Am writing this before the bill comes. Correcto so far, for what it is. There's something about red gingham tablecloths: they may be a cliche but they lift the spirits. Good service on a quiet evening. Hotel lobby jazz in the background, yuck, but somehow...More

We had lunch at El Portico and were happy with the food, we both had pasta and it was fresh and tasty, a carafe of house wine was ok and the service was reasonable, but it was close to end of service so the place...More

Incredibly disappointed in my main meal, I ordered Gamberi in Padella (loosely translates to Prawns or shrimp in the Pan) They arrived completely in tact, shells, heads and all. Smelling suspicious from the moment they arrived. I began to shell them and the unpleasant smell...More

Ok perhaps Portofino in general is a tourist trap, but honestly this has to be the worst food I have ever eaten in Italy. The owner was constantly playing on his mobile phone and there was not one Italian chef in the kitchen, not that...More

You'll find the service, food and view near perfect. As in most of Italy the food is plenty, good and very inexpensive. Nice wine selection for a pizzeria.
