Three of us went to celebrate one of our number leaving. A large restaurant there are several options for sitting depending on the level of air con that you want. The menu is extensive with all the usual Italian dishes on offer. Cooking quality was...high and the food was attractively presented. Service was very good with plenty of staff who spoke several languages. An enjoyable meal with the pizzas the start of the show.More

You can tell the staff is well trained. They follow a pattern - including serving olive oil, balsamic and parmesan onto each of the small dishes which while very nice, takes away each individuals preference in how they would combine each of these ingredients, and...it takes a long time. The bread is excellent. We had seconds. Our table ordered pastas, lasagna, a chicken dish and pizza. All the food was well presented and tasty. It is the most expensive restaurant I have been to in Haiti. Maybe one could argue it’s worth it. What I did not appreciate was the way they calculated the bill at the end of the night. The dishes are priced in gourdes but the bill arrived in US dollars. The exchange they used to convert gourdes to dollars was not in favor of the client. Then, since we all live and work in Haiti we had to convert back to gourdes. It was a mess and ended up increasing the price of each meal. When you are paying $50 a meal x 6 persons, it makes a difference. This should change.More

There aren't a lot of places to do something different to celebrate birthdays. For my son's 9th birthday, we took him to Portofino's with a few of his friends. They loved the climbing wall, play area and the pizza.

I tried this restaurant during my stay in Haiti. Very few restaurants could offer such good food in the area and you wont be disappointed. Great host and excellent choices of wine.

Anyone who has been to Port-au-Prince will attest that it is very rare to find a one-stop dining experience where you find quality and value for money. So here we go....after numerous verbal opinions and critique...a group of work mates and I finally found what...we ALL were looking for...excellent service, fresh food, relaxing ambiance, safe and secure location. Let's cut to the chase...a variety of pizza with fresh ingredients, as though the chef was attuned to individual palates, oxtail 'Osumbuko' that was as tender as a baby's' lips, for the light-eaters', risotto alla marinara (x 2) for the authentic Italian food-lovers....we were all smiles across the table and to top it up a reasonably-priced bottle of red wine...well done to the Team!More

After having tried several places in Haiti for pizza, I think that Portofino makes the best pies in Haiti. I have tried their caprese, oxtail and their meat lovers pizza and all had a nice crust and good ingredients -- although they can be a...bit salty, overall very good. Although I have not tried the pasta, many of my friends also have commented on how good their pastas are. I also like the environment in their sit-down restaurant and find the waiters to be very good and the service (including delivery or sitdown or takeaway) to be very quick. Finally, their gelato is very good, too! (you can even find it at caribbean). I also appreciate how professional this establishment is. I had some issues with my most recent delivery (although the order arrived quickly, they did not bring change as I had asked them too because i only had large bills). The driver arrived without change, so I was frustrated. Long story short, after informing portofino about the issue, they offered a very professional apology and offered a free desert on my next visit :) I was impressed by the level of service and how they handled the situation! I will definitely continue ordering from Portofino!More

Had a great meal with friends. Good service and food. I had a nice New York Iced Tea, along with a fresh salad and Steak. The think I know about Haiti since I have been there over 70 times is the food is wonderful and...fresh. Portofino met my usual expectations.More

Portofino offers a great menu, great consistent service and one of the most reliable experiences in Port-au-Prince. With a very large menu and many options available there is something for everyone. They also recently appear to have installed Digicel Business Wifi and it's a great...place to go and download and catch up when necessary. It always works which is not something you can always find in Port au Prince! Probably the best Pizza in town. Never fails and a must do in town.More
