The 5 of us enjoyed dinner at Portobello - the restaurant was full but this did not affect the service, quality or time it took to serve the meals. It was a bit noisy but not such as to spoil our evening. We sat at a booth which was comfortable. The wine list has an extensive selection of reds, but... More

Very tasty meal when we dined in. We also had their take away pizza which was extremely good. If you have a sweet tooth (as I most certainly do) you have to try their Crepe Bam Bam. WOW...it was amazing either dine in or as a take away! Good job guys. Friendly staff that always have a smile for you.

Come here for as much authentic Italian fare as you can find in this far away place. Good pizza and pasta. Salad are also good.

We had a couple of dinners at Portobello. We found the food to be very good and the servings very generous. The staff were all very happy and friendly leaving us with full stomachs and a happy disposition.
