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.

    My friend visiting from London and myself visited and had a truly delicious and well prepared meal. We particularly loved the way the fresh vegetables were served. Very delicious. The ambience of the place, warm, soft music was also good so that we could be comfortable and catch up with beautiful food and a lovely chat. Thank you.

    Hadn’t been for a while so it was good to see some changes on the menu. We had the set lunch - 3 courses for £15. Very good value for well cooked food. Large portions too. Waiting staff could have been better informed although one had only been there for 2 weeks so excused. Nice atmosphere but the restaurant is cold so hopefully they’ll sort out heating for the winter.

    Lovely welcome from very friendly and attentive staff. The food was superb! I was with my brother and sister in law and we all had different dishes from the specials menu-all were excellent. I will definitely visit again. It’s so nice to have a quality restaurant within walking distance of my house.Well done Porro!

    We had been to Porro. Endorse, and hadn't ever been disappointed. The staff are friendly, and attentive, and most importantly know about the food they are serving.
    It was quite quiet when we visited, just a few tables occupied. We ordered drinks, studied the varied menu, and made our choices.
    To start, Frito Misto, a huge portion of baby deep fried fish, with a humours dip, it was delicious. Also a starter that was like a chorizo paste on sour dough( it was called something far more sofisticated, but I can't remember ) this was also a generous size, and tangy, spicy, wonderful.
    For main we chose, chicken with mushrooms and spinach, served with a large bowl of the most gorgeous crunchy chips - yum ! Also pasta, with slow coooked on cheek, unctuous , tender, served in a delicious sauce.

    The food was as always beautifully cooked, and presented. The portions are large, and maybe we should have thought about this before hand as one of couldn't eat it all.

    If there was any criticism it would be that the main course came out as soon as the starters were finished, too soon.That was perhaps because the restaurant was not very busy, and the chef was on a roll.

    My husband and I had a superb Sunday lunch at Porro. The staff were helpful and pleasant. I had the best roast dinner for a long time with succulent Welsh lamb and loads of different vegetables. My husband enjoyed his beef just as much. The restaurant had a good feel to it and seemed popular.
