“Dinner for two”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We had a reservations for 7.30pm, but went in around 7.15pm the hostess was happy to let us take our table early. Our waitress was very attentive and polite. We enjoy starters, which we shared. The mains were so yummy. We had byo, so this made it a very cheap night out. Great service and food.

“A great experience.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2013

We ate at Portofino with another couple. We were both celebrating our wedding anniversaries. We were greeted in a friendly manner by the hostess. The table had been nicely set with a bottle of wine and chocolates from a family member sending best wishes. (Good thing about this restaurant it is BYO). The waitress provided excellent service and the food was outstanding. The Italian atmosphere and flavours were evident.

“A little gem found by chance”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

We discovered this restaurant as we walked past in search of another restaurant. Couldn't find it, so went back here as the smells and the fact that it was busy (a good sign) drew us in. Portofino did not disappoint. Our dishes were all wonderful and all the customers around us seem to have the same experience. Friendly staff and although it was busy we were served quite fast. Will definitely return here when next in New Plymouth!
