Great atmosphere for a Sunday night. Reasonably priced meals and very decent portions. Would definitely recommend if you love Italian.

We had a good meal at Portofino. The atmosphere was a bit echoey and the few people dinning seemed to be in separate pools. but the food was good and on a weekend or more active day it would have more atmosphere. Hopefully the food would be just as good.

If you are after Italian and you are in New Plymouth, not a bad place to choose.

This place is an absolute gem. The service is sublime. We often pop in early in the evening without a booking and they squeeze us in every time. I love that they accommodate us and so 6pm is great if you don't have a booking. The ambience is perfect - cozy and intimate and the classic Italian dishes and exactly right. Highly recommend this tried and true (it's longevity is testament to how good) place for a good value Italian dinner.

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!
