This was the worst place we ate at in all of Italy. The awards on the front were a bogus front for cheaply made food with horrible service. We were an afterthought who basically had to beg for a menu, then wait a long time...More

This place was so good we wanted to go back immediately. The Testaroli, which I'd never even heard of, was delicious. Also, the Foccacia was the star of the show- pesto and cheese, we are dreaming about it. All in all, reading the other reviews,...More

My wife used the beautiful village of Portovenere as our base for exploring the world famous Cinque Terre. This was a smart choice as the ferry to the five towns leaves from here, and the village is truly quaint and serene. We heard the Osteria...More

Visited this restaurant in mid June soon after the new owners took over. The stuffed anchovies were the best we had anywhere. The fried seafood and vegetables was finely coated and non-greasy. This was the best meal we had in the 11 days of traveling...More
