Across the small bay of Portovenere lies the rugged island of Palmaria. There is only one restaurant on the island, and here Iseo (aka Giuseppe), an accomplished chef, does the cooking. Fresh pasta and local fish such as branzino (sea bass) are headliners at this fun dining spot with lovely views looking back toward Portovenere. To get here, take the restaurant's free riva boat from the Portovenere jetty.
