Chelsea FC Boss Roman Abramovich and Girlfriend Dasha Zhukova buy's off restaurant table to lunch date.
He’s wealthy enough to book every table in any restaurant of his choosing if he wants to dine out in private, and judging by the empty chairs surrounding Roman Abramovich on Monday afternoon it looked as if he’d done just that.
Indeed, it was quiet enough to hear a rouble drop when as the Russian oligarch enjoyed a lunch date with partner Dasha Zhukova at Puny restaurant during their current stay in picturesque Italian coastal town Portofino.
The couple were spotted as they surveyed their menus in silence before a waiter approached and obligingly took their order.

With a glass of red wine in front of him, Chelsea owner Roman looked relaxed in a short sleeved white shirt and blue shorts, while model Dasha kept things low-key in a simple black top and a billowy ankle-length skirt.
During what amounted to the last day of the Premier League transfer window, usually a day of furious activity for club owners and managers, Roman quietly sipped his drink and chatted with his partner – and with good cause.
The West London club recently conducted some smart business in reinforcing their attack by signing striker Samuel Eto’o, who arrived from Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala for an undisclosed fee having agreed to take a huge pay cut.

Perhaps with this in mind, Roman smiled broadly as he waited for his order to arrive, while Dasha quietly sat by his side.
The couple arrived in the popular village by small passenger boat earlier that day after setting off from Roman’s sprawling luxury yacht, Eclipse.
Earlier that day the couple enjoyed a quiet stroll around the Italian Riviera hotspot, with Dasha making sure to maximise her tanning potential in the plunging spaghetti-strap number.

The mother-of-two kept the rest of her holiday look equally casual in a pair of flat black sandals and tiny black shoulder bag, while carrying a denim shirt in her hands.
Dasha - real name Daria - wore her light brunette locks tumbling in loose waves around her shoulders, while going make-up free as she and the Russian billionaire wandered through the streets.
Abramovich seemed to be on his phone for much of the afternoon, but nevertheless looked happy and relaxed as he enjoyed a day out with his stunning partner.

The football mogul kept his outfit casual in a sky blue T-shirt and navy shorts, while keeping his eyes sheltered from the Italian sun in a pair of dark shades.
Switching his usual smart leather brogues for a pair of relaxed boating shoes, the billionaire businessman seemed at ease in his low-key holiday wardrobe.
But one thing that wasn't quite so under-the-radar on the couple's day out was Abramovich's 557-foot yacht, which cut an imposing figure as it was anchored in Portofino's harbour.

The huge vessel was recently overtaken in the world's biggest yacht stakes by the Emirati royal family's 590ft Azzam yacht, which is worth a staggering £390million.
After a brief stroll around the town, the couple headed to a nearby eatery for a bite to eat, before calling it a day and returning to their yacht.
The pair are proud parents to Dasha, three, and welcomed baby daughter Leah into the world in April.
