The best thing about this restaurant is the setting with really good views on the harbor and piazza. The waiters were unfriendly and not very helpful. We could only get sandwiches and salads as it was past lunchtime. Food was ok but expensive and overpriced!

Owners think that with their location they can not invest in food quality and service at all. The worst pizza I got in Italy. Asked for a plate to share wirh a baby and got a dirty one. Overpriced. Avoid!

A deadful experience Do not be deceived by bums on seats. Wine very expensive poor quality and very small measure. Mixed salad worst I have had in 3 weeks in Italy. Green leaves and less than1 tomato badly presented. Location good but not good enough to make up for other deficiencies. Please miss this experience. A total rip off served... More

Unfortunately we didn't check trip advisor before stopping here for a late lunch. The only good thing about the place was the beautiful view of the bay. The food was terrible. We both got pizza which was tasteless. Mushrooms out of a can, scant tomato sauce and a small bit of cheese/ham. Would be better to buy some fruit and... More

A lunch time stop, 4 very small bottles of water very overpriced at 4 euros each. 4 sandwiches ordered, 2 tuna salad, salad was lettuce leaves and we are still searching for the tuna. Such a disappointment to a lovely visit to the town. Should have walked out when handed the shabby menus.

very nice location overlooking the portofino bay - though this is the only good thong about this place. the waiter was rude, however the tip was automatically added to the bill. we ordered a pizza, which was really small and tasteless, and a tomato bruschette, served basically without tomato, it was tomato sauce on it instead. avoid this place.

The beautiful location is sadly all that this restaurant has to offer. The staff are beyond arrogant and rude and the food is overpriced for what it is. Also be ready to spend €6 for a small can of Diet Coke....

Admittedly it was a stupid choice but everywhere was full and/or outrageously expensive and we needed a quick lunch for kids. Pizza was burnt. Salt shaker lis came off resulting in a pile of salt on my salad. No issues with this except they tried to charge us for the replacement salad (or half of the second salad) like it... More

We wanted to eat but decided to only get some coffee. Very expensive.... And the coffee was not even great. Rip off.

We had the chance to stop here, unfuetunately without check the reviews before sitting. A Sprite cost 6 euro each ( even in USA is cheaper). The hotdog comes with ketchup )???). Super dry pizza. The owner is very rude. The bathroom? Disgusting. I can't imagine on summer time with high temperatures how the service can be. I DO NOT... More
