They have a wide gluten free range available, reasonably priced and very tasty. However our digestive systems suffered later that evening and the next day for both of us.

Apart from the sweet, young lady that served our pizza, Portovino is junk and just doesn't make sense. Ordered a family sized pizza with half with one topping, and the other half with a different topping. A pretty standard thing for most pizza places .... a half and half. Now, the interesting logic applied to the price of this half... More

This used to be one of our favourite restaurants. However, successive ownership changes have lead to a significant decline. Significant price increases have not helped either. Nowadays the restaurant seems empty. Takeaway is still OK.

We didn't feel like going out for dinner but didn't feel like cooking either - so decided on takeaway from Portovino which we had eaten at before. The food was fantastic, from the service on the phone taking the order to the meals we received to pick up - all very professional and friendly. Three veal dishes and pizza for... More

sadly we were not over whelmed. Our waitress was delightful (lovely Philippino lady(?)) as was the owner. But the food was not the usual Italian fare that we are used to so it maybe that we were expecting something different. In saying that my Steak was tasty but was not cooked to my request of medium to well. I did... More

I feel ripped off that there is a negative 1 button, as I feel that would be a more accurate rating of my experience. The ambiance, menu and prices are acceptable but their service is far from it. Taking our three little boys for a milkshake and hotchips after a day at the beach was less than a pleasant experience.... More

Went here while on holidays expecting a nice meal, Instead Had a waitress who didn't know many details About the meals or what's in the menu. Go to Order drinks off their full list cocktail menu, only to be told they can "probably" only make me one from the list. To top it off it took 15 minutes to make... More

Food was very very average. The pizza my husband ordered looked and tasted worse than a frozen pizza from the supermarket. Really disappointing.

Carbonara was tasty if a little oily. Pizza was fresh. Nothing flash but good for a small beach side restaurant. Would not hesitate to dine there again.

Great pizza and pasta. The pizza was on a light base, not greasy at all. The pasta was a little watery but comparable to similar small italian restaurants.
