I had a very basic quatro stagionni pizza and it was awful. It looked and tasted like it had just been defrosted and cooked from frozen. It tasted like a cheap pizza you would buy from Iceland and I'm fairly sure the dough had not...More

Back again to a favourite lunch venue (or equally so in the evening). Can't beat the value with as ever no cut back in quality. Every customer served with friendly courtesy in a restaurant with amazing classic style. Just up from the quayside or just...More

This is a really nice restaurant, attractive building and decor, excellent food and service and great value for money. Had the lunch menu before the afternoon football match and the meal was better than Everton's performance!

Visited here for first time last night for a birthday meal with friends - I’ve always steered clear of Portofinos as it’s in the cheaper range of restaurants in town . I have to say I am really impressed - the food was delicious- we...More

Had an early evening (6pm) meal they have a special, reduced priced menu from 6-7pm as well as the full menu. The food we had was very good, tasty, hot and plentyful. Service is good and the building helps give the place an Italian feel.

Starters were very good, caprese salad and pate were lovely but mains were a bit disappointing. Service was good despite it being a very busy Saturday night.
