Take Away or Dine in Italian

Reasonable pizza establishment, establised about 10 years, but new owners last 4 or so. Includes dine in Italian fare, reasonable quality & price. Has slipped from what the original owners established.

Arrived late afternoon and looked locally for a dinner venue. Chose this restaurant because it was in walking distance from our accommodation. Should have known what was ahead when we saw only one table occupied. Ordered pizza. Told we couldn't split it to have a half and half flavour because "it's a dine in order". It arrived. A $19.50 pizza... More

Takeaway pizzas seemed to be popular. We dined in, meals came quick and were nice. Only suggestion would be if you are going to have drinks such as milkshakes and certain brands of beer on the menu that you make sure you can actually provide them!

if you are after reasonable food, this is NOT the place. The pizza's are okay but for the rest of the menu, I won't recommend this eatery at all!! We had the worst food experience. Burnt herb bread, veal that was like leather, prawns overcooked. WE left most of our meal. Also there was no customer service to speak of.

The Portovino's I went to was the one located in Golden Beach, The Pizza was really good, lots of toppings that was very tasty. Would definately return, Pizza's are just under $20 but easily feed two adults.

We returned to Portovino 3 times during our week stay at olden Beach. Both the pasta & the pizza were excellent, with very good service. Next time we will dine in and expect a similar result.

We had two nights away and on the first night we bought take-away pizza and pasta - exceptionally good (if I had made the carbonara, I would have been proud!). On the second night we dined in - a most pleasant experience and all meals were extremely good.

We ate here as we had an Entertainment Book voucher an it was handy to where we were staying. The establishment was well patronised with both takeaways and eat in clientele. The meals were quite large and tasty but were nothing particularly special. Service was very average and the atmosphere was that of a basic cafe/takeaway and not really a... More

Portovinos used to be my regular haunt...loved it when John and Jodi owned it. The prawns were always fresh and all of their food was exceptional. I have retried a few of the Portovinos since and unfortunately none of them live up to what used to be. The almighty dollar has spoiled things and they us substandard ingredients. I am... More
