While living in Emerald we ate at Le Porte Rosse on a number of occasions. Unfortunately they will be remembered for our last dinner that was average to say the least with poor service offered by very young and inexperienced staff. At an Italian Restaurant,...More

I always plan my trip around meals here, and during my most recent trip I tried their coffee and it was fantastic! The food is authentic and always top quality! Great gnocchi and pizzas. Such an asset in CQ!

Didn’t expect to find such a decent Italian restaurant in the bush. Live music (from a 16y old singer/guitarist) was excellent - food very good and an adequate wine list. Our Indian waiter(another surprise) was excellent too

Australianised Italian food which was good but service was horrendous. Had to wave staff down as they walked past. The place was busy but...service was so bad. I would give it another chance however as the food was very good.

Our previous experience for dinner here a few years ago was not a good one, but based on recent reviews (and a lack of alternatives in Emerald!) we decide to give it another try...and were glad we did. Service is prompt and efficient and the...More
