It is always a pleasure returning to dine at Porta Rossa and I always eat the same pizza: Diavola! Tasty and hot! A real devil... It is the only restaurant where I always eat the full pizza! The dough is light and crackling crunchy and the ingredients fresh. For dessert, a nice sorbet. The wine list is appealing. We chose... More

One of the best Italian dinner I ever had. The location, the service and the food exceeded our expectations.

Do not come here expecting great pizza. There might be a wood burning oven, but that is as authentic as it gets. I was horrified to find that the paddle end of the pizza paddle, was touching the floor. For obvious hygiene reasons the paddle should be up, not touching the floor. I agree with a previous review, the plates... More

Nice restaurant from the same team behind Cafeína e Casa Vasco, especially devoted to Italian food albeit with some portuguese influences! The restaurant is set in a property within a residential neighbourhood in Foz, Porto, and it was a nicely designed interior and also a nice terrace outside! The food is good and service is friendly! Pizzas are crunchy thin... More

We have been to a few Italian restaurants recently in Porto and this was easily the best, in terms of cuisine, wine list, ambiance and service. The setting is lovely. It is off the beaten track in Foz but well worth it.

We had a nice lunch today with our family. The place is small, the food very nice, the service too. We had calzone with rucola salad, very tasty and more than enough for one. If you are not so hungry, you could share with someone.. My husband had the tuna pizza (delicious, not much cheese, very light and crunch), our... More

The restaurant is located in a really nice area in Porto and has a great terrace to sit outside and enjoy the sun. The food is of very good quality and both the first courses that we tried as well as the pizza and the pasta was very tasty and of great quality. The service was quick and the waiters... More

We tried several 'Italian' restaurants in Porto and most of them failed to deliver; most being tourist traps. Portarossa is this hidden gem in a residential neighbourhood in Foz - mostly known to locals looking for fresh , authentic Italian food. The atmosphere is high end but unpretentious, and the food the prepared with care and using fresh local ingredients.... More

Description
O Portarossa é uma pizzeria, situada na Rua Corte Real na Foz, e que pertence ao grupo de restaurantes que integram o já famoso Cafeína.Inspirada pelo sentimento cool de Little Italy, este espaço acolhedor idealizado por Jacques Bec e Artur Miranda, abre-se primeiro numa esplanada/jardim através de um enorme e basculante portão vermelho, imagem de marca deste espaço, e razão de ser do nome Portarossa.O pavimento em madeira da esplanada ladeada pelo original muro de pedra, é adornado por arbustos de alecrim que acompanham o muro e animam a disposição das elegantes cadeiras e mesas brancas, contrastando com o verde caqui das paredes e dos toldos pretos.O interior, onde as diferentes salas se interligam, partilha um aprazível e comunicativo ambiente com o exterior. Na sala principal, o soalho castanho escuro, as mesas em tampos de mármore travertino e as cadeiras Surpil desenhadas por Julien-Henri Porché, as paredes brancas de tijolo com candeeiros da década de 30, estes da prestigiada Lampe Gras reflectem o ambiente idealizado pela OITOEMPONTO de Artur e Jacques.Sobejamente projectado, o Portarossa revela-se um espaço ao mesmo tempo simples e sofisticado, concebido para ser um local de convívio sem horas marcadas e onde pessoas de todas as idades se sentirão confortáveis e divertidas.
