Hadn't booked, but just about fitted two of us in on Saturday night at 7.30. Excellent atmosphere, lots of noise as befitting an Italian! Reasonably priced with attentive staff. Good menu. cannelloni was excellent as was the seafood tagliatelli. House red palatable.

On arrival we were in awe of the beautiful original decoration, staff were very friendly and seated us very quickly, the restaurant was very quiet as it was early evening on a Sunday bank holiday weekend. We had a special starter of sardines which were lovely but £5 for 2 sardines was a little pricy. We both ordered pizza for... More

Love portofinos! Cheap and cheerful Italian but they have a good range of dishes and offer a different variety to other Italians I think. I am vegan but they offer a wide range of vegetarian dishes that can easily be make vegan. My personal favourites are the tomato garlic bread and spaghetti Luca-pasta in an olive oil, garlic and chilli... More

Popped in here on a Sunday for lunch as we had not been for years. They do a lunch time special for £9.95 for 2 courses with a good selection as well as the full menu. The food is home cooked Italian food. What more could you ask for? The service was efficient with out being rushed. Set in a... More

We met up with friends in Newcastle and decided to book Portofino for our meal out. The stunning decor and gorgeous atmosphere was a wonderful start to a lovely meal. I had the risotto which was delicious. Service was good, several generations of the family all taking turns to attend to us. Lots of banter and lively conversation between servings.... More

Called in for a lunch on a Saturday. The place was fairly busy but the food, service and value for money scored a hit with my wife and I. Will definitely be back in the future next time we are in Newcastle.

I've tried other restaurants in Newcastle and sadly for the price and quality Portofino provide, the others don't match. It's a family run place and not a chain and here is what you won't get at Portofino........ 1. A disinterested student,with a head set on serving you. 2. A long wait for your food. 3. A feeling of being ripped... More
