SquareMeal Review of
Portobello Ristorante Pizzeria
They take pizzas seriously at this lively venue, which attracts a motley crew of celebrity neighbours, regulars & tourists. The slow-rising sourdough takes 42 hours to prepare before being
baked in a custom-built oven to give an airy texture & crisp crust, while toppings tick all the usual Parma ham/mozzarella boxes. If you’re famished – or looking to share – then order by the
metre. There’s also a daily selection of fresh seafood such as sea bass, bream & squid, which are simply grilled & doused in olive oil & fresh mint for a taste of southern Italy. The
rustic-style dining room can get rammed at weekends, so book ahead or be prepared to give your table back after 90 minutes. A large, heated terrace ensures a regular turnover on fine days.
