13 Reviews for Portofino Bar & Restaurant Devonport
Service was prompt and professional as was arrival of food. Staff very friendly.Entrees were delicious especially my avocado lashed with oodles of seafood.My wife’s Prosciutto entree was thoroughly enjoyed and of good quantity. She had Scallopine Marsala for her Main and declared it very tasty and filling. I was impressed with my choice… Risotto Genoese. Generously filled with seafood and of delicate flavour it was warm till the last bite.
Overall a wonderful experience.
This restaurant isn’t bad as such and there food isn’t the worst I’ve had, however the experience lacked a lot of what Italian culture is all about.
while there food and decor resembled retro-traditional Italian cuisine there service did not. And unfortunately left a family of 6 people over the age of 18 feeling as if they had been neglected and poorly treated. This unfortunately impacted our whole perspective on the restaurant, food, decor and all.
Which in my words is a pity, However I am not put off by the experience and will return sometime in the future to see the improvements- Good luck, signed Anticipated Customer.
Recent refurb is a winner.
Summer with the glass open is the best, sunsets are great.
Staff are always friendly and knowledgeable, nothing is too much trouble (even when we take kids with us and they run around, sorry about that).
A great kids menu too.
Many thanks Portofino, will always be back.
The meals are generously portioned and always delicious, with the chicken pancake being one of the many highlights of the menu.
Service is always prompt, staff are friendly and meals are well timed.
I cannot remember a time when I’ve ever left Portofino unsatisfied and i whole heartily recommend it to anyone looking for a great Italian restaurant on the North Shore.
We have always received first class service.
The staff are very polite and helpful no matter how busy.
The service is always the same, which is faultless.
The food is exceptional and most enjoyable.
The timing of meals is also very good.
The condition of the restaurant is always very clean.
Everyone that works there and including the chefs have always had a friendly smile and made our stay perfect.
I have to try very hard to find fault and if there is, it could be the noise level is a bit high on occasions but that’s what you can expect when a business like this is so popular.
Keep up the good work.
Menu has not changed for years and needs a big revamp. Food last time, in last month, was very average.
Decor needs a makeover.
Give yourself a revamp and you will be a major northshore restaurant again.
