I had duck and my wife had pasta. Both were superb. The staff were kind and friendly. We will go back. They also have a pizzeria attached for great oven baked pizza. Great views of St. Paul's Bay also. Hard to beat this place in Bugibba.

This is a nice italian style place, and the pasta was great. There's also an extensive wine list for people who are into their wines. Would definitely recommend.

When I go out I do not simply go for the food, but also for the atmosphere and the Portobello pizzeria, am afraid has none. The pizza is served in a garage type room that has not seen any updating in recent years. The pictures on the wall are cheap, the chairs and tables are old and ugly and the... More
