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.

Bit over priced.

Nice dessert, good service. We ordered 5 desserts for 6 ppl to share, sad that the table is not big enough for sharing plates. We juggle things around but overall it's a pleasant place to meet up.

Lovely jamon iberico. Paella was lovely but lacked the flavour of saffron. Beautiful textures and ingredients and a nice crust around the outside however.

Lovely staff. Food is expensive but very good quality produce so is justifiable. Love the charcuteria and the octopus.

Felt like a production line, food was mediocre, staff were slow to provide menus, quick to ask if we had decided on food, quick to take plates away when barely finished eating

Still the best pork & paella I've ever had
