We came on Valentine’s Day and ordered from the regular menu, not the set one. Nice cosy atmosphere but the tables were pushed too close together which made it difficult getting to our table and leaving. The waitresses and waiters kept coming over to see if we were ready to order when we told them we’d like a few more minutes to look at the menu. Also they kept asking us if we had finished our meals when we hadn’t. I ordered a pasta and it could have done with being cooked for a few minutes more (that’s just my preference) but it was still lovely and I enjoyed it. My partner ordered a pizza which upon cutting into we realised they had sent us the wrong one. We told the waitress it was the wrong one and too spicy but she didn’t say anything, that was left un eaten. Over all we didn’t have a fantastic experience and for the price of it we expected more, not to be left hungry and unsatisfied at the end.

I was disappointed I could not get a later booking but you were very busy. Unfortunately this meant my chair kept getting bumped and there was a unfamiliar wait between courses. But still a pleasant experience.

First time to Newcastle in a long time. I was not disappointed with Portofinos. Food was excellent, service was second to none and the atmosphere was very fitting of the restaurant. Many thanks for a lovely experience.

The restaurant was very busy so I don't know if this had anything to do with it but the pizza crusts were stale like they'd been sitting for a while. The muscles and toast was nice but the toast was one thin slice of a baguette barely toasted. All of our meals just didn't look the best. Sorry won't be eating or saying good things about this restaurant

My self and my wife had an AMAZING experience. All the staff and manager were so hospitable (even took into account special requests). The decor of the building, ambience and the welcoming reception. That's not even mention the food. Wow. In Sicily last year and was missing that authentic Italian taste. We were not disappointed. Portofino's delivered from the presentation of the food, to the texture and the taste. Sublime. Fantastico. I would give them 10 stars but only 5 allowed. We will be regular visitors when ever in Newcastle.

First time to this particular restaurant and orignally attracted to it by the arcitecture, which is wonderful (probably not a good way to choose a restaurant!). Some of the feedback I had read said it tended to be a 'pack 'em in' style place, but we didn't find that at all although our visit was during a busy Valentines night. Great food and lovely atmosphere. Will definately go back.
