Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Solid cooking, with a good representation of italian flavours. On the pricey side for Riga standards. Nice to dine outside as well.

Worst dining experience in Riga. We weren’t served any food after 90 minutes waiting time. We left restaurant at 9 pm without having any dinner!! We have received an insane explanation that we are not served in priority way as we have arrived to the...restaurant without a reservation. However restaurant accepted our order. Just a shame. Please think twice when you choose a restaurant.More

My friend and I ( only 2 people) visited portofino at Friday night, as a frequent customer, I know not always so many people, so didn’t book in advance, and the waiter rejected me, saying it’s gonna be full of people, and after 5 minutes...my friend came ( happen to know their boss), saying he knows their boss, and the waiter immediately allowed him to enter. What a discrimination!! And the night still got lots of empty tables, this is how they treat a frequent customer ( as an Asian living in Latvia, it’s easy to recognize, our office visited this restaurant almost every month, tipped them every time, and this was the reward). Very pooooooooor serviceMore

I had booked in advance - we arrived on time - very attentive new staff of just 2 weeks with the restaurant allowed me to try alternative wine - a Primitivo - turned out to be excellent and a Kiwi Marlborough RED wine (Pinot Noir)...so i would know what I was missing. The steak came in looking perfectly - like Table Mountain in South Africa(?) cooked to perfection and I sank my teeth into it and just enjoyed! All three of us were pleased. I hope I do not have to wait another 8 moths till I come back - my waitress was perfect and had humour!More

We were there with my colleagues, and then again with my Godmother. Because this is just the place you want to come back to. Anything you choose is perfect in term of presentation and, of course, in terms of taste. And the service is at...the top level. I would recommend this place to everybody.More

We had not booked a table, when asked we were told rather rudely told to choose indoors or outdoors. And when we chose outdoors we were given a table along the sidewalk; we were given a table from their terrace when we asked if we...could move. Points for that! In Italian restaurant you would expect the pasta to be freshly made; unfortunately my partners pasta was not in his meal. I ordered duck myself, and that was very well prepared, but unfortunately served with instant mash. Not something you expect in a restaurant. Both desserts were delicious; chocolate fondant and tiramisu.More

An incredibly delicious Italian restaurant in Riga with a huge selection of food and wines As is probably customary in Riga, for a good restaurant should always make a reservation in advance. Otherwise you won't get a seat. We ordered baby calamari, goat cheese, carpaccio...and artichokes. For the main course we ordered veal chop, pizza, and sea bass in a salt crust. We ate everything to the end and were incredibly enthusiastic about the pleasure we experienced. We took a Sicilian red wine for dinner, which was really, really tasty. Sort of like the Primitivo. The prices are definitely a bit higher than average, but definitely recommended. Can only say next time it's definitely on the list.More

Food was exellent, both starter and main course. Prosecco suited well for the starter. Sommelier is required to be able to tell more about the large variety of white wines to suit the main course.

This was a business lunch to a for me new place in Riga, near the embassies, that I had often driven by. With its intriguing name the experience just whetted my appetite more the longer I was there - great atmosphere, very positive a waiter...dressed for the occasion, the food delivery when it came - like a painting which I remarked on and thus chose for my write-up, expertly cooked and good attention given us, but not overdone which allowed us to cover politics, Asian demographics, country wealth and history and all blended into what we had for this very special lunch. Thank you!More

If you are into real authentic Italian food, in a nice setting, Portofino is the place to be. Plenty of choice on the menu, prepared and served with great care. You can really taste the sentiment they put into it whilst preparing your dish. As...it should be ! 🇮🇹More
