The food was great! The serving sizes were generous! And the service was great. Good value for money! Will definitely come again in the future.
Great restaurant. Only downfall parking hard to find and bit noisy inside apart from that overall experience was quite good. Would go back again. Thanks.
The service was terrific, but the food was just OK. Nothing sensational, but not bad either. We would go again, but wouldn't be breaking our necks to get back there.
Arancini was frozen in the middle. Guests weren't asked if they would like a drink when they sat down. Risotto was very bland. Average overall
We go to Portorosa for all family celebrations. It was underwhelming last night. Service staff mixed up our order, my wife's steak was poorly cooked. Not up to the usual standard
