Price Point: Mains from $20 - $30
At Portofino it’s a winning formula; tasty Italian food, great wine and good company.
Nestled in the idyllic scenery of Taupo, this restaurant is the perfect place to get some down time. Its exposed brick work, rustic décor and friendly staff make for some seriously chilled vibes. All that’s left is to tuck into the best comfort food on the block.
Inspired by the food from Northern Italy, their menu has something for everyone. Choose from a plethora of pizzas, pastas and risottos. All the favourites are on the pizza team and for pasta, there’s a delicious ravioli, salmon pasta and spaghetti carbonara. Be braver and choose the white veal from the meaty mains or some tender lamb cutlets.
Choose your boozy weapon from their extensive Italian wine menu or their list of popular wines from NZ. Alternatively, make it a special evening with a classic cocktail or keep it chilled with an ice-cold pint.
