Portofino's Restaurant is one of the last traditional family run Italian restaurants remaining in the city centre. Set in a magnificent Victorian Grade II listed building, a fittingly opulent setting to enjoy the fresh traditional Italian delicacies.
We have a lovely ladies lunch here every month and have never had a bad meal or disappointing service. I have brought visitors to the city here and they are always amazed at the beautiful interior and the good value set menus.
Lovely staff, great food and really good value for money.
Lovely building, quick service, good food and has a monthly offer emailed ( I had free potato skins)
Wonderful service and even better food
We had a beautiful meal and we will definitely return next time we visit Newcastle.
Poor presentation especially with starters. Unfortunately this gives a poor representation of what the quality of the food will be which is a shame as the food is very good. of More care and attention required plating food.
Visited before the theatre. Prompt and friendly service. Excellent food with plenty of choice. If it hadn't been for the show I'm sure we would have stayed a bit longer just to soak up the atmosphere (and have a dessert).
Regular visitor to Portofinos never disappointed.
Very bust restaurant but service and standard of food not compromised
Had the lunchtime special menu. Portion size was excellent. For three courses only £11.00. Certainly not disappointed with food. Each course delicious. Apple crumble to die for. One of my favourite restaurants with amazing surroundings.
Good food in a great setting!
Traditional Italian food and attentive professional service. Very good value for money.
Staff were polite and attentive without being overbearing. it was my partners birthday and when they brought the pudding and sang happy birthday! we had a lovely night.
Always an excellent choice - the food is great quality & good value for money. We love the decor & the atmosphere here and the staff are always welcoming & willing to adapt the menu if necessary. We would highly recommend this gem of a restaurant.
Tried to get in last year but very busy so booked in advance and glad I did. Booking recommended on busy weekends like the Great North weekend.
Excellent little spot found by accident a few years back, I never miss it now when travelling for the Great North Run.
Lovely restaurant, great food and service
Always great friendly service and food even when they are bombed out on GNR weekends
Our first place to visit on the Great North Run weekend.
Great meal once again service & quality of food excellent even though restaurant extremely busy
As always we enjoyed an excellent meal with great service
On the eve of the Great North Run the restaurant was packed but the food and service were excellent . Great pasta, good wine and very reasonably priced. I would definitely book again.
Lovely food, great service even though the restaurant was very busy with it being GNR weekend the staff still did an excellent job.
We visited on the Great North Run weekend. I made sure I booked online back in February as I knew that it would be busy. We had a reminder email the day before. On arrival we were slightly early so had to wait for the table to be ready. The restaurant was very very busy and the staff were well organised. The food was amazing. I had gnocchi and bolognese sauce which I throughly recommend. Very good value for money. Will be back next year. Added bonus.... the building is fantastic and a nice little bit of information on the menu about the history.
