Deborah looked after us all night, the meatballs starter was delicious and the crab linguine was absolutely gorgeous I thought the menu was a little bit uninspiring but the quality and taste of the food was superb

Visited Newcastle for the weekend and chose Portofinos on a whim as we fancied pizza, and what a good choice we made! We were delighted to realise we'd booked in time for happy hour. A pizza and a pint of peroni each and a Garlic bread to share for about £15 each. The pizzas were delicious, lovely thin bases, the atmosphere was great, service was quick and the staff were all lovely and attentive but not in your face (mostly left you to it but were on the ball when you looked like you needed something!) Top marks from me. Highly recommend and we will be going again when we're back in Newcastle 😊

Think it was a bad night! Seemed short staffed and food not to good this time. Lasagne was burnt and dry and ended up being taken off the bill. Hopefully back to high standards on our next visit.

Really enjoyed the Italian afternoon tea on our visit. Very pleasant and attentive staff. A quiet afternoon with few diners so the atmosphere was rather subdued but the interior of the restaurant is fabulous. Will definitely return for an evening meal.

Food was great but too busy every on a Saturday night. We had table booked but people allowed to queue bothering people eating.

The food was very good and reasonably priced. Only bad point was the half hour wait for a table even though we had booked. Will go back again

The only negative feedback I have is that we were rushed to finish our wine after our meal as the restaurant was busy , we only had the table for about 1 hour.

Service was sometimes a little slow but was friendly. Offering a drink on arrival would help.

Very enjoyable lunch. Staff very pleasant, service very good and food nicely cooked. The only criticism is that the prices for the Happy Hour are quite expensive. On previous visits the prices seemed more competitive with other Italian restaurants in the area.
