The location in great in the center of the town in a small square. Food has been very good, we did try seafood antipasto gnocchi and tuna Capaccio. The service was very good. To try it when visiting Portovenere.

Even after the waiter told us we couldn't sit were we wanted, then seemed miffed when we wanted to eat outside in the little square by the fountain and wouldn't give us a garlicky butter sauce for dipping our prawns in, we found this charming restaurant delightful, they waiter turned out to be very gracious and nice.
I gotta say both our meals were delicious, we had fried prawns and calamari and spaghetti fruitti de mar.
Spaghetti was perfectly Al dente and the prawns and calamari was lightly fried and battered.
Half a liter of white wine was nice too

We were recommended going there. The place is really nicely located with a little piazza with a fountain. That is pretty much the only thing that was nice. The food is quite expensive. I had gnocchi with scampi for 12 €, a small portion of gnocchi with 2 full scampi! Quality was rather poor, even a fork full of meat from them and also very difficult to get out of the crust. Same for the crustacean with salad for 22€. It was more salad with some crustacean which came in the whole and it was hard to get the from the shell. Quite a mess to eat.
The cutlery was dirty. Half the order was missing and the waiter had to be reminded of nearly everything except the main courses and the restaurant wasn't even full.

Arriving late on our first evening in Porto Venere we ate at this restaurant and thoroughly enjoyed the food, ambience and service. It is positioned on the upper street in Porto Venere and you are able to sit outside in a small square next to the restaurant.

It seemed popular with many Italians and we thought it was good value for money. Like many restaurants in this town it serves predominately fish.

My wife and I had a sample antipasto with filled mussels, mesciua, anchovies, octopus. It was hot this day, so that was enough for us. The kids had spaghetti pomodoro as usual. We were all satisfied with our food, but I know now that I should have asked for a fiscal receipt, which I didn't receive.

Buongiorno , credo che lei abbia confuso il mio locale con quello di fianco al mio osteria del carrugio perché io non faccio mesciua e rilascio sempre ai miei clienti la ricevuta fiscale . prima di scrivere si assicuri di riferire informazioni corrette. grazieeeee
