Excellent restaurant in Macau

We definitely will visit again. They have an excellent choice of wine. The food was from very good to wonderful. My lamb chops were almost perfect. Service was also very nice. One question though, is there another door we could enter without passing by the casino?😆

We found details of the Portofino restaurant before we left the UK and booked a table to have dinner on our last night in Macau. We really enjoyed our meal in this restaurant and found all of the staff that we came across really friendly. The restaurant is light, bright and well decorated and had a great ambience. I enjoyed...

We dined at Portofino during our stay at The Venetian in April 2015 and it was one of the best meals we've had in a while. Even though the restaurant is technically within the resort, walking up to it from our room was like walking outside in the city given how vast The Venetian is. So, that was nice. The... More

We booked a table when arriving at the hotel on the friday night as we thought we would have a low key dinner, in fact it turned out to be anything but.

The restaurant is in the Venetian Hotel located in Cotai Area across the bridge from Macau. There are a lot of good Italian restaurants in Macau and I have tried a number of them, but the food quality and service here is probably about the best. If you have not tried Gnocchi, which are Italian dumplings made with potatoes and... More

Don't know if the regular fare is better. We had the promotional lunch of 148 per person where salad, pastas and pizzas were on offer.

Excellent food and service. Pizzas and pasta were my favourite dishes! Can become a little pricy when you factor in wines and deserts so for those on more of a budget I recommend coming for the daily lunch buffet. Romantic outdoor seating available overlooking the pool and hotel gardens. Definitely worth a visit.
