Disappointing Pizza

Staff were friendly, but the pizza was very poor. The cheese was a horrible yellow cheddar like variety and the base was thick and tough. It proves you need more than just a wood-fired oven to make good pizza.

We visited on Australia Day so every restaurant was busy, including this one but we chose this restaurant as they were not applying a surcharge, as many were. However we found the experience disappointing. The service was only ok, we never did get the bill although we asked several times and the staff didn't seem interested in engaging with customers....

Being in Fremantle for several days on business and no restaurant at my accommodation I had to reply on the available establishments close by. Preferring Gluten Free meals, I found the Portorosa to be able to cater to my needs. I have eaten there the last 2 nights and have been very satisfied with both the service and the quality... More

Ate here late on a Saturday in January. We sat inside and found the decor resembled a cafe and it was very noisy too. There certainly wasn't the ambiance we look for when dining out. We ordered the pork belly and salad, the pork was quite dry but edible. My companion opted for king prawns, a favourite dish when eating... More

Dropped in for Sunday lunch. No problems getting a table. My wife had calamari and I had a pizza. Fresh and great size portions. Desserts - orange cake and creme boulle. Again fresh and good size portions. Table service was attentive and unobtrusive.

Found a table here for a group of eight at 9pm on a Tuesday and were made to feel very welcome. Service with a smile. Pizzas fantastic, pasta was great and seafood was all beautiful. A good value, honest trattoria which wont disappoint. Kids aged from 8 to 16 all left happy too. Thanks.

The Portorosa is just that prefect restaurant that gives you the best quality food. We were new customers, the service was great some five star hotels could learn a lesson or too. The mussels in the tomato based sauce were to die for, best ever equal to any I have try in Australia & overseas! We will be back next... More

The octopus salad was good, pizza was average but still far from a real pizza. Few pizzas to chose from and they don't have the white base pizzas (e.g 4 formaggi etc). Tiramisu was a strange thing not comparable with the original one. Overall, nothing special.

Being a Fremantle resident I was shocked when I called into the restaurant on Friday to make an enquiry to book a lunch for 8 adults on the following Tuesday. When I asked if the minestrone soup could be puréed for one patron who only eats puréed food I was told a straight No! What an embarrassment for the hospitality... More
