Great Italian food to either eat in or take away. Only downside is that it is sometimes difficult to get in without a booking. But that's when we take-away!

We came here for dinner recommended by the staff at our hotel made a booking luckily as it was very busy and they turned quite a few away the meals came out in good time had all 3 courses the entree and main absolutely delish good portion sizes and full of flavour great atmosphere the cheesecake was a bit bland but my partners tiramisu was fantastic very traditional all in all highly recommended and reasonable price totally coming again

We were new to New Plymouth so didn't know anywhere good so we went here after our hotel suggested it. The atmosphere is lovely although we were seated at the first table in the lower section so we were a bit cold. They were very busy on this Tuesday night but the service was always professional, friendly and consistent. There is so much on the menu we all struggled to decide what to order. Two of us had the chicken risotto which was superb! I will definitely return when I'm next in town.

portofino's has great food and great service, we went with two children, .. no childrens menu but the pasta can be ordered as an entree, i had the most exspensive meal, $49.90 but not probably worth that price, the total for 2 adults 2 kids with drinks $170, well worth it all round. thanks for a good night,

p.s we aren't big eaters especially pasta dishes, so will not be back for a while but those people who are you will enjoy,
thanks to the staff and chefs

Booked table of six, place just hummed all night. So busy. Service was outstanding, food was perfect even if we had to wait a while. Warm and cosy. Will be back to try the rest of their massive menu. Many thanks.
