It is easy to see why Richard Burton chose this spot to propose to Elizabeth Taylor, as the restaurant’s superb position on the harbor front provides a striking view across the water.
Tables and chairs flood onto the quay and are often filled with locals enjoying an aperitif before strolling around the harbor. It is the charismatic heart of the old town and the original harbor-side restaurant, but that only accounts for half of Puny’s popularity—the traditional Ligurian seafood cuisine makes up the other half. Try the catch of the day done ‘al verde’ (in a green sauce of parsley, lemon and white wine) or sample ‘papperdelle al Portofino’, Puny’s specialty that blends tomato and pesto.
