Creating a wonderful fusion of modern British dishes with strong Italian influences, Porro is a sleek, contemporary setting that celebrates regional ingredients and social dining.
The Porro menu brings together Italian staples with regional recipes – favourites include roasted belly pork with fennel and apple purée, roast squash and salsa verde, and pasta recipes like pappardelle with braised Welsh ox cheek and parmesan. There are dishes perfect for sharing, like Monmouthshire lamb and Herefordshire pork meatball, as well as roasted artichoke, speck de montagne and anchovy pizza.
Carefully sourced wines feature at Porro Cardiff, as well as a selection of beers and ciders. On the Porro dessert menu, there are irresistible sweets like almond, lemon and orange cake with mascarpone, and dark chocolate torte with salted chocolate sauce and hazelnut ice cream.
Offering a perfect blend of British and Mediterranean flavours, Porro sits on the bustling Llandaff High Street, 4 minutes' drive from Fairwater Rail Station.

Customer reviews for Porro
((((* 25 October 2016 by Paul Seligman from Cardiff
Sunday lunch for the second time. Whitebait starter slightly disappointing - I never like to taste the oil on a fried dish and it was far more salty than spicy, as a devilled dish should be.
Compensated for by an excellent lamb dinner, and my companions were equally pleased with their choices. Vegetables perfectly cooked. Gravy even better than our previous visit - but all three of us would prefer it to be served separately so that we could choose how much and on what to put it. I don't expect a restaurant to put, say, salt, vinegar and ketchup on my chips for me, same principle should apply!
Service was friendly and attentive throughout except for an excessively long delay trying to pay.

My wife had eaten at Porro several times for lunch and we enjoyed the evening a la carte menu very much. The food and service were excellent. The Lamb Rump which was very good. The staff were friendly, attentive and pleasant throughout. The decor and ambience cannot be faulted. All in all a lovely time was had celebrating our 39th wedding anniversary!
(Just one point is that in common with many places the wine list is a bit sparse of affordable choice. We had a good Monrepulciano Red at £18 which was the cheapest -- next up price wise was £23 and then by a few alternatives up to £50. I think there should be more options offered in the £18 to £23 range so that the customer does not always feel that his choice is solely price driven.)

We've been before, so knew what to expect. The food was very good, as usual. The service was OK and the staff were friendly and helpful.
However, we thought the cost of drinks quite high, £9.50 for a large glass of wine and £4 for 0.5litre of sparkling water.

Very nice food. Service was good and friendly. One area for improvement for me would be the acoustics in the restaurant. Lots of hard finished in the restaurant area means that sound bounces around making it difficult to hear conversation at the table. Might not be an issue in all parts of the dining area, but was a problem for our table opposite the bar.

Excellent food, nice staff. A little disappointed with the time between courses. We arrived promptly for our 7pm booking as we prefer to eat fairly early, but it was well past 8 before we received our main courses perhaps 20mins after the starters.
Didn't impact too much on our experience as we had lots to talk about, luckily.

Very welcoming and helpful. Choice of set lunch or a la carte. We chose the set lunch and enjoyed everything. The waitress advised us about our intended choice of wine and let us taste before we ordered a bottle - it was perfect. The service was well paced and we were well looked-after.

Great food, wine and ambience, consistent over two visits. Service variable- depending on who is serving you ( excellent to poor)
