Our favorite meal in all of Croatia. The food was cooked to perfection, lovely owner & staff. We loved the Beef Ragu & Stuffed Chicken. Centrally located in Split. Excellent!

Food and service were excellent! The pasta was delicious as was the steak. The prices were very reasonable given the high quality of food, attention to detail and impeccable service.

My partner and I visited Portofino after reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed.
The service provided by our waiter, Leo, was outstanding. He was very attentive, always keeping our glasses of wine and water topped up.
The food was also excellent, the only problem we had was that we ate too much.
This is a must visit restaurant in Split.

After walking through Park Šuma Marjan (highly recommend for walkers who enjoy stairs and views), we headed across the old town to this restaurant, based on the TripAdvisor reviews. I ignored my daughter's suggestion on the way to check the menu of an inviting cafe near the park. Upon discovering that Portofino is just off the main square of Diocletian's Palace, I worried about my choice and about a tourist trap. My worries were unfounded. We had one of our nicest meals during several weeks in Croatia, and at a price that was slightly less than the menus along the water. We can recommend the bruschetta with shrimp, the salmon and shrimp fettuccine, the pesto linguine, and roasted vegetables. Service was excellent and friendly, and the ambience nice in the outdoor patio. House wines were pleasant. TripAdvisor with all the excellent ratings came through on this one!

We had a very good dinner at Portofino. My steak was cooked to perfection. My wife was happy with her vegetarian entree also. The wine list was great and the wait staff knew the menu and wines well. Excellent service, even though it was very crowded.
