Great italian food

I have visited this restaurant few times during past years and I have always received a good service and food. If the weather is good, get the table on the terrace.

Perfect location on the town square. Food was OK but the real issue is the service. The "boss" took our order but then forgot to tell the kitchen so we had a long wait without apology. The staff fawn over their regulars and treat visitors as a bit of a nuisance . Food ranges from steaks etc through to pizzas... More

We had heard that this was a good restaurant, maybe it is, in the winter, it just could not cope with the amount of guests that it lets in.

After having problems finding this second floor restaurant we enjoyed the excellent food and friendly service. We arrived late in the evening but had a warn welcome. The place offers individual Italian cuisine, not just the standard dishes. All in all, it's very recommendable.

Portobello is located in the 2. floor of a building with another restaurant in the 1. floor. If I hadn't read about it here, Iwould not have found it. Anyway, nice food for 2 children and 2 parents. Tried pizza, pasta, lasagne and chicken. All pretty good. 50 Euros for food and drink.
