“Typical Italian. Good food & wine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Crisp linen tablecloths and napkins. With most of the patrons Italian we reckoned this would be ideal for lunch. It did not disappoint. Starters of prawns with gran padano and a buffalo mozzarella, basil and tomato were good . The lasagne al forno was very good and plenty of it but the veal in breadcrumbs and truffle shavings was excellent. A bottle of white , a bottle of red scene from a typical Italian restaurant and the boat home was short.

“A Special Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2014

As someone who has visited Bardolino several times there were a couple of restaurants where I preferred to eat dinner,but not any more, Il Portichetto has now topped the list and on my visit to Bardolino earlier this month it became my regular haunt. The food was great, good value for money and the homemadeTiramisu was something rather special - I became a Tiramisu junky and cant wait to return to Bardolino to try it again. The "icing on the cake" to make each visit special were the staff who were all so helpful and friendly particularly Jenny; every restaurant should have someone like her but I doubt that there are many like her around she is a really valuable asset to the restaurant.

Fantastic food, beautiful wine. What more do you want. It says I must write 100 characters. Try the beef fillet with pepper.

“A great find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013 via mobile

Always enjoy the food here. A must to book a table. The fish is very good. Visit this restaurant every time I visit Bardolino. Good selection of food and wine. Minus don't ask for the cheap prosecco it's on tap.

“mmm...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2013

This restaurant was one of the best we have ever been to. Living in NYC my husband and I can be tough critics but hands down I wish we had this place at home! The food was superb as was the service. A bit more expensive than a lot of others but worth every penny. We went back twice! Don't miss this one!
