We had a wonderful experience at Portello Rosso. Absolutely fantastic food, and they easily accommodated our dietary requirements (gluten free). At the end of the evening the waitress went above and beyond by placing birthday candles in our dessert!! We would definitely go back again!

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air

It is pretty difficult to get a booking at the best of times. It has two main dining areas, I doubt you would be able to use the downstairs area as it is small and highly used. Upstairs a possibility as it is more spacious... More
