My wife and I shared a pizza and bottle of wine here for lunch. It was a fun place to watch the world go by. Food and service were very good.

been to Portofino in the Venetian several times over the years and enjoyed it; we returned for dinner in a recent visit and are pleased that they continue to serve very authentic and delicious Italian fare. The main restaurant upstairs has a nice atmosphere (reservation highly suggested) and more formal; we chose to sit downstairs which has a more relaxed... More

We were craving for some Italian food and Portofino hit the spot. All items were a bit overpriced including the water but the taste was above par. Portion sizes were average but the waiter was very friendly and helpful and even took some group photos of us without us even asking.

Unexpectedly discovered a pink sparking wine from the Jura region in France, which went down a treat. This restaurant is around the corner from the Venetian Theatre, so convenient when you are going for a show! We chose to sit at the bar and enjoy our meal there...the risotto was excellent and the pizzas good.

Went there with friends. Like all those restaurants in the big casinos, this one is really over priced. The environment is good and the food is decent, especially the meat dishes. I like Osso-Buco and the stew. However the seafood plates is really sub-standard. The shrimp is precooked, and lack the freshness. Overall, avoid the restaurants in large hotels.

Went for lunch whilst staying in Venetian. Whilst the foodhall was extremely busy, this place, more of a restaurant was pretty quiet. Staff were attentive enough, food wasn't great. ok but not great!

We went here as a large group for a Christmas dinner, on a mixture of fixed Christmas menu and a la carte dishes. The downstairs area is not very inviting but the main dining area is upstairs and much classier. Well spaced tables. Friendly happy staff and the service was very good with the manager very helpful in ensuring all... More

The lunch buffet offers you choices of pizza, pasta and salad. All you can eat from the menu. Of course, you should eat all that order - no takeaway fro what you don't eat. The ingredients they use are all top notch. Finest hams, cheese, etc. Not your usual mozarella cheese. Comes with great selection bread basket, Dinner should be... More

We ended up here during a day trip to Macau and I'm so glad we did. The food was delicious and the service was some of the best we received on the trip. The chicken was my favourite. I wasn't hungry enough to eat a full one so they very kindly did me a half portion which was just right!

We have come to the Portofino restaurant for years appreciating its excellent food, service and hospitality. The restaurant is situated within the Venetian hotel and offers both inside air conditioned tables as well as al fresco dining at the terrace overlooking the luxurious swimming pool of the Venetian. Staff is well trained, special thanks to Brian from the Portofino bar.... More
