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!

We decided as a group of 5 to go with the set menu. It was certainly an ample amount of food. Most dishes were good but exceptional, nothing especially memorable. It was a good sequence including fish, jamon and pork and beef. We had some...More

Been there previously and enjoyed it but this time the service was terrible. Patatas Bravas was cold and appeared to have been cooked sometime ago. The bottle of wine ordered was forgotten about and when brought to our table was the wrong one so sometime...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
