The food was great. There were eight in our party and our meals were varied and wonderful. Food is fresh and well presented. This restaurant is expensive, however.

We had delicious wine and nice food here but it was overpriced for the competitive area. The feel of the restaurant was a bit snobby.

The pan-grilled cannelloni was absolutely delicious; it arrived piping hot at the table accompanied by a most appetising béchamel sauce.

My husband has been going here since well before we were married and it's a firm favorite. We arranged a group for his 50th and chose to come across on the ferry from the city. The food was perfect as usual, and the service was excellent. Perfect for couples, family or friends. Not to be confused with the other Portofino... More
