Just had another gorgeous meal at Portofino's in New Brighton. It has to be the best Italian restaurant on the Wirral.

The Restaurant is quite large, but sectioned off, making it feel more intimate and cosy. It has rustic charm, tastefully decorated in relaxing colours. Staff were helpful and friendly. Pasta was perfect, cheesecake divine :-) Look forward to next visit

I have visited this restaurant several times now , thinking it must have been an "off" night. Now I think it'ss just bland food. Pull your socks up Portofino -add some flavour.

Had a delicious two course meal with prosecco and then vino. Not cheap but really not expensive either, particularly considering how good food is. Food really was tasty, absolutely delicious. The owner attentive, service good & friendly. The place did not disappoint, would highly recommend and can't wait to visit again!!

Went with my wife on valentines night. although it was a reduced menu the choice still catered for almost everyone. Quality of the meal was as good as always and the the service was to match. May have been a little pricey but all in all a very pleasant experience

Booked an early table for a midweek family get together and had a fabulous meal. I had 2 starters and a desert which were all superb accompanied by well trained and very welcoming staff. Ok so the food is top notch but I also should add in comfortable seating, low lighting and a lovely atmosphere without obtrusive background music that... More
