“Friendly family restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

With high ambition is this italien inspirated restaurant well worth a visite. The patron and his wife will do their best to make you comfortable. Moderate- and well worth prices. If you visit Gothenburg as a tourist you can take the tram and walk 2-300 meters.

“A positive surprise, a 3+ or 4- Italian restaurant with modern style and very good pizzas too”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

Spent a few nights at nearby hotel Nya Varvet Studios. First evening we wanted to have a meal outside of hotel and their restaurant and had found Portofino when checking up regional paper Göteborgs Posten as the only restaurant in the area with a recommendation. So, we went there. it is a 10 min walk (towards the square with shops and not far from the tram stop) from the hotel. Restaurant is located in the outskirts of a small shopping center and probably built in the eighties or nineties. It looks modern and not very fancy. It is run by a couple, devoted to serving true Italian food. And they do! Pizzas from a wood oven, but pizzas with a modern twist. They are superthin and crispy, with some untraditional, more modern "toppings", and not too heavy on the tomato sauce or cheese. Pizzas where big, but thanks to them being thin, not too much for one person. Actually among the best pizzas we've had this year in Sweden! Shared a bottle of a surprisingly good Italian IGT wine, priced at 2-3 times the Systembolaget price (which is fairly normal at restaurants in Sweden).Tried also to check in what the rest of the guests (some locals, and some from the same hotel we stayed at) ate, and it all looked good. A local couple seem to be celebrating something, and had chosen this restaurant to do so, with drinks and a three- or four course meal accompanied by wine. For further details, please refer to the homepage of the regional paper, where we found the restaurant. If in the area, we would definitely go there again. Had we had the possibility, we would give this a 3+ or a 4-.
