Portobello's Italian Restaurant

Authentic cuisine, premium wines and outstanding views from the very front of the ship make this a superb experience. Scenic Tours is the only European river cruising company to give you a choice of onboard dining and because it’s all included you won’t be asked to pay a supplement to dine at Portobello’s.
