“Very good soup but average Penne pasta”
Review of Portofino

Reviewed 23 September 2017

Decided to stop for lunch at Portofino Italian Restaurant. Started with Minestrone soup. Good size bowl, lots of vegetables, very tasty. Cost $13.90. Followed by Penne Al Salmone. Little bland, heavy cream but still okay. At 21.90 a bit pricey.
Still I do recommend the restaurant and will come back again.

The Staff welcomed us very friendly and efficient
The Food was excellent. It was well presented and very tasty
The drinks were very affordable
The Staff were very efficient. They were very welcoming without being intrusive
The only negative was that when sitting by the outside windows as they gave the best location for privacy from other diners. The Air Conditioning gave a chilling feel.

After arriving a very busy day sightseeing in Napier we were keen to find somewhere for dinner, phoned here & whilst they were busy with dinner bookings for guests doing a dinner/show they were very accommodating & fitted us in for a 6:30pm meal. Service was excellent! Meals were delicious & the vegetables were hot! Yum!

Very nice restaurant, staff helpful and friendly and the food was superb. This is a large restaurant so you can feel isolated if it is a quiet night.

You folks did an amazing job! What a delight it as to have an authentic Italian meal. Everything felt, looked and tasted authentic! It was as if we were transported to Italy. Even more authentic was the friendliness of our waitresses, they're awesome! We will come back again for dinner!
