Fun casual place with very good food. Long tables upstairs can accommodate large parties. Down an alley and a small sign - so easy to miss.

Portello Rosso used to be great! It used to be authentic Spanish tapas. Now you'd be lucky to find a Spanish person in the restaurant and definitely not in the kitchen. The location is very Melbourne the food though is not. You can do better.More

We were looking forward to out dinner at Portello Rosso as a previous experience was excellent. However this time whilst the food was acceptable it was a disappointment and overpriced. The paella for two we ordered was small and lacked the depth of flavours expected....More

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
