Although I have not visited Portofino for a while now, I have been several times in the past, and was always pleased with the quality and flavour of the food, (usually pizza) and always found the price to be very reasonable as well.

Couldn't complain at all.

We have now been to this restaurant on several occasion and the food quality even in happy hour is excellant serving quality italian food. We had 2 pasta dishes a pizza and a bottle of wine and costed 32 pounds in total good value. The building itself is beautiful inside and the staff are top notch. The only down side is the restaurant can be a little chilly in the winter

Thought we'd ordered from the specials, but one main course was from main menu, wasn't explained to us properly when we ordered, anyway food was nothing special and not very hot, for over £15 per head I won't be going back

As a positive the restaurant looks absolutely amazing with its ornate tiling. Therest of the evening did not live up to this grandeur. The most notable frustration was the speed at whoch food was served. I have no problem with efficiency, but the starter had arrived withing 3 minutes of ordering, as soon as the fork was put down the plates were removed and the main came straight out. This does not give the impression of a carefully prepared and tended to meal. The meal itself was also average at best. Itbwas fine but lacked anything to bring you back to it. The caprese insalata was served with underripe tomatoes straight from the fridge, the pasta seemed thrown together. All in all it was lacking and could offer so much more. To give an indication of timings, we left 35 mnutes after arriving, having eaten three courses. As such not the most relaxing of eating experiences
