Riga This Week - FREE RIGA CITY GUIDE made by locals since 1992


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.
