Could have eaten here every night for the week I spent in Palm Cove with my wife the food was that good.

I ate here yesterday evening with my 2 children and thoroughly enjoyed it. My daughter & I shared a brushetta which was tasty and a delicious fettuccine. The serving was ample for the both of us. My son enjoyed a meatball pizza. The wine list is extensive. Service was professional but friendly. The view is unbeatable.

We visited portobellos 3 times within 10 days and every meal was delicious! Spaghetti marinara is simply to die for. The service was exceptional and prices reasonable. It is a must go to restaurant in palm cove!

Hands down, best Italian I have ever had! We loved it so much that we went twice in 4 days! Would definitely go again. Not only was the food delicious but it was very well priced, the location is amazing, the atmosphere very relaxed and the staff were wonderful. Highly recommend!

We have been to Portobello twice for dinner now. Consistently great food & attentive service. We had wonderful pasta, steak & lamb shanks. I don't know if my photos do it justice!
