LOVE IT!!! The Italian owner greets you by the menu, he's not pushy at all but comes across as PASSIONATE about his restaurant and your visit as a customer. The fact he's stunning is irrelevant ... He is. The service, setting and food are just lovely. Then when you're bored, you can watch him!!!!

We went here on our last night and were gutted we had not been before then! By far the best food we had during the whole stay! Staff weren't great they seem like they hate their jobs but the manager/owner seemed friendly and attentive.

The food here was delicious - i opted for a pizza with chicken and peppers and my friend went for the crab. Both were delicious. The waiter was extremely polite and was very helpful, excellent customer service but I cannot remember his name. This place is very well priced too. My pizza and sprite came to 250 TB which is...

Just finished dinner here and left VERY satisfied! We started with the pesto bruscetta which was yummy. The wine was excellent. We also ordered the chef's special which was spaghetti with fresh tomato, basil and chorizo (two thumbs up!) And pancetta pizza. Huge pizza with a very thin crispy crust. Tasted fresh and light! Would definitely eat here again!

As regular visitors to Koh Tao, on our last visit in March we went back to Portobello. Although the service has always been haphazard and a bit chaotic, the food has always been excellent. This last visit though, food standards had slipped as well. Seriously, there was the Western manager and two staff working for the whole restaurant and they... More

I had the seafood tagliatelle and it was really good! Shrimp perfectly cooked. The squid was kind of hard though but still edible. Sauce and pasta was scrumptious! I would come back for the same dish! Service was okay, some waitresses could have been more attentive. They had a sign that said, "please wait to be seated" so we waited.... More

Good service, amazing food and a great atmosphere! If you are looking for a quite place, this might not be it since it can get a bit noisy. I ordered starter, main, dessert and wine, couldn't help it, everything was so good! The staff also organised a nice suprise for someones birthday, I really liked that.

The best restaurant at Koh Tao. The food are great and they have a size option that comes in handy. Good selection of wine. Recommended for everyone from backpackers to couples on honeymoon.

We had a couple of lovely meals here to take a break from Thai food. This is a well presented restaurant in which you actually feel detached from the hustle and bustle of Sairee despite being in the thick of it. The first time we had deep fried brie followed by pasta. My partner loved the Carbonara and I loved... More
