We have booked the restaurant after reading good reviews on the trip advisor website so we were looking forward to it. I ordered fish on the grill and my partner chose Pasta Parmegiano. We waited more than a hour, no meal, and worse still, there was now only one cook left in the kitchen with his back at the working... More

I didn't regret it, totally in love looking how they make and serve the Parmigiana Pasta, it tastes simply amazing! My boyfriend took a pizza and it was... More

After a day out and about in North Holland (Hoorn-Medemblik-Enkhuizen-and Hoorn again), we decided to indulge in an Italian dinner. We were not disappointed! Portofino is an excellent Italian/Sardegnan restaurant which sits on a pleasant canal just off the cente of the small city of Hoorn. We'd reserved a pleasant round table just big enough for the two of us.... More

We had a very pleasant visit to Portofino during a three day trip to Hoorn. We particularly liked the asparagus gratinee and the salad with ham and blue cheese. By the time the pizza came, we really had had enough for dinner, so we took most of it back to our hotel. The staff was warm and friendly and made... More

Portofino is a fairly small Italian restaurant in a central location in Hoorn. I was taken there in a group from work and had a very pleasant evening. I would happily return. I ordered the Scaloppine alla Gorgonzola and it was excellent. Other dishes ordered by our group included Snails, Calzone, Saltimbocca and Cannelloni and they all look great too.... More

Portofino is a Italian restaurant with great pizzas and nice dishes. The pizzas are always great, the wine is nice. But ... you should try the pasta, especially flambe with Parmigiano Reggiano. Best pizza place in Hoorn

At the Portofino restaurant you can enjoy the aromas and flavors Italian. The environment is small and well arranged. The service is excellent and the staff is always helpful and smiling. The best courses are those based on fish. Council spaghetti with clams. Very good are also the appetizing dishes finished in the Parmigiano Reggiano. there is a good selection... More
