“Fresh tasty and as close to Italy as one could hope .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 October 2013 via mobile

This restaurant is the only restaurant that doesnt try to be Latvian with a twist of Italian ! Here in Riga the culture is so serious about the heritage that even the mexican food has dill. Portofino has all the ingredients perfectly prepared. The seats are comfortable , from the amazing olive oil and bread to the veal chop and seafood salad one is left satified and longing to return for the next meal . We reccomend this place 100%.

“Excellent Italian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013 via mobile

Just visited this restaurant and I have only positive feedback. The service was good which is not something you would tipically have in other restaurants in Riga. Portofino is located in the quite center of Riga and it has an Italian touch to it that you can see in the decorations- pictures of Portofino and a selection of wines on the walls. You will find this place full of people even in the middle of the week. The food was excellent- I had spaghetti with seafood and the sauce was delicious! They also put the selection of home-made bread, which I loved. Oh, and do try the home-made ice cream. I definitely recommend this restaurant for any type of event.

“Good restaurant near Elisabetes street”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 June 2013

This Italian restaurant is rather new, but is already popular among the locals in the neighborhood. We were very satisfied with everything, the service was very attentive ( which is not always the case in Riga), and we were delighted about the food. I had fried zucchini with goat cheese as a starter, and it was delicious. My colleagues liked the carpaccio ( even If I would have preferred it without the truffle oil). I had the fish of the day as a main course while my colleagues had rabbit, and everything was tasty and nicely presented. Prices were rather reasonable as well. I will definitely return!
