Good food, and don't forget your wine

Went for a company meeting. The food was good. I had the Rigatoni Primavera, and it was very good food. The staff was decent with the usual mistakes and forgets. It was a good experience and I would recommend it for a night out

I like Portovino as a restaurant and normally everything is quite good. Last week we went for Sunday Brunch and it was abysmal! The food was OK but the way they organize the place was horrible. If you are seated upstairs you will need to force your way through all the people waiting in the entrance with their coats and... More

The real winner here is customer service. I met a lovely lady who just made me feel like a valued customer. An extra smile goes a long way; eye contact shows sincerity!I will be back soon

Last night we had our company Christmas party at Portovino. We were made to feel unwelcomed there right from the start. They had wedged us between two other parties and did not have sufficient seating for our reservation. The second we sat there they rudely asked us what we wanted because they were in a rush. We had to ask... More

I love this restaurant when I am in the mood for italian this is the only place I think of. I always order their meatballs on the side of my dish because they are out of this world good and huge. Service is great, too. Highly recommend. Also its a bring your own wine which helps with cost.

I went there to have some good scaloppini but instead of veal they offered one chicken dish. This is always the sign that profit overrides quality offerings. So I had the rack of lamb. It was good but the potato was burned, almost unedible. My companion had to send back her penne salmon dish. To their credit, they offered a... More

We went to this resaurant in August, never been there before, a little apprehensive a bout food. Both my husband and I ordered the Salmon, was delicious, a good size portion with vegetables, and as Seniors the price was less than 20.$ per person. Service was exceptional, friendly and so attentive to us all. Will return there on our next... More

If one did not know any better, one would bypass this restaurant. Based solely on its location- knowing where to exit off the autoroute onto the service road, next to a Tim's, one's impression is tired, forgotten restaurant. However once inside one is easily transported to a wonderful setting with wall to wall frescos, comfortable dining, and a usually very... More
