A plate full of tomato sauce,struggled to find the lasagna. I wouldnt be bothered to go back again. Think it has closed now. Not surprised.

Don't bother. We always try to support local businesses & we wanted to see this business do well. Shame they didn't have the same intention. I'll be surprised if they're still open. The pizzas we got first time we're really nice - even their gluten free. That's all I can say that's positive. After that initial visit we've tried 3... More

We arrived at this restaurants address expecting to find a French restaurant but found that they franchise had changed to Portovino's instead. We had wanted to try it anyway, the food was rather commercial, nothing 'like mama used to make'. The restaurant venue it self was good, they just need to improve on their food. However if it is a...

Tasty food but unfortunately their opening hours are all over the place they seem to open when they want!

What a disappointment. Nothing much was working when we visited, which we could have accepted if the food was OK - but it wasn't! I don't know who tells these people how to cook Italian, but it was very poor quality indeed. The veal dish sounded great but it was swimming in cream. The risotto was overcooked. The garlic bread...

We have had takeaway twice from here in the last week, as we have just moved to the area. First was takeaway pizza which was decent. But the last occasion I tried a marinara spaghetti, 1 x pizza, 1 x garlic bread. I phoned through and was told it would take 30 minutes. It ended up taking 50 minutes! Their... More

Just had a great meal here tonight. 3 meals, plates cleared. Great food, including a decent Pizza. Bad points. No atmosphere, radio playing not good authentic music. No front of house figure, so no greeting. Water and wine served, but no follow up after that. The young waitress did not even check if we needed anything at all. Yes it's... More

Not far from home and really excellent food. Been there three or four times and not been disappointed once. Would certainly go back

We went to Portovino's with few expectations, due to mixed reviews. The restaurant is small - maybe 8 tables inside, and a few outside. The service was casual - one waiter, who was pleasant but not overly attentive (we had to get salt and pepper from another table). The decor is country cafe, no frills but comfy. But the food...
