We dined at Portofino three times during our week long vacation at the Las Brisas resort. We had different appetizers, salads, main courses each time and not once were we disappointed. The flavours were incredible, the presentations were amazing, and the service was outstanding. We would highly recommend this restaurant. It truly was one of the best dining experiences we... More

Portofino is a beautifully appointed restaurant in the Las Brisas Ixtapa resort. During high season it would be wise to make a reservation. Portions are ample to share and both our salads and pasta with shrimp were excellent. Prices are very reasonable. Pasta, salad, wine, dessert and tip about $35.00 USD for 2 people.

This place is indeed the best deal you will be able to get in a long time. Prices are great for what you get. Honestly I have never been a huge fan of Italian cousine however this place completely change my point of view. Food is delicious. Prices are extremely fair. Customer service may improve a little but you can... More

This restaurant in the Las Brias Hotel is outstanding. Not on the menu is a seafood pasta dish that they will cook at your table. Really excellent.

I have tried to like. But last night I went and ordered the chicken breast an they brought me out fish. When I ask the waiter, he said are you sure you didn't order fish. I said I order the chicken. Then he walked off leaving me to eat the fish. Unless you speak Spanish I would stay away from... More

It is one example of the awful food they served when we went to Portofino to have dinner. We ordered a fish carpaccio and it was served with mayonnaise. The gnocchi were only a bad pasta cut and offered with a supermarket cheese sauce. We ordered a mint tea (5 times before getting it) and they brought chamomile tea. The... More

The service is excellent, and the food was delicious. They make their own pasta in-house, and the freshness definitely shows. For the quality, the cost was more than reasonable.

The food was very tasty. They will prepare part of your order right in front of you - quite a show. The price was on the higher side, too high for Ixtapa. The wine list is OK. One thing that surprised me - the restaurant has no windows; I felt like dining in a basement. There are a couple of... More

While staying at Las Brisas, we had dinner one night at Portofino's. The cuisine was excellent. We ordered the Caesar Salad for two. The dressing was made from scratch in front of our table while we watched. It was delicious! I ordered a pasta dish without seafood, meat or poultry. It was fabulous! We finished off our meal with specialty... More
