yo quiero de todo un poco
(i want a little of everything)
The Spanish way of eating is more than just satisfying an empty stomach - food is savoured and indulged communally.
It's not hard to fall in love with their way of life and their cuisine: simple, unpretentious and using only fresh, seasonal and mouth-watering ingredients.
At Portello Rosso, we want to share our experiences and memories with you.
Sit back, relax with a glass of wine, share a bit of everything and we hope you enjoy a little dose of Spain... without the jet-lag.
