Description: Portofino is a perfect place to visit, be and come back.We guarantee that in our restaurant we serve only fresh and delicious food!Portofino is all about Italy - food, wines, music – even interior narrates visitors about this special and magical place in the world. All this is not only words – most of the furniture in our restaurant came from antique shops in Italy – it really has a lot to tell. As well as unique fireplace, which is decorated with original tiles from the XIX-XX century.

“Excellent and authentic Italian food”
Reviewed 16 August 2013

'Portofino' is situated on the ground floor of the Hermis Hotel, and although it is expensive by local standards, it produces some of the best food I've tasted in Lithuania. The menu goes beyond the usual 'pizza + pasta' of other Lithuanian/Italian restaurants, and the service is excellent - a plus in this country. There is an extensive wine list, starting at around 50lt per bottle for imported Italian wines, and a very wide choice of salads, fish, meat, pasta and anitpasti. Waiters speak English and Russian, seating is comfortable and the atmosphere is unhurried and relaxed. Expect to pay around 200 litas for a three course meal with wine and drinks, for two people - expensive by Lithuanian standards but well worth this price.

“Innovative italian cooking in Kaunas”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

Interesting (somethimes innovative) italian food. You should try gnocchi with blue cheese, very good steake's and you I recommend to try halibut -it's worth.
Service is very slow. Quite expencive comparing to other Kaunas restaurants.
If you decided to get business lunch - it's the best opportunity in this district of Kaunas, especially by quality/price ratio.
