On numerous occasions we have visited this restaurant around 6.0 p.m. for early evening special three course meal. We have never been disappointed with the choice ranging from home made soups and great selection of pasta dishes and signature cheesecakes. The staff are very friendly and the restaurant has great early evening atmosphere.

We spent late afternoon having a couple of drinks on newcastles grey street while waiting for the parade to open up a year of world rugby. Drinks in the Charles grey and Harry's bar both buzzing with families and party goers. After the parade and fireworks we headed to portofino which has to be one of my favourite eating places...

We came to this restaurant as a couple, I enjoyed the meal but my partner wasn't as keen. The service was good and the staff friendly. We had a bottle of wine (Rioja) which was ok but not as good as expected for the price. The building is lovely with the tiled walls and ceilings. It's a bad time to... More
