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.

    excellent food and wine

  • ((((( 20 July 2017 by Paula from Chichester

    We booked our table as a celebration for our daughter's graduation and it was perfect. We all really enjoyed our meals and there was plenty for her to choose from as a vegetarian. The decoration was modern and chic, I particularly liked the colours and the lighting. The staff were friendly and helpful. My mackerel starter was heavenly.

    We arrived late but the staff were really lovely about it. We had a complimentary bottle of prosecco as it was our daughter's graduation which was lovely. The food was great. Real fish cakes ! No mash potatoes to take away the flavour just pure Fish! Lovely. Very relaxing atmosphere and definitely going there again. Thank you.

    Delicious food, we both had the salmon, it was cooked to perfection! The staff were friendly and attentive. Would definitely eat here again.

    A very good dining experience. Rather splendid in fact. Reluctantly, one star dropped for poor stock control with regard to their wine selection as our first three choices from the wine list were all unavailable. However, the staff recommended alternatives were excellent and the service, presentation and ambience were all splendid. As for the food? Simply wonderful. Their website claims they aim to serve Italian-influenced food using the philosophy of celebrating simple, quality ingredients. This would seem to describe perfectly the meals we thoroughly enjoyed. All our courses and individual dishes were excellent and I would very happily - and very firmly - recommend this restaurant. In summary an excellent restaurant and I look forward to a return visit.

    I was expecting good things from Porro but it was a bit disappointing. The mains sounded great on the menu but lacked flavour and seasoning, so left is a bit flat.
    Service us very good and the waiteess handled the feedback professionally and politely.

    Loved the negroni cocktail and the asparagus/fried egg starter.

    The food was great and table location excellent. Considering my size as I'm a tall individual and need extra leg room we were given a location with adequate space
