Came here the other day while staying at faulty towers (North Stafford Hotel).
Food was beautiful, so much flavour and nicely presented.
Good prices and good service.
and AMAZING home-made sauce. I forgot the name, but it was on the side next to my calzone, Wish i could have got a jar and take it home, it was the best i;ve tasted!
Would definitely recommend this little beauty. Just don't judge the area, looks a bit run down and a little intimidating if your not from the area, which we are not, but this place is a little gem!

From the outside Portofino Restaurant could be a lovely Italian oasis in rather run down surroundings.
Although the waitress was nice enough, the food was awful. My starter was supposed to be stuffed garlic mushrooms but came as mush of breadcrumbs and was barely edible. My partner had prawns which were more shell than prawn. My mains was again a sickly creamy mush and my partners sea food pasta was a joke. The mussels in shells on the top were squiggles of greyish meat.
The prices weren't exactly cheap either so give this one a miss!
