About Portofino's

RESTAURANT

Portofino first opened its doors in October 1997 and since then, has been a landmark restaurant to the seaside town of Hartlepool. On 19th February 2018, Noel Stamp, the head-chef since 2000 purchased Portofino from Krimo.

The Bistro-Pizzeria, located on the Historic Quay, overlooks Hartlepool’s iconic landmark, HMS Trincomalee and the popular Marina.

Portofino mixes Italian, Mediterranean and North African cuisines to serve
a delicious combination of Pizzas, Pastas, Fish, Poultry, Steaks and Tagines.

The Happy Hour Menu includes just about every dish in our A La Carte Menu. It is also available all week offering the best value in Hartlepool.

A few of Krimo’s Old Favourites, such as Boureks, Lamb Tagine and Fillet Paesano still feature in Portofino’s Menu.

A Few Words From

OUR CHEF

Now that Krimo has hung up his apron, I have taken the reins to carry Portofino for many more years to come.

I started here in 1998, just a few months after Portofino opened its doors, simply making pizzas a couple of evenings a week.

I enjoyed working here so much that I abandoned my catering course at Kirby College (Middlesbrough) and concentrated on making my way up the ladder.

Within two years, I was promoted to the position of head-chef in charge of a bustling kitchen.

Over the last 19 years, with Krimo’s encouragement, I learnt just about everything one needs to know to run a successful restaurant.

Now that my dream of owning and running Portofino has come true, I intend to carry on all the good work that was done over the last few years to keep the restaurant at the top of Hartlepool’s dining scene.

Thank you for your continued loyalty and encouragement
