About Portello Rosso

A Spanish affair in Melbourne's Warburton Lane Making elegant use of its gritty location with a look of sharp urban calculated chic is Portello Rosso, and it’s catching the attention of those seeking out the coolest spots in Melbourne’s CBD. Well hidden away down a side alley (Warburton Lane), it’s easy to miss this intimate city gem with only a small red and white sign to show you it’s there. Blink and you might just miss it. Brought to you by the guys at Murmur upstairs, the beautiful tapas bar delivers simple but delicious fare with intoxicating Spanish flavours. One thing’s for sure, Portello Rosso is serious about food. The split-level space of black, vinyl-cushioned banquettes, industrial pendant lights and bentwood chairs boasts an impressive list of tapas and wines by the glass that include Mount Langi Billi Billi pinot grigio and Torbreck's Steading. As the name suggests, one of the eatery’s main focus is Jamon (dry-cured Spanish ham). The three types on offer are sliced on premises and are strongly represented on the menu. With cool backing tracks from the Cat Empire and Latin soul, and well paced service every time, this is the epitome of magic Melbourne dining. . Best dish: Three grades of Spanish Jamon: mild serano, more complex Joselito paleta and rich, nutty Iberico.

The paella was the best I had in Melbourne. The crispy pork belly was juicy,tender and skin was crispy.The croquette was delicious. Will defintely come back to try other dishes and another paella.

Extremely disappointed we were rushed through our booking, after only an hour into it we were told that the kitchen was closing (9pm) and if we wanted anything else we had to order it there and then .... Including dessert! We hadn't even received our mains This was then compounded by the staff constantly coming to the table asking if we had finished with dishes which were clearly not finished with! This happened about a dozen times. All of this was because they wanted to close early because the restaurant was quite empty. Totally unacceptable The Standard of food was also disappointing, we have been here many times and the food was always good but this time it was very average. I also dislike the fact that the kitchen add things onto dishes that they don't mention on the menu (I.e. Aioli, mayonnaise & cheese) Overall I wouldn't recommend this restaurant anymore

We has a night out with kids. Maybe a special tapas menu for children will be something to explore?
