Decided to try as not been before. Deco was ok and friendly service pasta was pretty good for the money not too busy

As locals we have dined at many places in Hamilton so decided to give Portofino a try. Safe to say we won’t be returning. Food was extremely under seasoned and bland. I ordered the Cannelloni which was dry, tasteless and the sauce tasted like Watties spaghetti sauce. My partner ordered the gnocchi which was tough, chewy and lacked seasoning. Definitely not worth the price as you could have easily gotten a better meal elsewhere for the same amount.

Don’t go if there is a large number of people there. I found there was not enough staff, so you were kind of forgotten about. When our steak meals came out, the vegetables were Luke warm. Not pleasant to eat. Steak was nice though. We were trying to get attention from the waiters for some cracked pepper, that didn’t happen. Order a second round of drinks. That came out when I was at the counter, paying the account. I have decided never to go back.

The meal was perfect, service very good and Enviroment great all for a reasonable price for the quality received. Special mention of lasagna and Terakhi fish and especially the mixed salad which is so often a disappointment at other restaurants.

We have been here twice this year and both times the service has been outstanding and food beautiful. It is one of our new favourites in Hamilton. Our waiter made our daughter feel so special on her birthday, we can’t thank them enough for making her day special
