“Decent basic Italian”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2013

Good pasta, large portions, service satisfactory, wine ok but a bit expensive. Sat outdoors noisy due to empty but very loud club with beat music next door. They need to get something done about the noisy neighbours!

“Generous portions, authentic Italian dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

Very lovely Italian restaurant with a wide selection of pasta dishes. Daily specials are probably the best bet, but everything we had was delicious and the prices were quite reasonable for Hamilton. Service was prompt and courteous, and although the restaurant was busy we were not rushed. We'll be back on future visits to Bermuda.

“Favorite Bermuda Italian restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

We've chosen Portofino in Hamilton many times for an excellent Italian meal. It is a bit of Italy in Bermuda. The staff is Italian and the decor in reminiscent of many trotteria's that we've visited in Italy. The menu is large with many typical choices and a number of interesting variations. The food is always consistently good and the service is likewise.
There is a large wine list and they offer cocktails as well. We dined there earlier this week with another couple and everyone was completely pleased with all of their choices to including starters and mains.

“Friendly, fun & lively with a fantastic choice of food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

The Portofino is very easy to find and for a comparatively large restaurant, has an intimate charm. All the staff are friendly and helpful and immediately make you feel very welcome. The food is well prepared, very tasty & authentic, with something for everyone. Nothing seems too much trouble and they take everything in their stride. The scallops in particular, on the specials menu, are superb. There is some outside seating for the finer weather...
An excellant restaurant for all occasions.

“Excellent food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

If you are looking for authentic Italian food at an affordable price then Portofino is a must. This restaurant was highly recommended to us on our first trip to the island. This restaurant has a very strong local clientele which gives added credibility to how good it is. I would highly recommend this restaurant as a must do..
