How’s your stay in Portovenere? Good? Did you visit the Michelin recommended restaurant on the mainland? Trattoria da Iseo? Horrible right? This place is the same. While I’m sure it’s nice to stay at the bnb here, the food is disgusting. It’s slightly better than...More

You get there with a lovely boat ride from Porto Venere. The view is fantastic as the restaurant should have been in the past. Now the food is nothing special and doesn't justify the price you pay for it.

The staff spoiled our group at our evening meal. From antipasti to dolci, we enjoyed the best choices from the Ligurian Sea and surrounding countryside. Trofie al pesto and the risotto- mmm! Beautiful spot to take in the sunset over the water.

I read many reviews of Locanda Lorena, mostly negative and mostly complaining about the price. I beg to differ. Lunch was fabulous! The prices are not crazy at all and the food is well worth what you pay. The antipasto di mare was 7 little...More

Of course, back we go to this wonderful place. First of all, I have to hug the owner, Giuseppe, who always seems pleased to see us! We are sort of regulars. Besides excellent (!) food, the view of Portovenere as night slowly arrives, the lights...More
