Portofino Restaurant Guide

Where and What to Taste in Town


With being on the coastline, one thing you can count on in the local cuisine offered at the Portofino restaurant choices is of course  seafood. In almost every place, there will be the offer for the Catch of the Day brought each morning by local fishermen.



The real delicacies to try in this area are the crustaceans such as the scampi, gamberi and red shrimp ( make sure you taste the popular and tasty ‘Gamberi in Padella’ or ‘Shrimps in Pan’ ) as well as the oily fish such as anchovies, sardines and mackerel. You will also have a wide choice of other fresh fish from sea bream to cuttlefish and octopus to choose from...

For a chic restaurant experience (with a price to match) and most authentic Liguria food head to Restaurant Puny. It is situated along the harbour (for an exact address check the full Portofino Restaurant directory below).

If however, you just fancy some easy and affordable lunch then Pizzeria El Portico is an excellent choice. It serves mostly pizzas and savoury tarts as well as good first courses. You will find it under the short portico on the main street ( via Roma) that leads from the parking lot long to the Marina.

Portofino is a stunning place to have a picnic so another alternative is to get a focaccia and supplies from a bakery in town - there is one just next to El Portico on the main road as well as a sandwich shop next to it – and just head along to savour it.

You can just sit in the Piazzetta and enjoy the bustle of the Marina. Or head up towards the panoramic views afforded by the courtyard of the Church of San Giorgio.

Or have your picnic at the Lighthouse (Il Faro) at the tip of the Promontory where by the way you can get a tasty Italian ice-cream in the summer too...
