Cuisine: A La Carte, Pizza, Share Plates
Price Point: Mains from $25 - $35+
A favourite with locals and visitors alike, this laid back spot is the only place on Palm Cove where you can listen to the sound of the surf while feasting on wood-fired pizzas fresh from the oven.
A large, covered terrace and sliding doors revealing stylish wooden interiors are the ideal way to make the most of North Queensland’s balmy weather. There are even cabanas where you can sun yourself and sip a cocktail as you wait.
The menu focuses on comfort classics with a seasonal twist. Tuck into sharing plates such as scallops in prosciutto, hearty salads, seafood, steaks, mouthwatering pastas and authentic pizzas.
Crowd-pleasers include red claw fettuccine and Tomahawk steak with crispy patatas bravas, while the signature pizzas are unmissable. Think sophisticated salmon on a charcoal base or slithers of beef with feta. There’s even a delicious vegan option on offer…
A cold beer is never far away at Portofino, but if you have a sweet teeth don’t forget to try one of their legendary dessert cocktails. Chocolate espresso martini anyone?
