I would like to thank all the staff at Portobello for a lovely meal last night. The food was excellent, as was the service. We look forward to visiting again in the near future.

Ok, it was St Valentine's so we were in a romantic mood. The restaurant was decorated with red balloons and looked very festive. We had booked and our name was recognised as we entered and had been greeted with, 'happy valentines'. All the staff were very friendly and chatty and eager to serve. They were knowledgeable about the menu and... More

The food was ok, we were offered garlic bread whilst perusing the menu which was swimming in butter & not to garlicky but this is my personal view. The Merlot was served at room temperature and very good. Starters The Funghi di Tasto was a bit on the wet side and made the toasted ciabatta soggy, this was not heled... More

I went here last night, I was expecting good things but unfortunately the initial drinks order wasn't what I expected, my girlfriend and I decided to share a bottle of wine and seeing as I was an Italian restaurant I thought it would be nice to order a bottle of chianti priced at £19 when the bottle of wine arrived...

Wonderful service, varied menu options, superb ambience - what's not to like. In addition we had the personal atention of Becky who effortlessly moves around all the tables making sure that your expectations are exceeded. Becky is a star, which complements all the other excellent features mentioned beforehand.

We went last Saturday as a birthday treat from my father in law. The food was superb without exception across three courses for four of us. The staff were attentive and helpful without being in the way. A great night and one we will repeat in the near future. I don't know if the owners read this but if you... More

This restaurant has amazing food, it's clearly fresh and they make it to order with amendments as you like. However...... It is such a shame that it needs modernising, the entrance floor, the entrance door, the restaurant floor, the tables and all of the walls need decorating/ replacing. The restaurant feels like a greasy spoon cafe rather than an Italian.... More

Excellent food choice and very friendly staff (Katie 😁) Can't fault the menu selection and the servings are plentiful. Our second visit in two days so can't be bad...
