Excellent pre Theatre Dinner. Excellent service and great homemade food. We arrived late for our booking due to traffic on the motorway but after phoning the restaurant to advise they were very understanding. The starters were free when ordering a main meal. The choice was very good and so was the main course. I had the spaghetti carbonara and my... More

We came for a works Christmas meal, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food, service was good and friendly, we were upstairs and it was very hot, but it was quite busy! A couple of times a felt a bit dizzy as it was so hot...other than that we would definitely go back 😊

I checked this place out on trip before booking and we were delighted with both the food and service. They even warmed up a starter that is usually served cold for me. Good value as we were using a discount card and got one meal free. If in the area we would go again. Nice seats in the window provide... More

My wife & I visited prior to going to the theatre. The special menu was excellent and you only pay for the main course from your 2 course meal. The food was lovely and the service very good. Will certainly go again when we next go to a show or concert.

We went before a show at Victoria Hall as it is very close. We both ate from the pre theatre menu which is two courses but you pay only for the main course. There was a good variety of food on the menu and the service was quick and discreet.

Been here four times in one week alone! Two lunches and two dinners. I can't rate this place highly enough. Customer service is also top notch 👌🏼 Well done Portofino!

Our meal was planned prior to visiting the Regent theatre to see Jack Whitehall so timing was important. The staff were very prompt, polite and attentive. We ordered from the pre-theatre menu and our 3 courses were all excellent and the timings were perfect allowing us enough time to enjoy without being rushed. An all round excellent experience that I... More
