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!

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
