Ambient and cozy place in Portofino. Very good service. Vine with snacks. Everything makes you happy here. But I had crush on the Dolce))) My tiramisu was perfect!!

This is a great location, waterside with harbour views However my meal was extremely disappointing. Wine is overpriced although you expect that in this tourist resort. I ordered a Nicoise Salad which came with very ordinary salmon out of a tin complete with the fine bones. And the beans were watery and grey. Exceptionally disappointing considering the prices they charge.

Great service, wonderful food and drink. Amazing place to people watch. Such a nice breeze on a hot hot day. Close to other shops and restos.

We sat on the floating area of the restaurant. Two women were serving there and it took them over 20 minutes to just give us the menus. They conveniently did not give us the drinks menu and we were naive enough to order regardless. After an endless wait we were served, albeit, with a lot of attitude. Were shocked to... More

We chose La Gritta because of the comfortable seating and relaxing music. The Ravioli and Pesto Pasta were delicious and for 18 Euros a bargain. The service was pleasant and attentive. A very pleasant meal in a relaxing environment, watching the sun set over the harbour. We would definitely return next time we are in Portofino.

But most of all to see the friendly faces of the employees. (The person criticizing the service must have found the server on... More

You do come to Portofino to have also the pleasure to enjoy a pricey aperitif in places like this, The floating bar is nice but "floating" so if you do not like the twisting effect , opt for the tables on the bank. Two efficient ladies and one less efficient waiter are overlooking the area. Well here just breathe the... More

The location on the water front and the floating covered dining platform makes this restaurant different from all the rest. The pricing of the pasta was 18 euro for spaghetti with clams and it was tasty.

Terrible service. Food was really poor but cost a fortune. They did not even have all the ingredients to finish our dishes properly.
