Portofino Difficulties

Cpalms | May 5, 2014 01:12 PM

So, I will be staying in Portofino at the Splendido - Even if the food is average I will not be suffering LOL!

anyway, being researching restaurants a bit and it appears that all of the restaurants in town are very average, have very similar menu's, only cater to tourists and are outlandishly overpriced. The restaurant at the Splendido looks good but crazy expensive. I have been told by reliable resources to just get in the car and drive up into the hills and go to a place like La Brinca in 'Ne but frankly, I would like to stay out of the car for the few days we are staying at the Splendido.

Are any of the places better than others in Portofino? someplace I can't miss? I was also told there is a walk/ hike/water taxi from Portofino to San Fruttuosa that may have a nice place to eat?

Any and all all ideas would be much appreciated!
