Portello Rosso used to be great! It used to be authentic Spanish tapas. Now you'd be lucky to find a Spanish person in the restaurant and definitely not in the kitchen. The location is very Melbourne the food though is not. You can do better.More

We enjoyed the Chef's Selection. Each dish presented was very tasty and authentic. The service from the staff was fabulous. The quantity of food served for the banquet was sufficient. Drinks were a little on the expensive side. Overall a most enjoyable dining experience.

This restaurant has a friendly casual feel, it's cosy and you can be seated sharing a large tall table or along a long bench with others.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways

even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
