With its modern Italian décor the venue shows a classy Italy atmosphere with a hint of western influence. Which makes this restaurant another nice place to take your partner out on a date night. The staff have always been helpful, courteous and professional. Which always make any dinning experiences comfortable. We have been here a few times now and have always left satisfied with our meals and dining experience. Very nice Italian restaurant. Will be dinning here again.

Another regular we enjoy. Staff always polite and friendly. Great service. Shared a calamari starter which was delicious. The husband had the tortellini which he loves and I had the veal escalope with mushrooms. So so good. Well worth a visit

Stopped in for a drink and stayed for dinner. We were not disappointed. Excellent aperol spritzers, which led us to be interested in exploring the memu further. Delicious, thoughtful Italian food. This place is a gem tucked into a hotel. Go find it!

The waitress was very helpful. She said “excuse me” whenever she left. The salad was award winning! Soo much flavour and the balsamic was the perfect balance of sweet and sour. Value for money? I would say so because the portions are big. The music is not contemporary pop but a mix of latino rock and ambient minor piano ballads. I ordered the Memoro Italia Rosé and it was perfect. My Salada con feta had semi grilled sweet capsicum and mixed lettuce. My husband had Spaghetti Bolognese with lots of parmesan. In fact they give you a shaker full of it in case you want some more aaand if you’re a NZ cheese addict, you’ll want some more. I really can’t fault the place and why don’t Kiwis want to eat more Italian food?!

This is our second visit within a month and we will be back for more. Sparkling water on arrival...no charge. On our first visit we had the veal dish. Tasty and just melted into one's mouth. Delicately prepared and presented. The Tiramisu was one of the best we have experienced. Today we had the Calzone and we requested no pineapple please and they were very happy to oblige.
A starter, a main and a dessert each and we got change for $100! A nice surprise as often the bill sours the experience somewhat. Not at Portofino.
