We know, how strikingly hard it is to survive or even flourish in the neighbourhood, that has placed Riga on the European gourmet map. Portofino restaurant is a rare story of success. Aristocratic Ausek¬a street Art Nouveau location, sky high ceilings, noble Old-World wood and brass interior design set the right mood for Italian gastronomy. The establishment is known for its upscale seafood meals, gentle tartares/carpaccio and bonafide steaks and grills. Also serves less pricey but not less luscious pastas, pizzas and salads, for the trendy-healthy, they have special gluten free menu. One of the best Italian wine selections in town.
