Our story


Established for over 40 years, Portofino is a family of local restaurants passionate about delivering a genuine Italian dining experience. We are proud to serve fresh, delicious Italian food, complemented by a great glass of wine in a home-like Italian setting where everyone is welcomed as family and friends.

Today there are 13 Portofinos spread across New Zealand, each of which offers a unique dining experience, and continues to honour the founders’ philosophy of fresh, flavourful food and friendly service.
