“really good Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

We've been a few times recently and the food has been consistently good. Really delicious pizza with very thin crispy base so presume they have a proper pizza oven.We've also had good fish dishes. Not tried the puddings as didn't have room. Last time we went with all the family and everyone really enjoyed it.

“Excellent Food and Brilliant Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2012

I hadn't been to Portofino in years but stopped in on a Wednesday a coule of Weeks ago.
Although it was quiet the smell was amazing! we were greated by a young waitress who was attentive throughout our meal but not overbearing. She quickly expalined to us the great midweek offer (starter and a pizza/pasta for £10.50) they have and brought us drinks.
I'm a very fussy vegetarian but was very please to find a good selection of starters avaialble. i had Spinach and Blue Cheese fritters which came with a really good portion of side salad (see photo attached) while my husband had meatballs. To follow we both had Pizza's.
Our meal was fantastic and will be returning shortly, a great place for a quick midweek dinner or a weekend gatering of friends and family.
This place is a hidden gem
