selection too so nothing to disappoint!

What a great spot Chuflay is! On the square overlooking the harbor, the maitre d' warmly greats guests under the outside patio awning. Sitting outside, with the inside windows open and piano player softly playing old tunes, Chuflay does not fail to impress!

Right in the center of Portofino this is a luxury hotel and part of the Hotel Splendido. You pay for service and food quality but don't expect anything inventive or outstanding. Just well done food in a little corner of paradise.

If you are looking for overpriced, overrated food with pretentious service---this is your place. Splendido is clearly not in touch w reality. We experienced better food and better service for less than HALF the price at Gemelli.
