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.

We took the ferry from Auckland (12 minute ferry ride) and found this restaurant for lunch .... the menu had a wide selection of food and wine and prices were very reasonable. Our food, the service and atmosphere was excellent. It is located on the second floor which gives a nice view of the water from most tables! The staircase... More

We were dropped in Devonport after our cruise excursion ended. We went to Portofino on the guides recommendation. WOW, great Italian food, friendly staff. Wish we lived closer!!

Portofino's can boast very good service and menu prices that will not break one's budget. The pan-grilled cannelloni was absolutely delicious; it arrived piping hot at the table accompanied by a most appetising béchamel sauce. The wine list was extensive and I was able to order a particularly fruity South Island Riesling. It was great to see that Portofino's had... More

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

Don't let the many empty tables put you off. We have yet to go there and find the restaurant very busy. We're not sure why as the food is always good and you don't have to wait long for it.

We had a great time, loved the food, only thing, there was a guy in the kitchen who kept staring at us, but we eventually realised he was watching the big tv screen. That was a bit uncomfortable, something management can easily sort, we thought the guy was washing dishes or something. Wished Nicholai had served out table, truly, maybe... More
