Good food and friendly people. We had our diner in the garden that was a perfect place. In the middle of Hoorn

We liked this restaurant so much, we went back twice during our week long stay in Hoorn! The staff was wonderful, particularly our friendly and funny waiter, Giacomo! We loved all the food but we all had to have pasta alla parmagiana on our second...outing...amazing! Thank you for the wonderful service and memories!!More

As an Horenees I was very surprised that I found an Italian restaurant so close from where I live. The food was delicious and so it would almost be superflouis to visit Italy because you could dine like a true Italian right here in Hoorn....Thanks for the great night, xxx father and son!More

The problem with this place is that the takeaway side of the business detracts from the restaurant. The starter was fine but the mains still hadn't appeared after 30 mins. It was obvious that our order had been forgotten. Many apologies from the staff but,...it was getting late, so we decided to cut our losses and get the bill. However, the restaurant ignored our several requests for the bill and cooked the meal anyway. We refused to pay for it, paid for the drinks and starter and walked away. The restaurant could have retrieved the situation by offering a discount on the (considerably delayed) main but, sadly, they missed the opportunity.More

Mostly pros with slight and almost unnoticeable (though quite "acute") cons: location is a great plus - situated in a quiet alley with tables on the bank of scenic canal; service is good, waiters are nice and attentive (though you may get the feeling that...they want you to go away as soon as you finish eating so they could have an empty table for another guests); food is delicious (one big flaw here - we were very surprised to find a sharp kitchen knife under the pizza crust... pretty scary); price is definitely acceptable. Overall - if you visit Hoorn, you can boldly go to Portofino (just check if there is nothing hidden under your food before you start eating).More

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 bench busy flicking off the dirt under his nails. We told the staff that we were going to pay for the only drink we each have been offered in an hour of waiting and call it a day. Rude staff replied to us on a high pitch voice that this is how long it takes because it's fish. I know how much time it takes to cook a piece of fish and a bowl of pasta as I work in a restaurant myself. We just paid the bill. We were not hungry anymore. I am dreading to think how much would you have to wait here for a meal on a busy evening. This was on a quiet Sunday evening at 20.00 o'clock and we were the only table in the restaurant. The guests from the other 2 tables left half an hour earlier. We just wanted a piece of fish and a bowl of pasta but don't worry, there's plenty of other restaurants out there who can do it well And be busy. Not happyMore
