Hello, Went here with a friend on Saturday night and had a wonderful time. The food was good too but the service even better. Would come again and hopefully work my way throu the dessert menu.....well the rest of the menu too. Would like to thank Chris our waiter for the wonderful service. Cheers buddy!
I can't rate this restaurant highly enough. EVERY time I have eaten there, I have received amazing service, absolutely DELICIOUS food and the dessert menu is to die for. I have taken friends, family and colleagues to Portofino and many have returned several times since.
Unfortunately I wasn't very impressed with this restaurant. My sister-in-law took us here for my birthday dinner. The staff were friendly upon arrival and seated us on the top part of the restaurant. Two of us ordered a pasta dish each and one the mussels. Honestly for an Italian restaurant located within the Italian precinct of Norton St the food was very average. The mussels were very small and the sauce was literally cooked pasta sauce - no herbs or anything. The side dish of bread was that hard that I thought I was going to lose a tooth. Although the pasta dishes were quite nice in flavour for the price we expected them to a be a little bigger than the entree serving that we got. I can't fault the service as the staff were very friendly and attentive but the food unfortunately is very mediocre for the price.
