good choice of food. Excellent value. The staff are very attentive and make sure your needs are well catered for. The drinks are not too expensive.

“Nice”
Reviewed December 29, 2012

I have visited here twice with my partner and his family – if I had written a review after my first visit I would’ve given a 2 star review; however, my second experience was much better. – The staff were much more accommodating and friendly and the food had improved.
Both visits were at lunch time and the menu is reasonably priced and the portions are generous. I have visited a lot of Italian restaurants and have had much worse and much better food at other establishments – maybe you get what you pay for? Portofino’s is clean, the staff are friendly and for a quick bite to eat at lunch time it is recommended. There is a small choice of wines but most of those on offer are nice.
I cannot say anything bad about this place but the best I can say is that it is nice and good value for money. You will enjoy your meal, you will not be hungry but it might not blow your mind.

“not in a group”
Reviewed December 8, 2012

I have eaten here twice - both times for parties - find meals boring and unimaginative and the atmosphere is too quiet - because its always seems empty!!!!.
Would maybe only eat hear if they were the only establishment open in Hanley and I was desperate
