Pleasant Meal

Dinner for two. Starters were the cauliflower soup and tuna carpaccio. Soup was velvety but lacked taste, perhaps would have been better with more pancetta to liven it up. Tuna was fresh and tasty. Main course was lasagne and linguine with puttanesca. Lasagne was very tasty, not a massive... read more

Went for dinner after a "last minute cancellation". Surprised to find the place half empty when we arrived. Atmosphere was nice and after looking at the extensive menu, we placed our order. That's when the problems started. Just as we started on nibbling on the bread(which was fine) our starter arrived. Baked Oysters, nothing special, a bit salty but overall... More

Light and airy setting with an interesting menu allowing us to be a bit adventurous e.g. Sea urchin and crab. Wait staff attentive and helpful without being intrusive - would definitely recommend.

Went to this restaurant after watching a show, it's almost closing time but they still let us in. After quickly ordered a pizza and a special dish, they send us a generous bread basket and it was yum. The food is generally good and the plate is hot (thats important). Service is very attentive and quick. They close the meal... More

Portofino is located inside the Venetian Macau Resort. We started in the main bar which is located upstairs and happy hour is from 6pm to 9pm we were drinking wine where we received 30% off. The restaurant is located on the same floor and is very well presented, service is excellent especially from Mhae, and has an open kitchen. The... More

My husband and I love it here. Food always fresh, attentive staff, consistent flavours and reasonable pricing. It's inside the Venetian Macau Resort and therefore easy to locate, sign up the Venetian membership (even if you don't play inside the casino) and get at least 10% off the bill which is a plus! We don't have a favourite dish as... More

We went to Portofino at 11pm, very late. We were warned that kitchen closed at 11:45pm. We ordered everything within reasonable time. We haven't finished the starters and they brought the pizza for one of us. There it stayed, getting cold while we finished our clams. I mean, at least the could've kept it in the kitchen until we finished... More

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
