Last night in Auckland. Looked for a restaurant with a lovely view. Fancied Italian and this place fitted the bill. Staff were friendly, and the menu looked typically Italian with a few twists. Meal was really nice, and would certainly recommend it for a nice evening out.

The via duct area is full of bars and eateries, this one sits well in this area and offers a great choice of seating either in or out and some nice booths. If the weather is fine outside is a great option to enjoy the night, sounds and sights of this bay. Extensive menu to choose from, starters to desserts,... More

Amongst several restaurants on the harbor. Portofino looked to have the best menu and we were right. A nice Mud House Pinot Noir added to our meal selection of Pesca Risotto and Marsala Scallopini. All the Australian and New Zealand wines we have tried have been very good with average prices.

Great service and yum food. Nice spot to eat sit and watch the world go by. Great variety on the menu only downside is it's a bit pricey...

When it came time to decipher what type of cuisine to eat tonight, Italian came to mind. Staying near the harbour we thought why not the viaduct. Portofinos hospitality and food for 6 was fabulous, all our guests enjoyed the aromatic flavours served. Congratulations to the chef and manager on a swell evening😀

Obviously some kind of chain where Portofino claims some of the better spots on New Zealand harbours. So many restaurants on the harbour, so many poseurs in so many restaurants on the harbour... all dressed in black.... damn you All Blacks, you've blackened the harbour. It is actually quite interesting walking around Auckland harbour and it has to be said... More

Good Italian food at a reasonable price in a pleasant harbour setting. We ended up eating here on 3 occasions on our recent visit and enjoyed every meal with the only downside that the service from the kitchen was a tad slow. Would certainly recommend it.

We sat outside and had quite a pleasant meal. Good service, and we enjoyed the food. If you are looking for an easy Italian meal, good place to go.
