“Best value for your money in town”
Reviewed August 24, 2009

Live in the area and have tried numerous local restaurants. This restaurant could charge much more for the quality of food it provides. Kudos to the owner and staff for offering a great atmosphere coupled with excellent service and a delicious menu.

The hostess was very attractive too which never hurts!

“Loved Portabella”
Reviewed August 12, 2009

Excellent menu and well priced wines available by the glass, 1/2 litre or bottle. A cozy spot on the main street in Picton. Be sure to make a reservation to make sure they have room. The service was excellent, friendly, professional and prompt. I had a beautiful filet of Salmon and my husband had the Fettucine Alfredo with Chicken and loved it. We will certainly be back next trip to the county. Prices were reasonable compared to others in the County - entrees were about $18 compared to $28 at other hot spots in the County. We will certainly be back, the service was so nice and the Manager was lovely. What a gem! They are known for their Portabella Pasta so I'll try that next time.

“great meal”
Reviewed July 4, 2009

We recently enjoyed a lunch at the Portabella and the food was extremely fresh and tastey. The service was prompt and the decor interesting. Our family had food allergies and they were extremely helpful and careful. It was a great experience overall.

“WOW!!!”
Reviewed July 4, 2009

My husband and I visited this lovely little restaurant on a visit to the County. What a delight!! To our surprise this quaint little place had the best pasta we have ever had (including our own homemade sauce!!) Incredibly friendly staff, we even had a chance to meet and talk to the Owner, he personally came to our table to ensure everything was to our liking!! Very clean and inviting, this little restaurant has it ALL!! Our entire experience at Portabella was delightful. Thankyou Don, and staff for a wonderful meal!!!

“Great dining experience”
Reviewed August 6, 2008

Though it is highly recommended, we hadn't made reservations to dine at Portabella. We dropped by early (5:00 p.m.) to enquire about the possibility of accommodating our group of 4 that particular evening. As expected, they were fully booked. We were pleasantly surprised when they offered to accommodate us before the dinner crowd. We were there but a short while when the restaurant started filling up and those without reservations were being turned away. We were grateful for having had the opportunity to enjoy a deliciouis dinner surrounded by a lovely decor. Our beautiful server added to our experience. She was friendly and very helpful - regrettably we did not ask her her name - she had a beautiful smile and very nice silver jewellery from Casa Luna in Bloomfield). We will certainly be back again and will remember to make reservations to avoid being disappointed.
