Fodor's Expert Review Le Bocche

$$$ Portovenere Italian

As you sit at the end of the Portovenere promontory next to San Pietro church, you'll feel almost immersed in the Mediterranean at this romantic and unique restaurant that is considered the village's most exclusive dining spot. The menu consists of in-season fish and a few meat options, and although dinner is quite expensive (as is the lengthy wine list), there is a light-lunch menu with lower prices.
