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.

form Italian test and point of view this restaurant is nothing special. I would not consider Italian restaurant but just and western restaurant which made some dishes inspired by the cuisine Italian. However worth a try it

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. The sheep cheese in the Greek salad was just like back home in Europe. The ingredients were fresh and the waiters always ground fresh pepper on... More

As a Zhuhai resident for many years, perhaps I am spoilt by the ridiculously cheap prices of the local Chinese restaurants, but I do find Portofino expensive. I have eaten at here at least 3 times and the food is always excellent. The service is friendly & competent, with staff who speak good English and can advise on the menu.... More

I must begin by saying that my Italian guests liked this restaurant more than me. They know their food and found it to be excellent. I cannot rave about it as much, but this is indeed a very elegant restaurant with very attentive staff and a great chef. Food was good and very tasty; pizza tasted especially quite delicious. I...

Very good place to go for dinner. Pasta is nice, as well decor. Its a bit pricey for what is it, however, keep in mind that this is China, and not all the ingredients are easy to get. Chef Luigi was nice and even gave as a free digestive at the end of the meal. All in all, decent Italian... More

I was at Portofino's 3x over the last two weeks with different groups and it was always good. They have a nice selection of food and actually bring it on the table in a timely manner. The staff seems to be trained quite well. The last group (17 people) I went with was very happy that I picket that restaurant... More
