A Little Bit of Authentic Spanish ina Melbourne Lane.

Went to Portello Rosso a Spanish Jamon Restaurant in Warburton Lane a number of years ago. Friends and I had been trying to make a reservation for a return visit but we were always on a far too short lead time. My daughter visited me from Perth for Christmas and I happen to mention that this was a... read more

I recently had dinner here with friends. We were impressed with the very friendly staff - a Spanish woman from Barcelona. Her English was ok but she was so friendly and chatty that we soon forgot that we were simplifying our English for her. Our tapas and main meals were just delicious. I would definitely come back here again.

We were extremely impressed with the food and the service at this restaurant. Must book as its popular! Fabulous menu including wines. Great to get there early and go to the bar for pre dinner drinks, its next door (upstairs)..very warm and cozy bar. Highly recommend this place!

We hadn't booked a table on a Tuesday evening and the restaurant was full, however they managed to squeeze us in at some bar stools on the balcony, which gave us a great view of what everyone else was eating! The service was attentive, the food delicious - the mussels and prawns were both spectacular - and the experience felt... More

I celebrated a birthday lunch there and both myself and my guests were pleasantly surprised. It was a great menu with a lot to choose from and not only was the food well presented when it came out, but tasted fantastic as well. This combined with the excellent service, meant a lunch well enjoyed.

Hidden down an alleyway, you will be suprised when you experience the friendly atmosphere, delicious tapas and morish Sangria. Large group bookings up to 18 upstairs, we were amazed at the service considering the group size. This is value for money, the business group enjoyed the experience.

A slice of Spain framed by a big red door. Excellent Tapas is enhanced by a knowledgeable staff on all menu items. Attentive multicultural staff lets the evening swing into full gear as soon as you are seated. One advice is to book for later sessions when you don't have to return the table, so you don't have that crowded... More

Beautiful tapas restaurant hidden in a quiet melbourne lane. Great atmosphere coupled with fantastic tapas and drinks - the chilli mussels are to die for. Very attentive and cheerful staff. Was one of the highlights of our trip

When someone else arranges a meal at a restaurant they select and you then look at Trip Advisor to see what others have said about it there is always a risk that you will then approach the event with trepidation. The restaurant they choose for us to meet was generally well reviewed, with a few critics. The trouble is that... More
