L'avis de Gault&Millau
In the center of Split, on a beautiful square above the Peristil, there is a restaurant Portofino. The terrace in the courtyard is beautifully decorated, and the tables covered with white tablecloths make the place very sophisticated. Portofino offers international cuisine, and their guests are mostly foreigners. All the waiters speak excellent English and are very professional. When we visited them, the menu was only in English, and we still think that they should supplement it with Croatian. Among the appetizers there are recognizable Insalata caprese (with mozzarella, cherry tomatoes and basil), Caesar salad (green-romana- salad, hard-boiled eggs, parmesan, croutons and anchovies), gazpacho ( cold tomato and cucumber soup). Not very inventive but likeable summer dishes that always find “their customer”. This time we opted for a pumpkin cream soup. A fine, creamy soup with roasted pumpkin seeds and a few drops of pumpkin oil. We especially liked their capellini arrabbiata (op.a. the name is misspelled in the menu- arrabbiata in Italian means angry). Although the sauce is not prepared according to the original Italian recipe with tomatoes, peperoncino, grated pecorino, hard sheep cheese, and a little fresh parsley, thin spaghetti with large prawns, poached egg, basil and grated cheese Grana padano were delicious. We also tasted their Filet mignon, an excellent veal steak in Perigueux sauce, a classic of French gastronomy, in which truffles were added to a reduced shallot sauce. We finished our meal with a light raspberry cheesecake, a refreshing dessert that nicely rounded off our meal. Portofino offers an interesting selection of cheese, and the list of wine and other drinks is excellent. If, after all the local food restaurants, you want a touch of international cuisine, Portofino is the place for you. We recommend that you book a table in advance.
