I don't even know where to start with this review. Firstly the table was filthy and we had to ask twice before somebody cleaned it. Then we ordered. One of our group ordered a steak, the waitress did not even ask how he would like it done, ok not a big deal. Then I ordered a Sauvignon Blanc and got... More

We boarded the ferry at Southbank and headed to Williamstown for the day. Unfortunately because of the weather in the initial part of the day the Sunday market wasn't happening. By the time we reached Williamstown our coats came off to enjoy the beautiful sunshine. Up to point Gellibrand and back down past all the restaurants trying to pick which... More

The food excellent as always risotto to die for. Service has improved 100 per cent in the last few months. So keep up the good work.

Had an early dinner there tonight. We went in after reading the blackboard specials for $12. I checked which pasta was included for $12 and no one mentioned that pasta Al forno was not a $12 dish so my partner ordered it. Both pasta dishes were very ordinary, we make far better at home. It is many years since I... More

The most disgusting meal I have ever had.. Service was even worse.. I am a waitress myself so I have certain expectations. And that was not reached.. $4 for a glass of coke that wasn't even a pot. The waiter got our order wrong, so we waited longer for lunch we ordered a simple chicken salad, the salad consisted of... More

I felt like a pasta tonight and despite the modest rating off Al Porto Vecchio thought I would give it a go. The modest rating was in fact accurate. I ordered a pollo pasta only to be served bacon and mushroom. On enquiry with one waitress I was assured it was the pollo! Having completed a fruitless search for any... More

I recently visited Williamstown for work with a large contingent of people (approx 60) and we approached the owner of Al Porto Vecchio to see if he would be interested (and more importantly, able to) in meeting our dinner requirements as we were working some really long hours. Much to our delight, he and his team not only offered us... More
