Fantastic food and very friendly service! Had the pasta chef special and it was handmade with delicious pancetta creamy sauce, my husband loves the steak and changing it up with specials. You can see the pasta being made in the restaurant which is awesome. Real Italian food and very good value for money with the Monday-Friday $15 pasta and pizzas. I love coming here with my husband or a group of friends as it's really spacious but cosy at the same time and parking is easy. Highly recommend the espresso martini. This is a great local gem and the best place in Spearwood by far.read more

Very yummy food. We went as a family of 4 plus a toddler. All of our adult meals were great. Chicken tenderloin for kids did end up being unhealthy nuggets unfortunatly. Only let down.read more

Every time we come to Fremantle we go to Portorosa, best pizza. wish they would come to Mandurah.
You don’t get what you pay for! New location, new management & new chef.Returning to our favourite Italian in Freo only to be very dissatisfied. My partner ordered the seafood risotto & 80% of the mussels strategically placed around the dish were empty & very minimal seafood. This dish cost $34 and considering it was mostly a bowl of rice was very disappointing. I ordered the seafood pizza and to eat a pizza with a soggy base and again a lack of seafood was not nice.These two dishes were our favourites from the old location and tonight this experience will be our LAST! We did express our dissatisfaction with the staff on duty and we were offered a lemon liquid dessert on the house which we politely declined.My partner and I traveled a distance to enjoy a rare evening together and sadly it was a very expensive and disappointing Saturday night meal in Freo!I will spread the word to my family and friends via social media and every way possible to not waste your time & money at this restaurant !read more
Went in cos I had craving for chilli mussels and was not disappointed..just the right amount of garlic and chilli...if I could have taken remainder of sauce home I would have...partner pizza was also so tasty and pastry so light and fluffy..great authentic Italian cuisine...definitely going back again and againread more

Tasty Italian food, good service, ambiance is great, friendly staff! Highly recommended!
Been coming here for 39 years
Beautiful Food and Wonderful Company
Hands down the best pizza anywhere. We usually don’t bother trying Italian places unless we’re in Melbourne but we were pleasantly surprised to find this little gem of a place. Not overly impressed with the $26 antipasto board, but the rest of our experience was amazing. Delicious fresh pasta, the most perfect espresso martini’s and of course the pizza. UNREAL! Even when we microwaved it the day after it was like it was fresh out of the wood fire oven. Will be back for sure and be recommending to all our friends.read more
Food and service outstanding
great food, great service!

great food and service at reasonable prices 👍
Lovely food! Lovely wine but disgusting service. Took over an hour for meals! The management then argued with us! Bad customer service! We drank two bottles of wine waiting and I’m pretty sure this is their aim!read more

My daughter had her 16th birthday here with her friends. Everyone enjoyed the food and thanks to lovely staff and amazing service, it became a very special day. Thanks Antony🌸🌸🌸read more
I am completely appalled by tonight and the experience you claim is ‘good service’. Our party of 4 arrived and were simply ushered to a table of 2 and had no guidance, we had to stand in the middle of the restaurant until someone picked up that we were at the wrong table. We then ordered and waited 35 minutes for garlic bread. Every other table that arrived after us was served their food before us, and we had no compensation except a basket of $7 bread. We then ordered a bottle of Prosecco which we had to chase up because it took 20 minutes. Our main meals took an hour to come to the table and when they finally arrived - my food was cold and chewy, my friends calamari was over cooked, and my other friends mussels was tiny. After an hour of waiting, we were informed there was an issue with the computers and this was the reason for the wait. But still no compensation? When we went to pay the bill, we spoke to the manager who was the RUDEST and most ARROGANT man I’ve ever had the displeasure of meeting. He called us liars, and said we hadn’t waited an hour? We had to cancel our plans afterwards because of his slack. He also said he had come up to the table 3 times and I had simply never seen him before in my life. He also explained he instructed my staff to offer us a free round of drinks or desserts which never happened - but somehow we were wrong? He was completely unprofessional and I’ve never been so disgusted by someone’s attitude - especially if this is his career. He then started speaking about us in front of our face in Italian - failing to understand that I am fluent in the language and I could understand everything he was saying. I am completely appalled and will be telling everyone never to dine here. A $220 bill for criticism and bad food? I think not. I am also aware that because I sent back my food after I had spent less than half - I am entitled to a full refund and I will be taking this further.read more
big thanks to Maria & the team at Portorosa in spearwood. Your service & the quality of food served was nothing but A1. Your patience, understanding of our needs and the ability to be flexible was much appreciated, even with 3 changes to the seating arrangements on Friday/Saturday.read more

Best italian restaurant in Perth! I really love their homemade pasta! It’s the best! Excellent service and highly recommended!! ❤️read more
Good food, good service and good location
My partner and I came for dinner tonight, for our anniversary. We were really excited to try out an Italian restaurant that had been recommended to us. Upon arrival, the staff were nice, and the service was great, although, for what you would assume to be an Italian restaurant (as it is listed), it was almost as if there was more seafood options, then Italian. The menu wasn’t an issue, but the food on the other hand was. I had asked the waiter about a kids spaghetti bolognese and if it came in a bigger size, to which he said it didn’t and it was about 100g or so. This was fine, as it was all I was interested in (not wanting prawns, mussels, or scallops on my pasta).When the food came out, it looked great, it smelt great, the presentation was great. The taste, not so much. The pasta for the spaghetti was raw, which made it unenjoyable and very chewy. We then sent it back and they bought a new one out, which was great. Unfortunately, the chef mustn’t know when pasta is cooked, as this time it was still undercooked! This was a bit frustrating.The side meal salad for the calamari fritti (if that’s what they call it) was a bit of a piss poor effort too. It literally just was a mountain of lettuce.. They should have named it the lettuce salad. They were kind enough to add a thin slice of onion, a bit of capsicum and a cherry tomato. Thanks guys.Finally, after not eating my pasta, we decided to take it home in a container for our dog to eat (if he even does). Now on the receipt we got charged $19.50 for a spaghetti bolognese that was supposed to be $11. I questioned the waiter about this and if there was more pasta added in, to make up the $8.50 extra and he said no. I then started to get mad and questioned again, to which he changed his mind and answered “yes 100g roughly”. Regretting paying for it now still 🙄All in all, we won’t be recommending this place to anybody and we definitely wont be returning.read more
food and atmosphere was excellent def would recommend going there
really nice good service and nice food
Very nice and authentic Italian taste and food
Wai Cheong Joseph Lai
Terrible food. We have eaten there a couple of times before in the past year. Last night the standard was deplorable and has gone way way down. Fish was burnt and waitress said, “it’s just the skin...” they changed it in the end upon our insistence. Linguine aglio was bland, fettuccine carbonara was oversalted. We asked 3 times if the Chef had been changed and they said it’s the same guy, well that same guy must have taken up chain smoking in the past 6 months coz his tastebuds are obviously affected. Prime candidate for a reality TV kitchen makeover, they are deluded if they think people don’t notice. We were there on a Thursday night the last time in Nov 2017 as well and the place was doing great, this time we were one of 4 tables... people notice. Get your act together, there are plenty of good Italian places as alternatives and I won’t be returning.read more

Best authentic Italian in Perth! Restaurant is a little outdated and sitting on plastic chairs isn’t the nicest for a restaurant setting but the quality of food makes up for it! �read more
Lunch was amazing, staff greeted us warning & explained their specials in detail, food was yummy, best snapper in a long time, for sure will be back to many more meals, well done all staff & ownerread more
Food was ok but not exceptional. We were sat next to the pizza bar and I swear if the pizza chef hit that bell to summon the wait staff any louder I would be deaf. Surely in this day and age a bell is a little outdated? It was that noisy you had to shout to be heard, whilst the level of noise isnt the restaurants fault you will exclude certain types of clientelle, such as those who may want a quiet meal where they dont have to yell across the table.Pizza was void of much topping and when a 12 year old says his carbonarra tastes floury you know something is wrong.Sorry guys, most of the reviews here are high but you missed the mark last night by a long way. My salad consisted of lettuce, 1 slice of capsicum, 2 slices of red onion and 1 cherry tomato, you dont need a chef to prepare that!read more

Great food, good location and excellent service from the staff, combined to make for a very enjoyable night out.
Waited over an hour for lunch (the restaurant wasn’t even busy..) and paid over $40 for a surf and turf with one prawn and tough meat.. flavour was okay but a bit expensive for what I received..read more
Always good food and service at reasonable prices.
Five stars for food, but the young lady that seated us was too busy to take our order because she was socialising with some guests at another table. When she finally came and took our order we thought not long now and we will be eating. Time of seating 1 pm. We were wrong two more families come in that she knew. Next thing we know they have drinks and food and we were still waiting to have a drink. It was almost 2 pm before we got a drink and 2:30 before food arrived. Very disappointed in the service even if the food is five star. Also after going there for years I noticed the air conditioning ducts are filthy, and the whole place looks tired. Might not of noticed if service hadn't of lapsed so much. Wasn't even busy when we walked in. You may ask why we stayed, it's the food that lured us there again.read more

Came across this restaurant whilst walking the streets. As we are going to Portorosa this year thought it would be fun to try it. Brilliant, great food, great staff and very attentive.

My husband and I have been having weekly date nights here for several months. Portorosa has a lovely atmosphere, exemplary service and fabulous staff.

Great service. Great menu. Friendly highly recommend
One of our favourite restaurants in Freo, great food and now also in Spearwood, so even closer for us!
Absolutely fantastic food at the Fremantle restaurant. Easily the best authentic Italian cuisine my partner and I have ever experienced. Cannot recommend either the lasagne or gnocchi enough. We were out on an anniversary dinner and were seated in low lighting at the window, romantic perfection! We will be back, we loved it too much not to! Staff, service and food were all 10/10read more
Thank you for a wonderful birthday dinner - our table of 16 put the team to work for a good few hours by ordwring far roo many drinks and the service was wonderful - of course the food was delicious too! Thank you so much!read more
Waited over 1.5 hours for our meal of uncooked pasta that the waitress even admitted was almost raw. Found 9 beards in my chilli mussels not to mention they were also in the uncooked pasta marinara dish. Waited 20 minutes for a glass of wine to try and warm myself up after our table of 15 was placed in the open doorway which the manager has previously advised that only one of the 2 doors would be open and the heaters would be on.....NOT. Worst service and bad food and after my 9 year old child said the pasta with butter (such a simple dish) was like eating shoelaces and after complaining to still find it on the bill was outrageous.....3 hours in Portorosa and my child ate bread. I would not recommend this restaurant to my worst enemy. I just hope Rosa the namesake does not have to eat there. 2 of the 15 guests were satisfied.....bad stats in anyone's book!read more

Very average food and service wouldn't rush back
My wife and I and some friends of ours have visited Portorosa twice now and on both occasions the food has been excellent. I rang through our last reservation and spoke to a man named Sam who was very polite and happy to answer questions about GF options. The staff were unobtrusive, prompt and very polite. Our experiences have been great on both occasions and would recommend Portorosa to others. Thanks to Sam and staff for a good eveningread more

I forgot to book a table for Mother's Day. We rocked up at 11am when the doors opened. Was told there they were booked out, but to our surprise they shuffled some things so we could get lunch, if we stayed 90mins. Our waiter Chay was awesome. Friendly & attentive. Food was AMAZING! So thank you Portarosa for making my Mum happy on Mother's Day when I forgot to book. Muchly appriciated. It was our 2nd visit here & will continue to come when we are in Fremantle.read more

I am so unhappy with this restaurant. I have been a customer for many many years. My second last visit there the food standard was bad and I complained to the old man the owner and he just brushed it off and moved on to sonething else.I went there for my very last time as I won't ever be coming back on Tuesday. Wasn't busy maybe 10 or so other customers. I ordered a few things one thing was Polo Marino. The brocoli and carrots were off! The chicken was so thin and it had an overcooked almost burnt taste. The mashed potato dry and they now use less of the mushroom sauce. They have really cut back on meal size too. The garlic bread was tiny. I told the owner old lady.. she asked how was your meal? I said awful. She asked why and I told her.. she said sorry I'll hv to tel them (the cooks). Did she offer a discount as half my meal I couldn't eat as it was off NO. I told her how far we drove to get there. Did she care NO. And wat really sucks she knows we r regulars because she said she remembers us. But did she look after us NO! And this is from the owners themselves.Never going back and never recommending you to anyone.I go to christinas in vic park now.. cost less, bigger meals, better service and fresh food.read more
