“spontaneous dinner”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

We stumbled upon this restaurant while wandering around the street fair. Our group of 12 all enjoyed their meals, wine and outdoor seating- a nice change from the absurdly cold, stuffy island restaurants.
The wine selections were ample and the prices were quite fair. The items most loved - lobster ravioli, veal dish, lasagna and kids cheese pizzas. The kids pasta was inedible and the sauce had a peculiar flavor.

Fun, casual dinner spot.

“Come here for Canned or Frozen food”
Reviewed June 22, 2012

Dont bother wondering where you prefer to sit, because they don't care. Meatballs are straight from a can. If they are going to use Sauce from a jar they should at least use something good. Chicken Parm tasted like a frozen dinner. For same price you can eat at much better establishments.

“great Service”
Reviewed June 9, 2012

I used to live in Bermuda and left the island 6 years ago. On my recent visit Portofino was at the top of my list of places to eat. The food was still wonderful but the Staff at this restaurant are by far the best on the island. Prices are pretty typical for Bermuda (more expensive than the states) but the warm fuzzy feeling is there and Dessert is a must. The Tiramisou (spelling)is to die for. If you are adventuresome try Art Mels spicy dicey for fish sandwichand amazing fries and the Speciality Inn--diner food (no alcohol) for places real Bermudians go.
