Returned last evening with my old school friend Kevin and received a warm welcome. Enjoyed excellent antipasto, tuna penne and smooth house red. Service friendly and attentive but not intrusive. Splendidly ornate former banking hall makes great setting. This is a real gem of a restaurant.

We visit Portofino for lunch on a Saturday. We hadn't booked but we're able to get a good table. The staff were pleasant and one in particular gave us some history of the building and the restaurant which was very interesting. Food was lovely and portions perfect for the kids. Will definitely be going back!

Found this nice restaurant; didn't wait long to be seated even though had no booking. Staff were great and the food was really good and reasonably priced for an Italian restaurant. Would really recommend this restaurant!

Went with my wife to Newcastle for our tenth wedding anniversary. I booked the Portofino restaurant for dinner which was excellent. We arrived shown to our table where waited a card for our anniversary. The food is absolutely fantastic and I had the best T-Bone steak ever. This is a fabulous restaurant.

We have just returned to Britain after 20+ years in Italy and were very wary of trying Italian food here but Portofinos does a very fine Cannelloni at a reasonable price for the centre of Newcastle! We'll be going back to try some more of the menu.

Visited on a Saturday lunchtime. Food poor. Soup was broccoli and cheese and tasted sour. I would question the suitability of cheese used! Husbands meal had a lemon wedge on it and when I pointed out to waiting staff that it had the zest removed he just shrugged and went 'oops'. Hardly gives you confidence in the operation of the...

Hi ClairandAl_8 I'm sorry for your bad experience at our restaurant. The sourness of the soup will be the blue cheese, which has a very strong flavour which is not for everyone! I apologise for the staffs behaviour, and will find out why the lemon wedge was without the zest. I sincerely hope you will try us again in the... More
