I had dinner with friends at Portello Rosso for a friend's Hens Night. The atmosphere as soon as we walked in was warm, cosy and welcoming. Every available space was taken up with tables with people devouring delicious tapas. We have no trouble getting gluten...More

A very cute restaurant tucked away from the busy high street. The food was varied and delicious. Service let the night down sadly. We were the first to arrive at Portello Rosso at 17:15 but the door man seemed reluctant to let us in. One...More

Nestled in a fun little laneway we were hoping we might have discovered a little gem of an eatery... Unfortunately upstairs the seating is a bit too tight in some spots and would suggest that if you make a booking make sure you aren’t placed...More

Central Business District
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
