Gorgeous restaurant, clean and lovely decor, also nice and close to the beach. The service was great, the gnocchi tasty and atmosphere was so warm and inviting we probably stayed longer than we should have. A little pricey but worth it
Similar to the one in the city, Portofino have lovely food that is served by a great team. The portions are quite generous and I struggled (but managed) to finish my meal here. It's in quite a good spot there in Takapuna as well.
