“Beautiful location, good food but not exceptional”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Never having eaten at Portofino we decided to try it a few nights ago. The ocean side location was spectacular, especially with the lights of Manzanillo and the cargo ships waiting to enter the harbour. The inside of the restaurant is like an Italian hall.

The service was good, as was the wine list. There are some creative menu items, particularly the bruschetta. The Sicilian fish was tasty; the pasta marinara was overpriced and underwhelming. The clams in this dish were tiny. Overall, a pretty good experience, but Poco Pazza is much better.

Excellent atmosphere overlooking the beach/ocean. Food was dynamite too. Pizza we had was called the 'mix' and amazing.

“Wonderful food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2012

The fish in the Sicialian preparation was delicious. My wife had the pasta in tomato sauce and said it was fantastic. All the people at Toscano were at the wrong restaurant!
