Simply the best Italian food I had in a long, long time. Pricey but worth it. Hotel is in a nice location, but street can be noisy and traffic jams pretty bad, so I didn't stay in the hotel. I am grateful that a business partner took me to the restaurant, though!

Portofino offers a wide range of Italian dishes with good quality and a reasonable price tag. This place has never disappointed us and keeps us coming back. The staff is friendly and offers excellent service, if you were to order a bottle of wine your glass won't be empty for long until you finish the bottle. The restaurant is nicely... More

This restaurant has high quality Italian food for China. The service was excellent and everything was well prepared. The fried calamari was fantastic. It was about 350 RMB for two persons with drinks, appetizers and main course.

High-end Italian cuisine. Bit quiet at lunch time. Good, fast service. Not for people traveling on a budget.

The food was great and the service greater. They even had 3 Americans working there. Nathan, Ethan and Deena were excellent service providers and met our every need.

The nice thing about Portofino is that it is in the Millennium Hotel, so if you change your mind, you can try their Harbourview Cafe (great buffets), or Japanese and Chinese restaurants. I most like Portofino's menu, which allows you to pick and mix pastas and sauces to create something unique. I especially liked the cannelloni. They have nice desserts... More
