Good friends from Christchurch were staying at the Viaduct so we chose Portofino to have dinner. We were surprised to get a table as no booking but the Maitre D' found us a table at the rear of the place. Very nice waitress looked after...More

We were a group of 6 who dined here on Saturday night and although we hadn't booked, we were given a table. The service was shocking which was in no way the fault of the poor overworked waiter but because the owner kept allowing people...More

We fancied an Italian dinner and spotted Portofino. It was a busy Thursday evening and we had no booking, but they gave us a great table overlooking the marina. Not too hungry, so no starter, went straight to the main course. I had penne carbonara...More

This restaurant could be so much better than it is, but because it has such a great location, I don't think they bother because they get so much business. The signage on the outside of the restaurant, along with their display menu is peeling and...More
