When I go out I do not simply go for the food, but also for the atmosphere and the Portobello pizzeria, am afraid has none.

We ordered from the restaurant menu: Both our main courses, chicken breast in mango sauce and steak alla Gorgonzola, have been delicious. The steak was tender and medium rare (I asked for rare, so that's ok for me) and my request "please tell the chef that I love Gorgonzola" obviously has been forwarded:)

Portobello is one of our locals not because it's round the corner from where we live but because it's a REAL restaurant with a homely feeling and genuine food and service. Maria and her chef patron will prepare a delicious meal, fresh and genuine. Can't really say what our favourite is because everything is Yummy !! Pasta with prawns, Fillet... More

A must for people who enjoy pizza. The variation is very good, an they have some unorthodox ones too.
