Very nice little local place for lunch or dinner. We had a fantastic seafood soup, a bit pricey @ 22€ but seafood was excellent and large enough for two people to share. Pasta dishes, one ravioli with walnut sauce and spaghetti with baby squid...both very...More

Had dinner here or local seafood and itwas as impressive as you might imagine. They do know how to cook fresh fish and spaghetti. Staff very friendly and helpful. Not cheap but worth the cost. I could go into vast detail but that would spoil...More

Family run with everything made on site from family recipes. All fresh vegetables and fish. My favorites are the fish ravioli and the pansoti with a walnut sauce.

A place not to be missed. Fresh fish, a superb Cappon Magro and a selected menu of traditional food of Liguria from antipasti through main courses and home made desserts . Warm reception and the pleasant atmosphere of a family restaurant.

Very genuine small italien restaurant specialising in fish and pasta. Off the beaten trackers and full of locals. Owner extremely welcoming and friendly, food absolutely delicious, and service always with a smile. Totally worth a visit if you want to escape the other tourists!

Family owned and run pasta and seafood restaurant. Friendly, good food. Excellent pasta, especially the pesto. My wife and I shared a whole fish prepared simply with oil, lemon and parsley. Nicely cooked and very tasty. Reasonably priced. Very unpretentious. Recommend highly.

We had a gorgeous walk to beautiful Portofino and back and we were hungry! Our Airbnb host, Laura, recommended Trattoria da Pino, near our apartment, earlier in the day. The delicious smells from the kitchen led us to the door where we were greeted by...More
