Stumbled across this restaurant today, after trying to have lunch at several others. First one we went to was closed, second one had no eftpos, third one had no high chairs or kids menu & awful service. So happy we found Portorosa!!! We approached the restaurant & began reading the menu which was on display at the entry. Such a great idea to have the menu on display like that, so would be patrons are able to see if the menu suits them before entering and being seated, only to find out otherwise. Right away the waiter outside saw us and greeted us warmly. My husband asked if they had high chairs and the waiter very cheerfully said yes. We decided to go in, the waiter asked where we would like to be seated, showed us to a table and went and got a high chair for our little one straight away. A waitress warmly greeted us and gave us menus and shortly after took our drink orders. We ordered our meals and they all arrived to the table together and so quickly! The waitress brought us a cold bottle of water to the table, without us having to request one. We were so impressed by the service and all of the meals were absolutely beautiful. My son ordered the pizza tropicana from the children's menu and said that it was the best pizza that he's ever eaten. The three of us had to help him finish it, as the serving size was so generous. We all agreed with my son, it was the best pizza we had ever eaten too! The ham on the pizza was so finely shaven - beautiful! So much better than the thick chunky ham that you get on pizzas elsewhere. And the pineapple pieces were large, juicy and so flavor some! The wood fired base was amazing! The spaghetti bolognaise and neopolitana pasta dishes were fantastic-very flavorful and delicious. My husband said that his steak sandwhich was the same. Even the bowl of chips that we ordered were lovely, with no burnt unedible ones in it - which is always normally the case elsewhere. The chips were golden and perfectly cooked. We were all so impressed with the service and food at this restaurant. The staff really are wonderfull, so warm, friendly and welcoming. We loved that we were dinning in an Italian restaurant, with italian music playing in the background, we got to choose from an huge selection of authentic italian dishes on the menu and be served by Italian wait staff. My only regret is not ordering desert, the desert menu looked anazing! Credit to the owners / management for running their business with exceptional staff. Can't wait to return and can't recommend Portorosa highly enough!!! :)
