Visited as a family party of 10 last night for our son's 21st and the food, service and atmosphere were all brilliant - would definitely recommend. Many thanks for a great night!

I hadn't been to portofinos for a long time with so many restaurants now to choose from in Newcastle. Met a friend for a weekday evening and chose from the set menu which includes all of the pizza and pastas. Great value for money and very attentive happy staff. We will be back but not leave it so long next... More

When travelling alone, it's nice to find a restaurant where you don't feel like a social leper. There were several other blokes doing the "lone sales rep" bit, as well as a few larger groups. Buzzy but not boisterous. Typical Italian menu and some nice specials on the board. The stuffed belly pork was delicious. Great beer on tap. Didn't... More

We visited today during happy hour to get the two courses for 8.95! I have to say it was one of the nicest Italians I have had in Newcastle for a while! I had the carbonara half and half with bolognese pizza (only possible if your friend has the other half), and potato skins to start! The carbonara had bacon... More

Had set menu - 2 courses with 2 glasses of wine - £18 all in. Food was tasty & of good quality. Nothing amazingly new, just good, freshly made Italian food for a reasonable price. Staff were very accommodating, friendly & efficient. No complaints at all. Restaurant itself well presented with lovely decor & not too big, ensuring an intimate... More

Visited during their happy hour which ends 7pm. One course £5.95 which more than satisfied. I had a tasty risotto and my daughter a pizza. Cheerful, friendly and attentive staff. Good buzz in the room - which is stunning! An architectural masterpiece. Would return if the daughter decides on Newcastle Uni !!

We visited Portofinos Restaurant on the eve of the great north after attending the city games, what a great building to have a meal in, made to feel very welcome by the staff, all 4 people in my party left empty plates and all meals very reasonably priced, highly recommend.
