Love everything. The menu is vast, the best selection you'll find in New Plymouth. Mouth watering.

I've been to this restaurant couple of times.. After my first time I wasn't very impressed with the speed of the service.. (5 years ago)... however I have to say.... It has improved so much.... that now.. myself and my partner go quite often. We absolutely love it. I normally have RISOTTO ALLA PESCATORA (approx NZD25) and I love it. Service is always good and. My partner tried CARPACCIO DI SALMONE AFFUMICATO and she also love it. Dishes are good size. This restaurant is also BYO.... quite convenient.... If you come to Taranaki, make sure you go out for dinner to Portofino. The price for 2 people will be around NZD 70...if you bring your wine..

menu needs revamping and someone called service needs to be employed

Always good food, good service. Disadvantaged by a lack of views cf some other restaurants in New Plymouth, but dependable, never had a dud meal there
