Dropped in to grab some quick tasty Italian takeaway, but was severely let down. The Marinara was of insignificant quantity; perhaps 2 diced prawns and several other seafood bits and pieces, packed out with 7 mussel and 3 pippie in shells, all in a salty...More

I have nothing bad to say about my recent dining experience here, nor have I anything fabulous to say. The food was enjoyable but nothing to rave about, as too the service.

The place offers some of the best Italian cuisines I have had in Australia. The BYO concepts adds to the beauty. Try the desserts with Frangelico, they're out of the world. :)

We've dined at Portobello on each visit to Palm Cove and have always really enjoyed the food and its extensive menu. The service from Abbey was wonderful and a real credit to the restaurant.

While the menu was quite limited and not well suited to our teenagers, the food was delicious. But the Italian flare is limited and it is on the expensive side for Palm Cove.

Great food and friendly attentive service. My husband who loves garlic prawns thought these one of the best he has ever tasted. It was a very busy night but there was hardly any delay getting our drinks and meals. Brilliant.

Good quality food, plenty of it, tasted delicious. It can sometimes be hard to get a table, so probably best to book. Staff seem disappointed if you don't want wine or a dessert.
