What a delicious selection he made....from zucchini and corn fritters to prawns, potato bravas, pork belly, duck salad and paella, just to name a few. Well priced... More

4 nights in Melbourne midwinter. Consulted Tripadvisor for great Tapas & eclectic wines within walking distance of my hotel. It was a very wet windy cold Saturday night around 9pm but so worth the 20 minutes dash to Portello Rosso.

From start to finish the staff were attentative and helpful....the food was just excellent, we took the advice to have the chef's recommendations at $55 per head and we loved every dish....the sangrias were fun and rather delicious....although we did perfer the sparkling sangria as opposed to the 'red" sangria....just a taste perferance....and the bill was very reasonable!!

If you enjoy authentic and flavouresome spanish cuisine - this is a gem. From the mouth watering pork belly, pulpo ala gallega thru to the churro dessert - the chefs have nailed incredible flavours combined with great service. This restaraunt remains on my favourite CBD hot spots.

This place is down a dark lane, so you will probably have been told about it or read about it here as we did. The menu is tapas like.
