Portofino Ristorante Italiano is well known amongst the Zhuhai community as being the best place to taste authentic Italian cuisine. Our menu is an array of delicious dishes made up of the highest quality ingredients imported from Italy. Our wines are top shelf and definitely worth a try, just ask one of our friendly staff and we can help you decide which wine will suit your meal best. If you feel like a splurge, be sure to try one of their deserts. Don't Forget to check the specials board that offer monthly specialties that are authentic and rare gems of italian culinary culture. If you are looking for a place to take that special someone, or perhaps the family for the perfect treat, Portofino is the place to go in Zhuhai.

The new location next to the Novotel Hotel is excellent, the decor and dinning area are all new and very pleasant. As a westerner looking for Italian food in Zhuhai your expectation must be realistic, its not Milano or NYC. The Pizza was disappointing the dough was so thin that the pizza breaks when you pick it up. Pasta was... More

The restaurant is finally well managed by Matteo, an Italian guy expert in Food and beverage. He just changed the menu that has finally a large selection of Italian dishes. Unfortunately the pizza is often too crunchy and with a large edge. Not at all the real Italian pizza. The answer to my complaint was that the owner (a Chinese... More

Good option for international food in Zhuhai. Pasta al dente well prepared. Service was excellent. We were given a free Limoncello shot at the end. Definitely a good option to try in Zhuhai if you want to try a more western type food.

Our host brought us there and insisted we must have the Orecchiette Alla Fantasia. When it came, we realized why the fancy name. The preparation process was itself an entertaining show. They prepare this pasta dish right next to your table and although it was done out of a big bowl made of cheese, the final outcome was not too... More

Three visits to Portofino so far, three wonderful experiences. Authentic hand-made pastas combined with an adequate wine list all set in a wonderful environment. It definitely stands out amongst the Western restaurants in Zhuhai. That being said it's a rather random geographic location if you ask me...you'd think the prices would be cheaper given the lack of prime real estate.

I tried some other Italian places in Zhuhai before, but I must say that Portofino is the best of them all! My friend and me had Pasta and shared Greek salad as a starter.
