Cuisine: Italian
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 beer.

Amazing entree's and don't miss out on the lemon sorbet - I should have had pizza - serious food envy there.

Amazing atmosphere, food and service. Couldn’t fault a thing. Understand why first table is so early- gets fairly busy!

Always a pleasure to dine at Portofino Taupo; very friendly, accommodating staff and wonderful food. If there is one very minor point, it would be that we would like more vegetarian options.

My wife and I really enjoyed Portofino. It was quiet (probably because we were the first there) and the food was delicious and the service friendly.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Portofino, the food and service were excellent and it seems plenty of other people must feel the same as they weren't short of customers.

We have dined at Portofino a number of times now (this was our first time using First Table) and, as always, the food was delicious. We took some elderly family members who were visiting from the UK and they thoroughly enjoyed their meal. I'm sure we'll be popping in again next time we're in Taupo!

We thoroughly enjoyed eating at Portofino! The garlic bread was lovely, and the margarita pizza was spot on. We also had the lasagna which was equally as delicious. Service was great. We will be back!
