“Beautiful food”
Reviewed 21 September 2013 via mobile

After a stroll around the foreshore, we stumbled across portofino's and we are glad we did. The food, wine, service and atmosphere here was wonderful. The risotto was to die for as was the fish of the day. Next time I'm in Wellington I will totally come back.

“Great food”
Reviewed 2 August 2013

Arrived early as we hadn't had lunch & pleased we did because over the next 30 minutes the restaurant filled up. I had the seafood risotto & daughter had the chicken risotto. Both were really yummy. The man had the salmon penne pasta, a favourite of his & wasn't disappointed. We shared a really good garlic pita to start. Too full for desert, we'll have to go back again for that. We love Portafino restaurants & have been to the ones in Taupo & New Plymouth & always get great meals. Staff helpful & friendly.

“View, good food and we could hear ourselves talk!”
Reviewed 23 July 2013

Service friendly and staff attentive.. especially with topping up your wine glasses! They were a little so with bringing the mains to the table though and not busy. However; we were visiting from Akl and met up with Wellingtonian friends who had booked this place. It was perfect for our needs - good food and a quiet atmosphere. We really enjoyed being able to talk and it was conducive to that. Food was excellent, large portions, everyone said their meal was tasty! Fickle Mistress Pinot Noir @ $58 was also most enjoyable too. Would go when in Wellington next: 33 Customhouse Quay
