We dined at Portofino last night; having been there many times during our getaways from the cold of Boston. If you are looking for good Italian fare at reasonable prices (by Bermuda standards) you should visit this family run restaurant. The waiters are friendly and accommodating as was the chef. Although chicken Marsala was not on the menu they happily made it for one of us. We will return on our next visit to Bermuda

Casual Italian restaurant, i had tagiolini and my wife fettuccini alfredo, both pastas well made and very tasty. Octopus as an appetizer very tender. Good point all the waiters are italians, not something common anymore, and definitely a touch of authenticity for an Italian restaurant overseas. They were attentive and smiley. thanks to the staff that made an effort to make us the Alfredo pasta which is not in the menu. 17% is added to the bill. Recommended if you looking for an authentic Italian restaurant!

I had an anniversary dinner here and it was very good. The server was very knowledgeable and was really helpful I was a bit disappointed that there was no table setting this would have added to the decor of the restaurant. I had the Bermuda fish chowder to start the tuna tartare for a second course and lamb chops for my main... The soup was very appetizing however the tuna tartare and the lamb chops not sure if it was the sauce but it was a bit salty, I would also recommend getting new steak knives as it was cutting into my lamb. We had also called ahead to make the reservations which I had stated that I have a shellfish allergy but on arrival no one had asked so that was a downfall for me as well.but all in all it was a very good experience I would definitely return to give you guys a second try. The icing on the cake was when the server sang for us which was really nice.

Everything about this restaurant is perfect. The wait staff is extremely helpful, the ambience is lovely, the wine selection is fabulous and the food is OFF THE CHARTS DELICIOUS. (The children's menu will satisfy even the pickiest of patrons.) This restaurant has legit, homemade Italian dishes that are creations of savory perfection.

We have been going to this restaurant for many years. This year we were disappointed in the food compared to what it has been in the past! Food seemed lesser quality! Spaghetti and meatballs less than average And certainly did not taste like authentic Italian fare. However, the renovations are lovely and more inviting

If you find yourself in Hamilton Bermuda at lunch time with a longing for great Italian food then you have to head to Portofino. They revamped the restaurant within the last 2 years and besides the great decor and the amazing staff... Italian of course, the pasta and pizza is to die for. But... the BEST part of a visit is dessert. Portion sizes aside, these freshly prepared delicious sweet treats will leave your mouth sated and your sweet tooth tingling. As for pizza, if you are not adverse to pineapple on your pizza, try the Hawaiin. Yummy

Wonderful food, warm, caring service. We were treated like VIPs; the chef and owner came to our table to visit and the chef made food recommendations for our taste preferences. And the food was delectable! 5/5 stars, highly recommend.

The outside dining space is on a busy road so traffic noise could spoil a meal for four. Inside service was a bit on the slow side but the quality of the food made up for it. Shared some starters and had no room for a dessert after a very tasty fish dish.

The food was great but the service was super slow. We had to wait to be seated and we waited another 30 minutes to someone to get our order. The food came fairly quickly. We ordered a 65$ bottle of rose wine, so I hoped it was a premium wine. But when the waiter came and I saw it was a screw cap and not a cork I almost cried. I didn’t send it back but I was disappointed that my 65 dollars were lost. My garlic bread with was supposed to be a starter came after the main course. It was delicious tough.

I stayed in Hamilton for two months between February and April 2021. Portofino was consistently the best restaurant I visited. The food is delicious, fresh and fantastically presented, and the staff obviously enjoy their roles and the ambience they have created (many thanks for your welcome). The pistachio encrusted tuna was a particular highlight (pictured). Can’t recommend the restaurant highly enough.

Discovered this restaurant on our last evening in Bermuda, shame we didn't find it sooner as it would have become a firm favourite. The food is excellent and full of authentic flavours. The inclusion of Pickled red onions with Tricolore is inspired and the flavours of the Luciana (seafood tagliatelle with lobster) were fantastic. Ambience, location and incredibly friendly staff added to an already amazing experience. Thoroughly recommend it and this restaurant alone would bring us back to Bermuda!

The service was excellent, very attentive, very polite and helpful. The food was very good - one meal was gnocchi which was excellent, if not a little bit too rich. The other meal was pizza, very strong flavours, which were a little overpowering, but still tasty - the dough was a little bit bread-like in parts, but still good. Overall a very good place to eat!

Portofino is known for good Italian cuisine and to put a Bermudian touch for restaurant weeks 2024 would be interesting. The starter I chose was the fishcake and it was amazing. Good texture, seasonings and the onion chutney were brilliant. The meatballs for the second course was predictable but good solid food. The dessert was a twist on tiramisu but was definitely a winner. The restaurant was quiet this evening and the service was quick and the staff made you feel special.

Just like a great Italian restaurant I might find in New York, Portofino has the old family Italian restaurant charm. The guys that work the tables are knowledgeable and experienced. The food is fabulous. Can't believe we found this gem.
