Right on the piazzetta in front of the harbor, this colorful restaurant is smack in the middle of it all, so book well in advance. The lengthy menu offers tasty Ligurian dishes including pappardelle al portofino (large flat noodles with a mix of tomato and pesto sauce), which may be topped with shrimp, or the heavenly pesce al forno baked in bay leaves, or the famed risotto al curry e gamberi (curried rice embedded with tiny shrimp). Just be prepared to pay a small fortune for the location, view, food, and being part of the scene.
