Booked a meal before to going to a concert and had the Pre -Theatre menu My better half had the Whitebait which was cooked perfectly, myself the Mushrooms in a creamy garlic sauce We both had the steak skewers which was a tender big portion with hand cooked chips. Restaurant looks a little tired but service and food was good

We have eaten at Portofinos on a previous visit to Stoke and enjoyed it both times. There is a pre-theatre menu which is very good value. I had salmon which was delicious. The Rosemary bread is lovely - we had it as a starter with some olives. The service was good on both occasions - last time we went it... More

Excellent pre Theatre Dinner. Excellent service and great homemade food. We arrived late for our booking due to traffic on the motorway but after phoning the restaurant to advise they were very understanding. The starters were free when ordering a main meal. The choice was very good and so was the main course. I had the spaghetti carbonara and my... More

We came for a works Christmas meal, everyone thoroughly enjoyed the food, service was good and friendly, we were upstairs and it was very hot, but it was quite busy! A couple of times a felt a bit dizzy as it was so hot...other than that we would definitely go back 😊

I checked this place out on trip before booking and we were delighted with both the food and service. They even warmed up a starter that is usually served cold for me. Good value as we were using a discount card and got one meal free. If in the area we would go again. Nice seats in the window provide... More

My wife & I visited prior to going to the theatre. The special menu was excellent and you only pay for the main course from your 2 course meal. The food was lovely and the service very good. Will certainly go again when we next go to a show or concert.

We went before a show at Victoria Hall as it is very close. We both ate from the pre theatre menu which is two courses but you pay only for the main course. There was a good variety of food on the menu and the service was quick and discreet.
