Portofino Restaurant Review

: You might mistake this restaurant for a sports bar, a clubhouse or even a dance club, but it’s actually a casual Italian hangout. Located in the heart of Old Quebec, Portofino is housed in a historic building dating to 1760 and is adorned with flags from various Italian sports teams as well as olive oil containers and even giant bottles of Champagne. Start with a Negroni then move on to one of a legion of pizzas, from the “Pizza Grizzly” with its smoked salmon, sour cream and chives to the Tuscan version with chicken, the four-cheese or the Calabrese sausage varieties. Pastas include the Alfredo with rich Parmesan sauce and the linguine ai frutti di mare with a wealth of clams, oysters, shrimp and scallops in a white wine sauce. The restaurant stocks 7,000 wines that encompass just about every region of Italy as well as the world.

Authentic Italian ristorante
by Paolo on Fri Aug 17, 2012 6:06 am
Authentic Italian Food! This was probably the best pizza I have ever tasted. The crust was crispy. I ordered the prosciutto pizza. The topping of cheeze and prosciutto was delicious. It wasn't too salty. To finish my dinner, I also ordered a tiramisu. I usually don't go for dessert because they are often too sweet for me. But this tiramisu was pretty good.
Waiters were very professionnal and the price is fairly decent.
