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.
My friend and I meet up once a month at portofinos and have done for more than a year. We always have great service the staff are so helpful and friendly and the food is really good.
I visited with 2 friends staff wonderful and the best mint choc aero cheesecake in the world.
Lovely building, great service and food at reasonable prices
What to say when everything was good. Only problem is the steep staircase to the loos, but I don't know what you could do about that.
We booked a table via website and arrived a little earlier. However table was found quickly. Food was lovely and recommend the special garlic bread to compliment the tasty meal. I’ve scored a 4 for service as we had to wait for our bill but the restaurant was busy and I think they forgot. Will definitely return
Overall food was good however, when presented with the dessert menu the waiter advised me to order at the bar. As advised, I went to the bar for a rude guy to say ‘go somewhere else’ and tell his colleague ‘if you don’t know, you don’t know’ (great customer service) i then went to the friendly waitress who served me originally and she apologised I’d been wrongly advised and walked back to my table with me and took my order. Other than that, fast serving and good meal. Would return but not necessarily in a hurry.
Always come here with my husband and when friends visit we always bring them here The service and food are excellent

Lovely evening for my friends birthday! Our table was ready even though we were early. Nothing was a problem. Food was very tasty and reasonably priced. The waitress even brought over a free dessert for the birthday girl. Thank you!

Fantastic food and service. Our food came out lovely and hot. Excellent restaurant with a good amount of choice on the menu.
The staff were brilliant at being able to accomodate an additional diner on our reservation, despite the extremely busy restaurant due to a concert in the town. Food was excellent and ambiance wonderful
Been here a few times and the food gets better everytime. Would recommend it to everyone can't wait to go back. Thankyou
Fantastic restaurant in the centre of Newcastle. Party of 12 looked after very well on a Friday. Even made something not on the menu when asked! Prices are very reasonable. Food delicious! Highly recommend!
Lovely food ,friendly staff and great service in beautiful surroundings.
Excellent! I’ve left you a review on trip advisor also. Our waitress was lovely but at the end of the meal I found I didn’t have any cash with me as I thought I had, so was unable to leave a tip. Please pass on my apologies for this, as service was excellent 👍🏻
Good food good venue good prices
Very friendly and attentive staff.
