Being an Italian living abroad, I am always skeptical about Italian restaurant. I gave a try to Portofino for some good word of mouth. First of all I have to say the service is very nice and kind, overall efficient and fast. About the food: seafood pasta is ok but missing salt in my opinion and missing some identity, where... More

Food here is delicious! This is our go to Italian restaurant in Macau. We have been here many times for both lunch and dinner. Lunch is especially good value for money!

I've been to Portofino twice this year, both times for lunch. The food is very good, surprisingly authentic for being so far from Italy, and given the location it's good value. The Venetian Palace is obviously "fake Italy" and Portofino looks like many Italian restaurants outside of Italy ... but the ambiance is not bad. The food, however, is more... More

The food is good and they have an excellent wine list.Service is great most of the time. If you sit downstairs, you get a sort of al fresco style feel to the place.

The food was ok, a bit expensive but understandable for a "high class" restaurant. The service was very poor (like in the 90% of Macau restaurants) for this kind of restaurant.

Portofino has always been fantastic and this time the new menu by Senior Chef Domenico Cicchetti looks fabulous! Today I had a simple appetiser of Carpaccio di Manzo and followed by Risotto ai Frutti di Mare matched with a glass of Pinot Grigio. Perfecto! Finished off with Cassata Siciliana and an espresso. Service as always not rushed, served by Mhae... More
