Bermuda Restaurants

Portofino

Updated 11/04/2013

Fodor's Review

You'll be transported to Italy as you step inside Portofino, with its shuttered windows and brick walls covered in pictures from the owner's family album. There's also an outside dining area for those balmy evenings. Start with calamari or garlic bread, the two starters for which the restaurant is renowned. Then move on to the pizzas (we favor the pepperoni and artichoke variety). Why not try the tiramisu, chocolate brownie, or rum cake for dessert? Prices and portions

are decent and there's even a separate take-out section, complete with its own entrance, so you can pick up your dinner without waiting for a table!

Pizza in Bermuda

If you need comfort food and missing a little bit of home go to Portofino for dinner. The food is nothing special, but perfect if you need something simple and down home. Service is excellent and that is something to write home about. Be prepared to wait for a table. The place is very popular and very family friendly.

If you screw up an order, don't lie and say you didn't.

We sat for about 45 minutes after our order was taken and saw no sign of the order or waiter. However we kept seeing many customers who came in long after us being served and leaving. We finally motioned a waiter to come over to our table. The waiter said he would look into what happened. However a good 20 minutes passed and still no order, so we asked the waiter who took our order to see what happened. He went and came back and said it was coming.

My husband asked what the delay was and why so many customers that came in long after us were already served, finished and had left while we were still waiting. The waiter angrily denied that there was any problem or delays with our order and insisted that everything was on time. However in the distance we could see several waiters looking at our table and discussing something amongst themselves and the chef. The chef was shaking his head. Suddenly out of no where, a waiter came to our table with 4 glasses of wine and offered it to us. However the arguing waiter continued with his denial and did not notice that behind him a waiter was coming with wine as a peace offering to our table. If our order was on time, why is it that the waiter that was not part of the scene come over with wine, while the other waiter was still arguing? We were made to feel awkward and like trouble makers. It was an embarrassing scene. It has been a long, long time since we have had such terrible service and certainly never Bermuda. Also any time, we have had bad service the waiter or waitress was civil enough to take responsibility. The moral of the story is if you screwed up and forgot to submit the order, do not lie and insist that nothing went wrong. What happened with good old customer service skills? P.S. The food was only so, so, after all the fuss and hassle too. Too bad the bill already came with the tip included as there would have been a zero for tip.

What great italian food.

I can't explain how great the food was at Portofino's. I am from New York, and know great Italian food. It was so surprising to find such a variety of Italian dishes, done so well, in Bermuda. The atmosphere is a bit busy,& there were a lot of tables for a small space. But, how else can this restaurant keep up with the demand? I found the entire experience wonderful. Great wine selection. Real italian waiters. Can't beat it.
