When much-loved Italian restaurant Portofino was devastated by the Christchurch earthquakes, their loyal following missed the familial charm and flawless Italian fare.  Post-quake, and in a brand new building, the families shiny new venture, Venuti, sparkles with the elegance of dark wooden fittings, recessed lighting and the superior service that once set Portofino apart.

The SKOPE Solution

Having worked with owner, Michael Jaz and his family over the years, SKOPE, also a family owned company, was the first choice for providing commercial refrigeration for Venuti.  Impressed with SKOPE’s reputation for providing high quality, dependable, easy to use and easy to clean products, Venuti installed SKOPE’ Centaur undercounters and pizza cabinets, a TME and Backbar in the new fitout.
