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.
Excellent food at reasonable prices. Staff very friendly and service was good.
Love Portofino's. Food & Service is always fabulous. The ambience of the restaurant is fantastic. Just love everything about this place.
Excellent meal and service
Interesting building, nice atmosphere, lovely food and drink reasonably priced and smiley capable staff
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 😊
Lovely food. Service was excellent, very friendly. Nice surroundings.
We enjoyed a lovely meal. Staff were friendly and helpful. Would recommend
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.
Always lovely food every time we go.
Excellent restaurant and service.
Excellent food, service and value for money as always
Really good choice on the menu, excellent food
Lovely meal, tempura prawns to start were wonderful and meat pizza for main was acceptable
Food was great but too busy every on a Saturday night. We had table booked but people allowed to queue bothering people eating.
Cannot recommend the restaurant highly enough--would return without a moments hesitation----
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.
You must try this restaurant. Excellent in every way
Excellent food and not rushed to eat it even though very busy
Service was sometimes a little slow but was friendly. Offering a drink on arrival would help.
First class - as always!!!
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.
the atmosphere was very good & despite being busy the service was very prompt & efficient. Will certainly be returning in the near future.
