Good food with good service
26 December 2016
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.

Food and service was generally very good with great surroundings. Menu was limited especially if you expecting traditional Italian dishes cause you won't find them

First time at the restaurant. Heard great reviews about it on social media and friends so decided to try it for dinner with my wife.
Very tastefully decorated with a warm welcoming feel to the place. Maintaining The brick walls throughout was a great touch. Perhaps I wouldn't have had a partition as soon as you enter the restaurant as the first thing greeting you but that's a small detail.
For starters had the carrot and beetroot salad with goats cheese and my wife the lamb and pork meatball which was devine. We both had the Welsh lamb and pork belly crackling and lentils as mains. Fantastic dish! Beautiful welsh lamb cooked medium rare with lovely kale and salty lentils which went very well with the dish. We had some greens with lemon and parmesan cheese as a side, never had parmesan on vegetables before and it's great. The portion sizes are good (and I eat) so you could get away without the side.
For desert I had the chocolate torte with salty chocolate sauce and hazelnut ice cream. Very rich and moorish. My wife had ice cream with a shot of espresso.
The bill was 71 quid including 2 drinks which in my opinion is a reasonable amount to pay for 3 courses each of excellent food.
We had a mix up with our bill and how I asked for my lamb to be cooked but that has affected our experience. Lovely and helpful staff and nothing was too much to deal with.
Highly recommended and looking forward to making Porro a regular.

Food was lovely. However had to wait a long time for the food and one of the waitresses was unwelcoming and quite rude at times.

Lovely restaurant with a varied and interesting menu. Excellent food and service. Cosy-feeling decor and an altogether relaxed atmosphere with capable, helpful staff. One of my favourites is Caesar salad but everything else I've tried is fantastic.

We had a lovely experience on our first visit to Porro. We were a little disappointed that, because of the Rugby, the menu was a bit restricted, however what was available was delicious and interesting. We are vegetarian so sometimes we don't get clever food but that was not the case here. We can't wait to re visit on a night when the full menu is available.

A really good meal food quality was excellent. Was a bit surprised that we were put upstairs as there was room in the main part downstairs. This meant that we felt a bit isolated as we were only a group of 3 for my daughters 26 th birthday .

Food slightly too highly flavoured, our first visit but would certainly return, where do recommend your customers to park?
