Café Portofino Review
The lengthy menu at this mostly authentic northern Italian restaurant is as impressive as the views of Kalapaki Bay and the Haupu range. Owner Giuseppe Avocadi's better-sounding-than-tasting dishes have managed to garner a host of culinary awards and raves from dining critics. The osso buco is a signature dish, and the fresh catch, pasta, scampi, and veal are enhanced by sauces. Linger over coffee and ice cream-filled profiteroles or traditional tiramisu while enjoying romantic harp music. Competent service and a soothing, dignified ambience complete the dining experience. Choose the open-air dining area for a romantic meal.
